At our Nashua, NH dentist office, we understand that every unique patient has very particular concerns and goals when it comes to their smile, so we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services. We can even help patients plan a schedule for multiple treatments so you can design your own custom smile makeover.
For example, some patients who are self-conscious about both their gums and their teeth have combined tooth bonding with gum reshaping to take care of their “gummy smile” as well. Chances are, if there’s something that you are less than happy with when it comes to your smile, we can help you improve your appearance and boost your confidence!
We accept a variety of payment options for your convenience and can often see patients same-day if you call before noon!
Learn The Smile Flaws Tooth Bonding Can Fix
We offer a lot of really great cosmetic options at our Nashua, NH dentist office but few are as versatile as tooth bonding. Teeth whitening, for example, can make a huge difference in the color of your teeth, but can’t do anything to fix other issues.
Tooth bonding is a process that involves shaping tooth-colored material onto the surface of your teeth. When we first apply it, the material is easily shaped and manipulated, but once we get it in the position and shape we want, we harden the material as we would with a tooth-colored filling.
Because tooth bonding literally covers up smile flaws and can be precisely applied and shaped, it is incredibly versatile. Among other applications, tooth bonding can be used to conceal:
- Small chips
- Minor cracks
- Stubborn stains or discoloration
- Uneven grooves in the surface of teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Teeth with small gaps between them
- Slightly crooked teeth
The process can be performed very quickly and does not involve any pain. Depending on how many teeth you’d like to get tooth bonding on, we can most likely complete your treatment in a single appointment.
Tooth bonding does not affect your lifestyle after it is put in place either. You won’t have to change your diet, so you can still eat all the foods you love. You also won’t have to do anything special to take care of your teeth. Just brush, floss, and maintain your routine dental cleanings and exams as you normally would!
It’s important to know that tooth bonding is not a restorative treatment and can only be performed on healthy teeth. If you have a significantly damaged tooth, we will need to repair it somehow before tooth bonding could be an option.
As mentioned above, tooth bonding does not involve any pain, but patients who get nervous at the dentist may still want to take advantage of some of our comfort options to make the visit more pleasant.
Regardless of the particular treatments you are going to receive from us, we will greet you warmly when you arrive at our office. We will listen intently to your concerns and answer any questions you have. We can also explain each step of every procedure we are going to provide beforehand so you’ll have a good idea of what to expect.
To help you feel nice and cozy, we offer soft pillows and warm blankets during every appointment. You can also choose some relaxing music to listen to during your procedure. This will help distract you if you are nervous.
As mentioned above, tooth bonding is a fairly simple process and can often be completed rather quickly. That said, if you’d like to take your time and have us work at your pace, we can provide a longer appointment by request.
If all that doesn’t put you at ease, we may be able to relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation. The dental sedation we offer comes in the form of a pill that you will take at a predetermined time before your appointment so you can feel completely relaxed when you arrive.
