dental bondings

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material  is applied and hardened with a special light, which "bonds" the material to the tooth to restore or improve person's smile 

For What Conditions Is Dental Bonding done 

Dental bonding  can be considered:

  • To repair decayed teeth 
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • To close spaces between teeth
  • To make teeth look longer
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede

What's the Procedure for Having a Tooth Bonded?

  • Preparation. Little preparation is needed for dental bonding. 
  • The bonding process. THe surface of the tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid applied.  The tooth-colored resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape. An ultraviolet light or laser is then used to harden the material. After the material is hardened, your dentist will further trim and shape it, and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.

What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Bonding?

  Advantages: Dental bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. bonding usually can be done in one office visit unless several teeth are involved.  Also, unless dental bonding is being performed to fill a cavity, anesthesia is not required.

  • Disadvantages: Although the material used in dental bonding is somewhat stain resistant, it does not resist stains as well as crowns.
  • Consult with your dentist about the best cosmetic approach for your particular problem.
