Dental Bonding

Who Is A Candidate For Dental Bonding

What is Dental Bonding?

Bonding is a type of cosmetic procedure that can enhance and correct the front of your smile. Tooth-colored composite resin is used to fill in areas that are cracked, chipped, or unevenly spaced. Bonding is easy to care for, and can last for about 10 years before we’ll recommend replacement. The procedure itself is noninvasive, with many patients needing little to no anesthetic.

Why is Dental Bonding needed?

You may want or need dental bonding because you’re currently unhappy with the way that your smile looks. If you are looking for a quick and effective way to correct minor imperfections without completely covering the tooth with a crown, then bonding is a great option to consider. Some of the problems that bonding can cover include:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that are smaller than is normal

Who is a candidate for Dental Bonding?

Bonding is useful on otherwise healthy adult teeth. If the tooth has decay, we will recommend having a filling placed before any bonding work is done. We can examine your teeth to determine if bonding is right for you. Because the composite resin is matched perfectly to your smile, it’ll blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, and will not look out of place.

What happens during the procedure for Dental Bonding?

We first apply a bonding gel agent to the tooth. This gel is allowed to sit for a short period of time and then is washed away. After being matched to your tooth’s color, the composite resin is carefully applied to the area. The material is cured with a bright light so that it doesn’t move or shift out of place. We will adjust the look of the bonding so that it feels no different than your real teeth. The procedure isn’t just quick, it’s entirely effective at improving the look of your smile and getting rid of problem areas towards the front of the mouth.

Amin Salvi Dental
Is Now Open!

The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have missed seeing you, chatting with you, sharing stories with you and laughing with you. We are SO excited to finally be able to invite you back to our office!

As you already know, Amin Salvi Dental does not cut corners on safety and technology. We have always prided ourselves in exceeding the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for infection control measures. During this closure, we decided to go above and beyond that by adding further safety measures, which have been outlined below. The comfort and safety of our patients, of our team members, and of our own families remain our top priority.

  • All essential paperwork (including a COVID-19 screening form) along with financial agreements are to be done prior to your appointment. We will be texting and emailing the links for the forms to be filled out at home or on your mobile device. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or feel ill, please reschedule your appointment and call your physician.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car and text or call the office. We will inform you when to enter the office so we can maintain social distancing protocols
  • When entering the office, it is mandatory to wear a mask or face covering. Although county guidelines are not as strict, we maintain this requirement for the safety of everyone. Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we cannot provide masks. Should you require one, we will charge you $1 for the mask.
  • Patients must arrive to their appointment alone without family/friends. A single guardian will be allowed for minors, elderly and those with special needs or requirements.
  • We will be taking your temperature when arriving to our office and recording this in your records.

Here are a few additional things we are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  • We have installed air purification systems in the main operatories
  • We have installed sneeze guards at the check-in and check-out areas. We request that when you are required to talk to the front desk administration, you stand behind those.
  • Before appointments, we will use a medical peroxide pre-rinse which has been proven to help kill virus particles

We will have new scheduling guidelines

You will be hearing from us shortly as we are rescheduling routine hygiene and treatment for everyone. As you can imagine, we have a large backlog of cancelled appointments so we appreciate your patience through this process.

If you have any immediate concerns, we request not to call the office but text us at the office number or email us at office.corona@aminsalvidental.com.

Due to the new protocols for physical distancing in the office, we may have limited availability of appointments. Due to this we require a minimum 48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. This allows other patients, who have been waiting, to be seen. Please be courteous to others.

For many procedures we will also be requiring a reservation fee in advance. This fee will be applied to your deductible or co-pay for the treatment and is not an additional fee of any kind.

We look forward to seeing all of you and catching up on the activities you have been doing to keep busy during this downtime!
