Dental bonding is a relatively noninvasive procedure that can completely transform your smile for the better. Whether you have gaps between your front teeth or are experiencing cracks, chips and small fractures, bonding can cover these problems and create a seamless and uniform smile without the need for prosthetics and appliances.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin material is applied to a tooth. It is then sculpted and smoothed, then hardened and finally polished to improve the look of the tooth. The procedure is one of the easiest and least invasive cosmetic procedures available considering how trans-formative it can be to the patient’s smile. Dental bonding is matched to your existing teeth so that you cannot see where the bonding begins and where it ends. You are left with gorgeous teeth that look and feel better than they ever have before.
When is Bonding recommended?
Bonding is recommended to patients who are unhappy with their smiles in one way or another. Most patients who have bonding done have gaps between their front teeth that are unsightly and cause them to feel self-conscious about themselves. Another reason to have dental bonding done is because you have small chips and cracks in the front of your teeth. The purpose of dental bonding is to completely change the way the front of the mouth looks and to alter the shape and size of the teeth.
What is involved during the Bonding procedure?
The bonding procedure is incredibly easy and relatively noninvasive when compared to other cosmetic procedures. During the procedure, composite resin is applied to the teeth and shaped perfectly to fix any flaws or imperfections on the surface of the tooth. Once the resin has been completely shaped, it is cured using a special light that keeps it in place for years. You are then ready to leave the office and enjoy your brand-new smile. The composite resin used in the bonding procedure is similar to composite (tooth-colored) fillings, so you can expect your bonding results to last for years with proper care and maintenance.
Being able to love your smile without the need for complicated cosmetic work is easy because of the effects of dental bonding. Bonding is great for people of all ages and dental needs, and bonding can also correct a wide range of superficial flaws that are difficult to mask on your own using other appliances and prosthetics.
