How Bonding Helps with Dental Discoloration
Posted on 6/20/2018 by Kirchner Dental
Are you one of those people who is suffering from dental discoloration? If so, you have no doubt considered getting veneers. Veneers, to be sure, are a great way to improve the appearance of your smile. Still, between the expense and the fact that your teeth may need to be reshaped, many people simply are not comfortable choosing veneers. If this is you, you may want to consider dental bonding. This process is fast, easy, and considerably cheaper than veneers. What's more, it can help you get the kind of smile that you have always wanted, and you will find the whole procedure to be quick and simple. What is Dental Bonding? Simply put, dental bonding is a treatment that uses a resin to repair damaged teeth or adjust the size of teeth that need cosmetic procedures. It is frequently used in place of amalgam fillings due to the fact that it can blend in with the teeth more easily. Bonding is placed on the tooth directly over the existing material. This means that no reshaping is necessary-something that many of our patients find to be a big plus. How Can Bonding Help Discoloration? Bonding is not used only to repair damaged teeth. It can be applied over a tooth that has become severely discolored to help give it a new appearance. In the event of a tooth that does have a crack, you will discover the tooth frequently becomes discolored in that area because it may be difficult to keep the cracked area clean. In a case like that, using bonding to repair provides dual benefits: repairing the tooth, and adjusting the discoloration. If you have questions about dental bonding, please feel free to give us a call, or drop by the office. Let's talk about how you can get a newer, brighter smile....

How a Pin or Post Can Help Fix Your Teeth
Posted on 6/10/2018 by Kirchner Dental
If you had a choice, you would not want to do anything to fix your teeth. The goal of everyone is no cavities and for a perfect smile. The problem is that things happen, and teeth suffer damage. Whether it is a cavity form tooth decay or a broken, chipped or lost tooth from trauma, there are times when teeth need fixing. While people are familiar with the use of a drill and fillings to fix teeth, they may not know how a pin, or a post can solve a problem. What Is a Pin and Post? Before you can understand how a pin or post can help fix your teeth, you need to know what they are. Pins and posts are a part of a dental restoration procedure. When people do not have enough tissue or if the tissue is not strong enough, for a crown, the pin and post can provide the needed support. The pin and post come in either prefabricated or cast form. They are put into the space where the crown will go. Because there was often a root canal performed before the need of the post, the procedure does not require any anesthesia. What They Will Do The reason for a crown is to replace a tooth that was lost. If a person has lost a tooth they also can cause damage to the gums and bones. Without the support of the pin and post, the crown is more likely to fail. A person with a crown without the pin and post will notice that the crown does not feel as secure as they would like. It could lead them to changing their habits to avoid certain foods or in other ways. Because of the pin and post, people are less likely to have problems with their crowns.
