Dental bonding is an effective solution for restoring chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned teeth, offering an alternative to veneers. Our skilled dentists prepare the tooth by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Next, they apply and sculpt a plastic resin into the desired shape, which is then trimmed, smoothed, and polished for a natural appearance. Dental bonding can significantly improve the look of a tooth in just one office visit. However, as the resin isn't as strong as natural tooth enamel, it may be more prone to staining, chipping, or breaking and typically lasts three to five years before requiring repair.
Chinatown Family Dental is dedicated to maintaining your healthy smile through comprehensive routine exams. During your visit, we will update your medical and dental history, perform an oral cancer screening, and assess your teeth and soft tissues. Our professional dental cleanings remove any calculus missed during daily brushing and flossing, while our team evaluates your dental care methods and provides personalized suggestions for future care. Typically scheduled every six months, these exams help prevent gum disease and detect problems early for quick and easy resolution. Trust our expert team to keep your smile bright and healthy.
Root canal therapy is a widely performed procedure designed to save natural teeth and prevent the need for implants or bridges. Our experienced team effectively treats pulp infections resulting from trauma, decay, or other dental issues. Utilizing local anesthesia, we ensure your comfort throughout the treatment, which typically boasts a 90% success rate. Root canals offer a more affordable solution compared to tooth removal and replacement, and maintaining good dental hygiene afterward is crucial for long-lasting results.
