If you have cracked, chipped, or discoloured teeth, you may benefit from dental bonding.
Dental bonding is an excellent way to improve your smile. It’s a more conservative and less invasive cosmetic option than veneers or crowns, as it only requires minimal alteration to the original tooth structure.
In less than an hour, dental bonding can create a dramatic result on your teeth. When placed correctly, dental bonding can give you a long-lasting healthy smile.
Uses of Dental Bonding
Your dentist may recommend dental bonding in the following cases:
- To protect the exposed roots of teeth
- Repair cracks and chips that developed on teeth
- Reshaped misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth
- Treat and improve discoloured teeth
- An alternative for amalgam fillings
- Treat teeth that have been affected by receding gums
Dental bonding is ideal for patients who want to restore the beauty of their teeth. On the other hand, if a tooth has sustained extensive damage or if you want to achieve a more dramatic change in the shape or colour of your teeth, then Warner Lakes Dental can suggest other options that will better suit your case and preferences.
Dental Bonding Procedure
It only takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete the bonding procedure. Most of the time, no anaesthesia is needed unless there is a need for the dentist to fill a decayed tooth, as well.
The dentist will first prepare the tooth. Using a shade guide, the dentist will determine the colour of composite resin that closely matches the shade of your existing teeth.
The tooth is slightly roughened and a conditioning material is applied. This is important so that the resin can adhere properly to the prepared tooth. The resin will then be hardened using a special blue, or dental, laser.
As soon as the resin has hardened, the dentist will trim the tooth if necessary. The bonded tooth will be polished to match the natural lustre of your original teeth.
