Is Dental Bonding a Procedure That Could Benefit Your Smile?
Posted on 1/15/2020 by Office
Dental bonding is a material made out of highly durable resin. The resin can come in many different shades to match a person's teeth so it's unlikely it will ever be noticed.
Its main application is for fixing minor cavities; however, many dentists use dental bonding for other purposes. One of those purposes is to fix broken or chipped teeth.
If you have a chipped or broken tooth, dental bonding may be the right option to restore your smile back to normal. What makes dental bonding an ideal material for fixing broken teeth is its ability to be shaped. Chipped and broken teeth are different for everyone. Some chips are large, and some are small, which means dental bonding is great at creating a natural looking smile while still being affordable.
Another reason to choose dental bonding is because it helps a person suffering from a chipped tooth maintain proper dental hygiene. Chipped and broken teeth are not only painful, but also, they are harder to clean properly. This is because chipped teeth have many small crevices that a toothbrush usually can't reach. Maintaining proper dental hygiene will ensure your smile stays beautiful.
How It Works The process of dental bonding is simple. Compared to other dental procedures, dental bonding is painless and quick. To apply dental bonding, a dentist will match your specific tooth color to a dental bonding material. Then, the dentist will apply an adhesion promoter to the tooth. Next, the dentist will place the dental bonding on the tooth and shape it. Finally, a special light is used to harden the dental bonding material.
