Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that helps you improve the appearance of your teeth by fixing chipped teeth, cracked teeth, misshapen teeth, small teeth, and discoloration. This procedure utilizes tooth-colored filling material to improve the appearance of the teeth.
WHEN IS DENTAL BONDING RECOMMENDED?
Dental bonding is appropriate for a wide variety of dental concerns, including:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Worn-out teeth
- Worn down edges
- Gaps between teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Misshapen teeth
HOW IS DENTAL BONDING PERFORMED?
Dental bonding is an easy, quick, and painless procedure that can be performed within one dental visit. The first step involves removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth to be treated. The tooth is then prepared for the application of the bonding material. The dentist then applies a layer of composite resin to the tooth, and it will be hardened using a special light. This layer is then polished untill it blends well with the natural tooth surface.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL BONDING?
There are numerous benefits to dental bonding:
- It is an effective way to repair broken or chipped teeth.
- It improves the appearance of the smile by restoring misshapen or chipped teeth and filling in gaps between them.
- It can fix discolored or stained teeth by changing their color to match that of the natural teeth.
- It provides a natural-looking result.
- It can be performed in just one dental visit, which makes it an ideal procedure for patients on a tight schedule.
WHAT ARE THE MERITS OF COMPOSITE RESIN?
Composite resin is a tooth-colored material that resembles the natural enamel of your tooth. It offers various benefits over other materials used for dental bonding, such as:
- It is durable and long-lasting.
- It can be customized to match various shades with your natural teeth.
- It bonds well with both enamel and dentin, resulting in a strong bond.
- It does not erode easily.
