How To Improve Your Smile – Choose A Bonded Tooth Fillings Treatment

Anyone who is not happy with the appearance of their smile can make a great tooth bonding candidate. There are a few very clear reasons why dental bonding is the ideal way to look after your teeth.

What are bonded whited fillings?

Most people would be happy with a natural white smile all of the time, but it is not always possible for this to happen. That is, it is not always possible to have one without the help of cosmetic procedures and in the past, they have been expensive to go through and also can take up a lot of time. If you have tooth bonding, that will be the reality and it is becoming a more and more popular way to have the perfect smile and hide the imperfections that have become a problem for you.

You could opt for tooth bonding and your dentist will be pleased to do this for you. You will require this on the teeth that have become discolored, and the good news is that it can be done on any number of teeth. If they are all a poor color it can be done, but also if one is damaged then it can be done just on that one.

A bond is a composite resin that will have been color coded to ensure that it is exactly the same color as your teeth. It can also be added to a tooth that has been damaged, so that chip that you hate so much can be covered and only you and your dentist will know it is there. Although we should always take good care of our teeth especially if they are starting to decay, tooth bonding can be a good alternative.

ARE YOU READY TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR TEETH?

Why do we need tooth bonding or white fillings?

The main reason bonding treatments are needed is to keep our smiles healthy and looking good. If you don’t use them when they are needed, you will have a very substandard smile and cavities which can lead to dental pain. Confidence is a big part of the way we present ourselves, and if we know we have poor quality teeth – even if it is just the one – we will not want to be open and smile a lot. It may be wrong that we are judged by our appearance but that does happen, and we can be seen in a number of ways if we do not have bonded fillings.

Firstly, we will be seen as lazy when it comes to oral hygiene. Unless there has been an accident, we have let our teeth fall into a bad state of repair. Next, it will seem that we do not have pride on our appearance as there is a way to make things better and we cannot be bothered to do it. Most people will want to go through the bonding for their pride, while others will do it to stop criticism that will be made if they do not.

What is the benefit of bonded fillings?

Anyone who is not happy with the appearance of their smile can make a great tooth bonding candidate. There are a few very clear reasons why dental bonding is the ideal way to look after your teeth. One major reason is the fact that they are one of the more simple procedures that fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry. Another is the cost. As they are easy to fit they will not take a time and their manufacture helps to keep the cost down. When there is just the one tooth that needs to be bonded, it can be carried out in a single visit to the dentist, and it does not require someone to manufacture a product that will fit your teeth perfectly. Crowns require impressions to be taken and then a special item produced but this is not the case here.

It is also not necessary to remove a great deal of tooth enamel, so you are left with more of your own tooth than you would have been under other circumstances. The work can be done while you are not given anesthetic, so this is yet another advantage, although if it is a cavity that is being dealt with, that will be a different matter. While the product may not be as strong as a veneer, it will be easy and cost effective to replace when and if the time comes when it needs to be replaced.

How do you get a tooth bonding treatment?

When you need a filling, you go to the dentist and this is exactly the same when it comes to dental bonding. In the past it was generally metallic fillings that were fitted, but now white colored fillings are becoming the new standard. Your dentist should offer you the option of bonding, and also give you all of the details as you don’t want to get into a process that you are not sure about. It is hard to think of anything that you could be concerned about, but just in case you don’t fully understand, ask everything that you want to know and go into the treatment sure of what is going to happen.

As there is little difference between the two ways of filling, you will know what to expect. The dentist will examine the tooth carefully and remove any decay that has occurred. Next the bonding will be placed in the area that has been left and it will begin to set. They will smooth it off before it gets too hard, as you don’t want any rough edges that could catch your tongue or the inside of your cheeks. The final part is the finalizing of the setting and here a light is used to make sure that is stays where is has been placed. The big difference is that fact that it will be hard to tell where the tooth ends, and the filling begins.

 

What are the symptoms that require fillings or bonding?

The reasons for getting a bonding are the same as the reasons for getting fillings. There is a hole in the tooth and it needs to be filled. There is, however, an added advantage of bonding and that is the fact that is can cover poor quality teeth and also teeth that cannot be cleaned to the same level of whiteness that you want and are used to. They will give the protection that is required in less time and with an easier form of treatment.

Best dentist office visit ever! Not only are the staff charismatic, they are very knowledgeable too. They took the time to go over my X-rays with me and made sure I understood what everything was, down to the payment options. They did not rush my exam at all. There was no wait time from the moment I walked in the door to the moment my exam was completed. The office itself lives up to its name with the urban decor. It is also very clean. I would recommend anyone to come here if you're looking for competent, patient, and kind dentist and staff!

I went in today and they really made me feel comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and you can tell they make customer service a priority. They made sure the music playing was to my liking and made sure I was comfortable in my chair. The dentist was very knowledgeable and explained the whole process to me in a way that I can understand. I don't like going to the dentist, I don't know anyone that does, but I am glad I went to URBN Dental and wold recommend it to anyone looking for a dentist.

Just a few days after a visit with Dr. Bridget and I already feel the positive effects on my dental hygiene. She gave helpful and practical tips to brushing and flossing to make my routine more enjoyable. Everyone at URBN Dental Uptown was attentive and courteous to my needs from handling the insurance/financials to ensuring a pain/mess-free cleaning and filling. Looking forward to returning with improved dental health!

The staff here is extremely friendly and professional. From the very beginning, the staff greeted me with kindness and respect. My paperwork was filled out within 15 minutes and afterwards, the dentist called me back almost immediately.So the wait time for my first appointment was basically non-existent. I’m not sure if it’s normally like this or if it’s just a coincidence. Regardless, it was very nice to see the staff and dentists in perfect sync with servicing the customers as quickly and efficiently as possible.My first appointment here was primarily because I had a painful sensation on the bottom right of my tooth. It turned out to be a cavity as I expected. The dentist explained the procedure for a filling and I agreed to go through with it on my next appointment. Thank you for an honest experience that resulted in me learning what the problem with my tooth was.

Very satisfied with my recent experience at this dentist. As a first time customer, I walked in with low expectations, since I find this mentality to be effective for softening the blow if it turns out to be a disappointing service.Well, it turned out to be above average service from the staff at the front desk and the dentists themselves. They are all very professional and the dentists working here are patient when it comes to answering questions. I felt fully fulfilled after leaving the dental office. I’ll definireky be back.

I've never been to a more thorough and comprehensive dental appointment as the one at URBN Dental! They went over all of the photos and x-rays with me in detail to help explain all of the issues I had, and it's the first time I fully feel like I understand why I need to floss more consistently. They taught me how to properly floss and brush, and I even got a new electric toothbrush with my appointment. Would definitely recommend.

I was immediately greeted by friendly faces when i came in! Online scheduling and patient paperwork made it so easy to get an appointment with no waiting to go back to the room. Every person of staff from front desk, hygienist to dentist introduced themselves to me and took the time to explain everything they were doing. I’ve never had a dentist actually sit down and explain the biology behind flossing, bone health, nerve health etc. it was great to feel like I was being taken care of by true professionals. They were also very explanatory of exactly what my insurance covered and the cost breakout of all of my services. I would recommend this office to any of my friends and family.

The URBN Dental office is very beautiful! It is modern with natural wood and emerald green elements. I went in for my regular cleaning and exam after looking up 5+ dental offices in the area. I recently moved to uptown and am extremely happy to have found URBN Dental. The Hygienist, Angela, did not only give my advice in regards to my dental hygiene techniques, she educated me which made me more eager to go home and carry out my new routine. Dr. Bridget was very kind, answered all my questions, and gave me a great referral for my wisdom teeth extractions. I will be returning for all of my preventative and general dental needs!

Very friendly staff who put up with my inane sense of humor. The entire team team spoke with me 1:1, including:Dental assistants, hygienist, dentist, and insurance admin (explained everything to me in detail including how my insurance works).They explained my x-rays to me, the effects of flossing correctly / incorrectly. I feel like they gave me the education I didn't get as a child on how to care for my mouth, and why it's important. I was doing good stuff for my oral health-- just not correctly or with a positive attitude.GREAT aftercare package.

I am usually scared of going to the dentist for my annual cleaning but I was completely blown away by the amazing customer service from the staff. Julia was extremely helpful and explained my dental coverage and out of pocket costs. Angela did an exceptional job explaining to me about the importance of dental hygiene and actually taught me how to floss properly. The office was extremely clean and upscale. Dr. Bridget was very sweet and great bedside manners. She explained everything about the treatment plan in a very thorough and concise manner. I was extremely impressed by everyone on the office and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment.

From start to finish great experience. Impeccably clean office, high tech tools, & friendly staff. Went to get my top teeth contoured/shaped. They did a Hollywood star job! I now, have a flawless smile. I even went back the next day for a touch-up on one tooth & they took care of it, graciously. If you want quality cosmetic dentistry inside the loop; look no further. These folks are the best in class.

Great place for all your dental needs. Very inviting and friendly staff. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. I've been looking for a good dentist for awhile while neglecting my oral health, but now I think I've found my place. 10/10 would come back for a follow-up appointment.

Very friendly staff. The hygienist's were so knowledgeable and really took the time to teach you about your teeth, they gave my husband and I "homework" to improve our oral health. Love it! Angela was great, great sense of humor (made me laugh a lot) and very professional. Awesome job Nicole, very friendly and took the time to answer all the questions we had (love she was recommending eateries for hubby to take me :). Julia was great at the front counter very lively and knowledgeable as well. They all really took the time and customized everything for us. Able to get free electric toothbrushes but didn't have any in stock.

Love the location, the dentist AND the staff. Everyone there is awesome. It's rare that I leave a dentist office feeling just as good as when I arrive. I was sad I didn't get to see Snickers, but all in all I had a great experience my first time here. Glad to finally have a new "home" dentist since moving to Texas.

Beautiful location and office. Very friendly and welcoming staff! I had a great time conversing with them about movies and music. Dr. Nguyen and his staff were very knowledgeable and stressed the importance of making sure the patient knew what their game plan was. The office is very high tech as well so it was super cool to know that I was getting the latest tech being use on me.

The staff is wonderful, very friendly and informative. I love how they not only take X-rays, but also photos of all your teeth and put them on the big screen. They spent as much time as I needed to go over each area and explain specifics of each tooth. I definitely have a greater understanding of what is going on in there and what I need to do. I also love their space, it has a calming vibe with all kinds of artwork on display. You almost feel like you’re not at the dentist! Thank you all so much, I look forward to seeing you all again! (Said no one to their dentist 😉 )
