Do You Know Really Know Your Smile?
Tooth enamel is the visible portion that covers our teeth and offers protection from damage due to injury and everyday motions such as chewing and biting. It is the hardest substance in your body, however it can wear away over time when exposed to a buildup of bacteria, acidic foods and drinks, or other forms of decay.
Dentin is the second hardest layer of living tissue located just under the enamel of the teeth. It transmits nerve sensation–meaning, when you have a tooth infection and it hurts, it has reached the dentin.
Have you ever wondered why your process of teeth whitening isn’t working? It might be due to the fact that your natural dentin, which will be unaffected by whitening, is off-colored. In this case dental bonding or veneers can provide a more effective, longer-lasting result.
Why Should I Correct Chipped Or Cracked Teeth?
Our enamel acts as insulation against discomfort or pain when consuming foods that are hot or cold, and protecting the inner layers of the teeth.
Any chips, cracks, or tooth decay can make it a challenge for enamel to protect our teeth, and can expose the teeth to harmful bacteria or symptoms of tooth sensitivity or decay. To avoid a root canal or similar dental issues, ask your family dentist about restorative dental care today!
Contouring and Bonding
Are you interested in removing years of visible wear and tear in little time? Uneven, misshapen, and poorly aligned teeth also deserve some love (and reshaping!).
During the bonding process, Dr. Bickel will apply a tooth-colored, putty-like material resin to your teeth to improve their color and/or fill in spaces, chips, irregularities or discoloration. Next, he will paint a conditioning liquid on your teeth, helping the resin stick to the enamel. Finally, a light is shined against the to harden it. The entire process takes about 30 minutes to one hour and is non-invasive. Totally painless!
Contouring is a cost effective method for evening out length, correcting chipped, cracked, and overlapping teeth and straightening crooked teeth. During this process, a small amount of enamel is gently reshaped with a laser, and polished to a smooth surface. It generally does not require any sort of anesthetic. Each tooth reshaping takes roughly 30 minutes to complete.
