Dental bonding is one of these treatments. The procedure is non-invasive, fast and most of all, inexpensive. It can repair minor issues affecting your front teeth. Additionally, the procedure, which involves bonding restorative materials to dental enamel, revolutionises the ability of your dentist to prevent cavities and improve the overall visage of your smile.
Good Candidates for Dental Bonding
You may be a good candidate for dental bonding if you have minor aesthetic flaws on your front teeth. If your teeth and gums are generally healthy and you don’t smoke, then this cosmetic treatment is for you.
Minor cosmetic imperfections include yellow, stained, chipped, cracked, gapped and misaligned teeth. Beyond these issues, you may require more extensive procedures such as porcelain veneers.
In addition, patients who have completed their orthodontic treatment may need to undergo dental bonding afterwards. Dental bonding further enhances the results of braces and can mask any dental staining caused by the braces.
The Procedure for Dental Bonding
As we have mentioned before the process of the dental bonding treatment is non-invasive, which means no terrifying drill or needles involved. Your dentist will take 30 to 60 minutes to complete the entire process. It is often painless so your dentist will perform the procedure without local anaesthesia or sedation dentistry. Nevertheless, if the bonding will be used for tooth filling, then your dentist may use such techniques.
The first part of treatment involves preparation of your tooth for bonding. Your dentist uses a shade guide to closely match the natural shade of your teeth. Then, your tooth will be slightly roughened followed by the application of conditioning material to help the composite resin securely adhere to the tooth.
On the last part, your dentist uses an ultraviolet light to harden the resin, other practices use laser dentistry on this stage. Once the resin has hardened, the next step involves trimming and shaping of your tooth as needed. For the final touch, your dentist will polish your treated teeth a bit to make sure that the lustre of your bonded tooth is similar with the rest of your natural teeth.
Taking Care of your Bonded Teeth
A bonded tooth doesn’t require any special care afterwards. Your bonded tooth is reinforced with the composite resin, which means it has regained its durability and restored functionality. Good oral hygiene is what you all need to preserve your teeth – treated or not. With good dental care habits, regular dental visits, healthy diet and lifestyle, your bonded teeth are bound to last.
