A chipped or slightly cracked tooth can be healthy but oh, so unattractive. At Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi offers his patients many cosmetic dentistry services. A simple and budget-friendly one is composite resin bonding. It could solve your minor smile flaws in just one visit.

What is composite resin?

It's a tooth-colored compound--very like a putty--which your cosmetic dentist uses to repair small defects in your tooth enamel. Maybe you have:

  • A narrow gap between two teeth
  • Small chips and faint cracks on some front teeth
  • Dark stains from nicotine or coffee
  • Craze lines and pits
  • An oddly shaped or irregularly sized tooth because of hereditary factors

Whatever the minor flaw is, you want it gone. Fortunately, composite resin repairs do not require extensive enamel resurfacing, crowning, or any long, complicated treatment. A quick exam and X-ray can tell Dr. Zomorrodi if bonding is the way to go.

How composite resin bonding works

It's a mix of plastic and ceramic. To apply it, your dentist roughens the tooth surface and paints on a thin etching liquid. Then, your cosmetic dentist molds and sculpts the applied resin to the right shape and size. Dr. Zomorrodi's skill helps him affect a realistic repair. Then, he hardens the resin. That's the end of the procedure.

It takes just minutes per tooth. Often, bonding is the last step in a more extensive cosmetic dentistry plan. Also, dentists across the US use this versatile and durable material to repair tooth decay.

Advance Dental Care in Naperville offers an amazing range of aesthetic services, many of which are more complex than composite resin bonding. Your dentist will discuss your wishes before beginning any treatment.

Caring for your renewed tooth

You can use your tooth right away. However, as with all your teeth, treat it gently. Don't chew your fingernails or pencil. Avoid peanut brittle and candy apples. These things could chip your composite resin. Avoid smoking, and limit coffee and other things that could stain your repair and your natural enamel surfaces, too.

Also, brush and floss as usual. See Dr. Zomorrodi twice a year for a check-up and hygienic cleaning. Your composite resin bonding will last for years.

A healthy smile should look good, too
