What is teeth bonding in Liverpool ?

Bonding is a composite resin filling placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. Composites are the solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth. Bonding will lighten any stains you may have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Basically, bonding will cover any natural flaws applying a thin coating of a plastic material on the front surface of your teeth. After this, your cosmetic dentist will apply a bonding material and sculpt, color and shape it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished.

How long does tooth bonding last in Liverpool ?

While the traditional silver fillings last about seven years, these composites should last about seven to eleven years.

Procedure Brief: Tooth Bonding in Liverpool

How is Tooth Bonding Accomplished in Liverpool ?

A very mild etching solution is applied to your teeth to create very small crevices in the tooth's enamel structure. These small crevices provide a slightly rough surface permitting a durable resin to bond materials to your teeth. The resin is then placed on your tooth and high-intensity light cures the resins onto your tooth's surface - with each individual layer of resin hardening in just minutes. When the last coat has been applied to your tooth, the bonded material is then sculpted to fit your tooth and finely polished.
The resin comes in many shades so that we can match it to your natural teeth. Due to the layers involved, this procedure will take slightly longer than traditional silver fillings because multiple layers of the bonding material are applied. Typically bonding takes an hour to two hours depending on your particular case.

Types of Tooth Bonding Procedures in Liverpool

There are two types of bonding. What type is indicated in your situation depends upon whether you have a small area or a larger area that requires correction.

For small corrections in Liverpool

These are one appointment fillings which are color-matched to the tooth and are bonded to the surface for added strength. These are most appropriate for small fillings and front fillings as they may not be as durable for large fillings.

For larger corrections in Liverpool

Dental lab-created tooth-colored fillings require two appointments and involve making a mold of your teeth and placing a temporary filling. A dental laboratory then creates a very durable filling to custom-fit the mold made from your teeth. These fillings are typically made of porcelain. The custom-fit filling is then bonded to your tooth on your return visit. This type is even more natural looking, more durable and more stain resistant.

Who is a candidate for tooth bonding in Liverpool ?

If you have close, small gaps between your front teeth, or if you have chipped or cracked teeth, you may be a candidate for bonding. Bonding is also used for patients who have discolored teeth, uneven teeth, gum recession or tooth decay. Bonding material is porous, so smokers will find that their bonding will yellow. If you think you are a candidate for bonding, discuss it with your dentist.

Advantages & Disadvantages of Tooth Bonding in Liverpool


Advantages of dental bonding in Liverpool :

Esthetics is the big advantage over silver fillings. As silver does not stick to teeth, entirely healthy tooth structure is usually removed to keep a silver filling in place. Composites permit your cosmetic dentist to remove only the decayed area of your tooth. Unlike silver fillings, composite bonding expand just like your teeth and are much less likely to cause cracks in your tooth. Composites bond directly to the tooth providing support. Composites can be used to fill in cracks, chips and gaps - and will match the color of your other teeth.

Disadvantages of the dental bonding procedures in Liverpool :

Bonding with composites simply costs more in material and time.

Endodontics in Liverpool (also known as root canal treatment) is a specialty of dentistry, that deals with the area inside a tooth. Your teeth have a core of blood vessels and nerves at their centre. This living tissue is called the pulp and is in a space called the root canal. The number of root canals in each tooth varies depending on how far back it is in your mouth. Front teeth often have one root canal, while back teeth may have three or more. The pulp tissue does contain nerve fibers it is also composed of arteries, veins, lymph vessels and connective tissue. The pulp can become diseased or injured and thus is unable to repair itself. The pulp then dies and endodontic treatment is required.

Endodontics in Liverpool removes blood vessels and nerves from a tooth which may be infected and/or damaged. It may also be required to remove a live nerve from a tooth (elective root canal theatment). A root canal infection can be caused by several things including decay, injury and possibly also gum disease. Root canal therapy may be the only way to repair your tooth if it has been badly damaged by infection.

Endodontist will usually recommend root canal treatment to:

• open up the pulp chamber
• clean out the infected remains of the pulp
• fill the pulp chamber to prevent the infection returning

Sometimes a live tooth may have insufficient tooth substance to retain a crown so the tooth may have to have root canal treatment and be restored with a post-retained crown.
