If you have a damaged tooth or a gap between your teeth, our dentist will most likely propose dental bonding. Dental bonding is a treatment in which a resin material is put to the teeth to improve the appearance of cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth, as well as those with gaps between them. Dental bonding can be used to repair tooth flaws at Bell Dental Care. It is one of the least invasive dental procedures for repairing your teeth and smile accessible today.
Bonding is the process of applying composite resin to the surface of a tooth to restore it. It's a straightforward, low-cost cosmetic dentistry procedure that may usually be finished in only one visit. Tooth bonding is most commonly used to restore chipped or discolored teeth. Bonding can also be used to fill big gaps between teeth, alter tooth shape, or make teeth appear longer. Bonding may be used in place of amalgam or metallic fillings in some circumstances to protect the exposed root of a tooth with receding gums.
Our dentist will first apply a little phosphoric acid to the surface of your teeth, which etches and roughens the surface to help the bonding material stay in place. This procedure isn't harmful. The putty-like bonding material is then applied to the tooth's surface, molded, and sculpted. A specific light is utilized to help the substance harden and solidify. Finally, the composite is polished and buffed to achieve a flawless finish.
The primary benefit of dental bonding is its low cost. It is one of the most cost-effective and simple dental procedures available. It can be done in a single visit and does not require any special fitting. This implies you won't need to wear a temporary mold because there will be no custom-made goods built particularly for you. Any necessary shaping or molding is accomplished at the time the teeth are bonded.
It is also a process that removes the least amount of enamel from your teeth when compared to veneers or crowns. The enamel is a strong outer covering on your teeth that protects them from tooth disease, making it an important element of your oral health.
Furthermore, unless a cavity is being filled, dental bonding is usually painless and does not require any anesthetic.
