How dental bonding is used in dentistry
- Posted on: Feb 28 2022
When you smile, are you happy with what you see in the mirror? Do you have imperfections that impact the appearance of your teeth and make you feel self-conscious? If so, you are not alone. Even a healthy smile can have areas that might not be as beautiful or as perfect as patients would like. With the help of a cosmetic dentist, many patients are able to achieve a more attractive smile. One popular treatment is composite resin dental bonding, which can provide same-day enhancement of the smile.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is best described as a treatment that uses composite resin material to rebuild a tooth or cover an imperfection on a tooth near the front of the smile. This material is made to match the existing tooth to avoid looking as though dental work was completed; our goal is always a natural result.
How long does it take for dental bonding?
While other options for disguising imperfections include porcelain veneers or dental crowns, many of these can take an extended period of time. They might require separate appointments. However, dental bonding is a treatment that can be performed in a single day to enhance the smile. The material is applied to the surface of the tooth, cured using a special light, and then filed and polished to look like natural tooth enamel. The entire process is 1 appointment and can allow patients to leave the office happy.
Why choose dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a solution for a variety of dental imperfections, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Breakage or cracks on teeth
- Permanent staining and discolouration
- Chips off of a tooth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Short teeth that need to be extended for cosmetic purposes
