What is teeth bonding?
Teeth bonding, also known as dental bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the surface of a tooth and bonding it in place using a special curing light. It is a non-invasive and cost-effective solution for improving the appearance of teeth.
Teeth bonding can address various dental concerns, including:
Dental Chips and Cracks: Bonding can repair small chips and cracks in the teeth, restoring their shape and function.
Tooth Discoloration: Teeth bonding can be used to cover up stains and discoloration that cannot be effectively treated with teeth whitening procedures.
Tooth Gaps: If you have small gaps between your teeth, bonding material can be applied to close the spaces, giving you a more uniform smile.
Tooth Reshaping: Bonding can be used to reshape uneven or misaligned teeth, providing a more harmonious appearance.
Tooth Decay: In some cases, bonding can be a conservative alternative to traditional dental fillings to treat minor cavities.
The teeth bonding process
The teeth bonding process typically requires minimal preparation, and the dentist usually does not need to use anesthesia unless filling a cavity. The dentist will carefully select a shade of composite resin that matches the natural color of your teeth. The dentist then roughens the tooth surface and applies a conditioning liquid to ensure proper adhesion of the bonding material
Next, the dentist will apply the pliable resin material to the tooth, molding and shaping it to achieve the desired result. Once in place, the dentist hardens the material using a curing light. After that, the dentist further shapes and polishes it to seamlessly blend with the surrounding teeth.
Teeth bonding is a relatively quick and straightforward procedure usually completed in a single dental visit. With proper care and maintenance, bonded teeth can last several years before requiring touch-ups or replacements.
Teeth bonding is a cosmetic solution that may not be as durable or long-lasting as dental veneers or crowns. Consulting with a dentist will help determine if teeth bonding is the right option for your specific dental concerns.
Modern dentistry offers bonding techniques using tooth-colored composites and resins, enabling teeth to match in color, symmetry, and natural appearance.
At Edgemont Dentist, we can perform composite bonding in a single visit, enhancing your smile immediately. Additionally, minimal tooth reduction is usually necessary in most cases.
