Dental Bondings for Receding Gums
Here at Westgrove Dental Care, your dentist in Garden Grove, CA we provide dental bondings for abfractions caused by receding gums. Dental bonding for abfraction is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the teeth to restore their shape and function. Abfraction is a type of dental wear that occurs at the gum line due to excessive force and pressure on the teeth. It can cause notching or erosion of the tooth enamel, which can lead to tooth sensitivity and other problems.
During a dental bonding procedure, the dentist will first clean the affected teeth and apply a special conditioning solution to help the bonding material adhere to the tooth surface. The resin material is then applied to the tooth and shaped to match the natural contour of the tooth. A special light is used to harden the material, and then it is polished to a smooth finish.
Dental bonding for abfractions and receding gums can help restore the function and appearance of the affected teeth and also protect them from further damage. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically does not require any anesthesia. However, the results are not as durable as other restorative options, such as dental crowns or veneers, and may need to be replaced over time.
Overall, dental bonding for abfractions is a simple and effective treatment option that can help improve the health and appearance of teeth affected by this type of dental wear. Consult with Dr. Brandon and Dr. Iris at Westgrove Dental Care regarding your options for treatment today!
