Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin is applied to your teeth.
What Is Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure in which a tooth-colored resin, is applied to the surface of a tooth to improve its appearance.
A special light is used to cure the resin once it has been shaped and sculpted to fit the patient’s teeth.
The end result is stronger, more attractive, and more realistic teeth. It is frequently used to repair small cracks, fissures, or gaps in teeth as well as to improve the appearance of damaged or discolored teeth. It can also be used to change the appearance of a tooth, such as lengthening a tooth or closing small gaps between teeth. This procedure is generally, considered a non-invasive and cost-effective option for cosmetic dental work, and the procedure is usually completed in one appointment with the dentist.
When Do I Need
Dental bonding is usually recommended in the following cases:
- Chipped or fractured tooth: If a tooth has a small chip or crack, it can be used to repair and restore its appearance.
- Discolored or stained teeth: If a tooth is discolored or stained, bonding can be used to cover up the discoloration and improve the tooth’s appearance.
- Interdental gap: In the event that there is a small gap between the teeth, bonding can be used to fill in the gap and improve the appearance of the smile.
- Dental deformity: If the tooth is deformed or has an irregular shape, then bonding can be used to change its shape and improve its appearance.
- Exposed Roots: If the roots of the tooth are exposed, bonding can be used to cover the roots and protect them from further damage.
Overall, It is a great option for patients, who want to improve the appearance of their teeth and smile without undergoing more cosmetic or expensive dental procedures.
Result Of Bonding
A restored and improved tooth that appears and works like a natural tooth is frequently the end result of dental bonding.
A smooth and natural-looking outcome is achieved by matching the colour of the bonded resin material to that of the neighbouring teeth and shaping it to the appropriate form.
The bonded tooth ought to be less sensitive and capable of biting and chewing properly after the treatment.
To keep the bonded tooth and the adjacent teeth and gums healthy, it’s crucial to continue practicing basic oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing.
Most of the time, dental bonding is a durable treatment for repairing and enhancing, the look of stained or broken teeth.
When taken care of properly with frequent dental checkups and cleanings, it can last for several years.
