Dental bonding offers a quick and cost-effective way to address both functional and cosmetic issues with the teeth. Fresno cosmetic dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake can use dental bonding to repair teeth that are chipped or cracked, misshapen, gapped, discolored, or decayed. Bonding also offers a wonderful solution for covering roots exposed by receding gums.

dental bonding may last for several years when properly cared for. To learn more, call Fresno cosmetic dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake at <a href=559-224-0103 today" src="/sites/" style="width: 300px; height: 200px; margin-left: 3px; margin-right: 3px; float: right;" />When cared for properly, a single dental bonding treatment should last for several years before requiring a touch up. Maintaining the strength of your bonding will, however, require some effort on your part.

To help ensure your bonding materials last as long as possible, it is important that you:

  • Brush your teeth after every meal and snack with a soft bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste
  • Floss both morning and night
  • Refrain from biting on ice, hard candy, or nonedible items like pens
  • Visit our Fresno office every six months for cleanings and examinations

Unlike tooth enamel, dental bonding cannot be whitened. This makes it important that you keep teeth clean through brushing, but also that you limit your intake of dark foods and beverages. During your routine visits, Dr. Miyake can remove some surface staining from your restorations, but deeper stains will permanently impact the brightness of dental bonding. Fortunately, restoring dental bonding is just as quick and effective as placing it initially, and can easily be completed in a single office visit. Dr. Miyake will recommend this service as needed to help keep your smile bright and strong.
