Teeth Bonding Teeth bonding can be used to treat a variety of dental problems. People with teeth that are chipped, crooked, cracked, stained and gapped can all benefit from bonding and this sort of treatment is sometimes even used to repair teeth that have been damaged due to decay. In the past few years bonding has also become a popular alternative to silver amalgam fillings, which most people consider to be ugly and out of date. The actual procedure involves having an etching solution applied to the teeth that creates slight grooves in them that facilitates the application of resin layers. Composite resin is applied in coats and each coat is hardened immediately with a high-intensity light. Layers of resin are applied until a desired thickness is reached and then the teeth are sculpted and polished. There are two types of bonding available and the severity of each patient

Yes they do and they are "caps" (crowns are for the molars.) I just spent $12,000 on my teeth and had the front ones capped as well as the bottom front and the rest bonded. You can't tell they aren't your real teeth. Remember, even though the teeth are capped you have to go in for dental check-ups because you can still get cavities.

Do teeth expanders hurt?

Expander pain may vary depending on weather or not you have a bonded or a removable. Removable expanders can hurt when you have to "activate" them in the morning. It adds pressure, but after 3 weeks or so you should be used to it. Bonded expanders hurt ALOT on the first day you get it. Since it required no "activations" the pressure is constantly the same. Bonded expanders are best for making permanent results. But they both work.

If your teeth are not really bad and you only need a couple of them straightened a little how much would that cost?

You need to talk to your dentist and you may get lucky and the dentist will "bond" the teeth. It almost looks like a cap and you can't tell it's not real. Also gaps in teeth can be fixed this way and it's less expensive. My bottom 6 teeth in the front were uneven and my dentist bonded them and they look straight and natural.

What is the molecular shape of C3H4?

Think of this as H2C3H2 or HC3H3 As carbon is tetravalent and hydrogen is monovalent there must be either two hydrogens bonded to a carbon that is double bonded to another that is double bonded to the third which has the remaining hydrogens double bonded. Otherwise this must be a hydrogen bonded to a carbon that is triple bonded to another carbon which is single bonded to the third carbon which is bound to three hydrogens.

Can the teeth in a Valplast partial break or break out?

break out The teeth (usually made from acrylic) are bonded to the partial using mechanical interlocks. When properly fabricated, the bond is extremely strong. But in some cases the teeth themselves might crack or weaken and can then separate. In those cases, a dentist can send the partial to a qualified dental lab to have the tooth reattached or replaced.
