Is it possible for a 3mm gap in my teeth to be filled with dental bonding?

That's a lot: It's best to seek the opinion of a cosmetic dentist and an orthodontic specialist to determine what is best in your situation. If you only have the space between your upper front two teeth and you are adding 1.5 mm of bonding to the width of each tooth - you want to be assured they won't look as wide as chicklets (unusually wide). ...Read more

Food to avoid after dental bonding? I had a tooth bonded yesterday, and while my dentist gave me a list of foods to eat, he didn't say what to avoid. And, how long will have to avoid food on the list? .

Food to avoid after dental bonding? I had a tooth bonded yesterday, and while my dentist gave me a list of foods to eat, he didn't say what to avoid. And, how long will have to avoid food on the list? .

Staining: Most bonding materials are resin-based, that is, plastics. They are porous and will stain. I tell my patients to avoid any food that would stain a white tablecloth. Fyi, porcelain is not porous. That is why we recommend porcelain for the best long-term cosmetic result. ...Read more

Does dental bonding work for filling in cavities? I've read that you can have a dental bonding procedure performed to fill in cavities. Is this true? Are there any advantages to it over regular fillings? .

Does dental bonding work for filling in cavities? I've read that you can have a dental bonding procedure performed to fill in cavities. Is this true? Are there any advantages to it over regular fillings? .

I: I assume that you are referring to amalgam or silver fillings as "regular fillings", and "dental bonding" as bonded composite fillings. Either one replaces the lost tooth structure destroyed by cavities. Amalgam fillings look unesthetic, conduct hot and cold more to the nerves of the teeth, and therefore often cause more sensitivity when drinking or eating very hot and cold liquids or food. Bonded composite fillings sometimes wear more than amalgam fillings, but look more esthetic, often appear "invisible" and actually bond to tooth structure, thereby making them stronger, rather than weaker once filled. Generally speaking, I would much prefer to have bonded composite fillings in my own mouth as there are many more advantages to them. You and other readers should be aware that they are usally more costly and many insurance companies will not pay for the additional cost on posterior (or back) teeth, which is unfortunate. ...Read more

How long does it take dental bonding to feel normal? I had dental bonding done on my front teeth, and it just like my teeth are too big or bulky now. Is this common, and if so, how long until it feels normal? .

How long does it take dental bonding to feel normal? I had dental bonding done on my front teeth, and it just like my teeth are too big or bulky now. Is this common, and if so, how long until it feels normal? .

Sorry, Never: If the dental bonding feels bulky, then it will always feel bulky and you never will be happy. This is one of the major reasons dental bonding is considered inferior to porcelain veneers. Call your dentist, you will be thrilled with porcelain veneers result, which will be a beautiful and radiant smile. ...Read more

When do I know that I should have my dental bonding replaced? I've had some bonding on my front teeth for about five years now. I know you can expect them to last for around seven years, and I think mine still look fine, but i'd like to know if there's an

The: The life expectancy of a bonding can vary depending on the application, the material and your personal home care. Although you are using seven years as a guideline, many bondings can last well beyond that time. If you feel as though they are still cosmetically pleasing and your dentist tells you that they are functionally intact, then they are fine and don't need replacement. ...Read more

Consider Ortho: Depending on the size of your spaces, orthodontic treatment may be the most conservative and long lasting way to close the spaces and give you a great looking smile. Sometimes with just veneers or bonding, the size proportions can be off and tooth structure needs to be removed removed. Ortho eliminates or decreases tooth enamel removal. A detailed wax up is needed so see the results prior. ...Read more

What is the best way to cosmetically fix jagged teeth? Due to way too many years of drinking soda, I have some teeth with rough edges on both my upper and lower jaw that I want fixed. I'm not sure what to choose between dental bonding, tooth contouring, t

First: First of all let me say that "jagged" teeth are not usually the result of soda drinking. It sounds as though this is occurring on both upper and lower teeth and may be the result of a grinding habit. Any of the methods you mentioned may be the correct one depending on the damage done, but more important is the possible need for a bite guard appliance after the fix to prevent it from happening again. ...Read more
