In this post, we’ll discuss some of the ways you can address these concerns. For many patients, these issues are first noticed by a dentist who is trained to recognize changes in oral health, including over and underproduction of saliva. During your general dentistry appointments twice a year, let your dentist know if you’re struggling with excessive drooling or dry mouth. In many cases, these issues need to be addressed by neurologists and other medical doctors, but a dentist will be able to give you more information about whether or not you should be seriously concerned about saliva overproduction.

The truth is, there are many differences between receiving care at home or at our office. Over-the-counter methods are popping up everywhere for people to take advantage of, the only problem is results may not be as great with regular brand treatment. Bright, white teeth can grab anyone’s attention, but if you’re not using the correct treatment, it’s a waste. When you come to our office in Toledo, OH, we can provide you with excellent in-office whitening treatment that can make your smile brighter and whiter than ever before. Perrysburg residents are in for a treat when they choose to see us for whitening treatment.

523877123Minor cosmetic imperfections can have a big impact on the appearance of your smile. Even the healthiest smiles can sustain chips, cracks, discoloration, and decay. If you have tiny defects that keep you from smiling confidently, you should consider the cosmetic bonding solution. Cosmetic bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry option because it can repair teeth with little, if any, effect on the natural enamel and dentin. Cosmetically bonded teeth look and feel just like natural teeth too. If you’re ready to renew your smile, schedule a cosmetic bonding appointment with Dr. Thomas, Dr. Poole, or Dr. Weisenburger at Dental Group West today. Dental Group West is a trusted cosmetic dentistry, now proudly repairing smiles daily throughout Toledo, OH, Bowling Green, Sylvania, Oregon, Perrysburg, and the surrounding communities.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding consists of special tooth colored resin, expertly applied to a damaged tooth, and then hardened with a special curing light. Bonding materials are made from high-density modern plastics like composite resin and porcelain. These materials mimic the natural color of your teeth and can be designed to perfectly match the surrounding teeth, making it almost impossible to discern that a tooth was ever damaged at all.

Can Cosmetic Bonding Fix Your Smile?

Cosmetic bonding can be used in several different ways, including:

  • Repair of decayed teeth
  • Repair of chipped or cracked teeth
  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Elongate shortened teeth
  • Improve the appearance of misshapen teeth
  • Protect tooth roots exposed by receding gums

Toledo Cosmetic Bonding Appointments

Cosmetic bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive of all cosmetic dentistry procedures. Unlike porcelain veneers and dental crowns, cosmetic bonding can be completed in just one visit without any anesthesia required.
