Dental bonding is a great way to repair cosmetic and structural problems with your teeth. The bonding procedure offers you a great way to make improvements to your smile without investing a lot of time and money.
Dental bonding is a very versatile procedure that can be used to treat many of your cosmetic dental issues. It is most commonly used to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- Close spaces between teeth
- Make teeth look longer
- Change the shape of teeth
- Protect an exposed root caused by receding gums
- Replace silver amalgam fillings
Dental Bonding Procedure
The first thing your cosmetic dentist will do is choose a bonding material (made out of a composite resin) that closely matches the color of your teeth. Your tooth will then be roughened so that the resin will be able to properly bond to the surface of your tooth.
Once your tooth has been prepared for the bonding process, your dentist will apply the resin and mold it to your tooth to attain your desired cosmetic appearance. A high intensity, ultraviolet light will harden the resin. Once hardened, your dentist will polish the tooth to make it match the shine, luster, and overall appearance of adjoining teeth.
Advantages of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding provides you with an excellent alternative to many of the more complicated cosmetic dentistry procedures available, such as porcelain veneers, bridges, and crowns. The resin used in dental bonding is both flexible and durable, and it is very effective in helping prevent cracks and tooth loss.
Porcelain veneers and crowns must be created in a dental laboratory, causing you to make several trips to the dentist. Dental bonding is a much quicker and simpler procedure, and it can generally be completed within one visit to your cosmetic dentist.
- Is more affordable than many other cosmetic procedures
- Is relatively painless and can generally be performed without anesthesia
- Will last a long time
- Removes less tooth enamel than many other cosmetic procedures
