Consider Dental Bonding For A More Natural Looking Smile
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding also known as “Tooth Bonding”. This is a cosmetic dental procedure whereby a soft resin is applied to the tooth to help fix small chips or cracks. Your dentist can easily mold the shape of the resin to fit the natural shape of your tooth. Once the shape is set, a special light is applied to harden the resin in place.
Is Tooth Bonding Uncomfortable?
Fortunately, no. Bonding requires no surgery, and as far as cosmetic dental procedures go, can be one of the most comfortable procedures you’ll get while in a dentist’s chair. In order to perform the bonding procedure, all we do is roughen the tooth slightly. We then apply a conditioning solution. Then we apply a soft resin that matches the color of the tooth and shape it according to the natural shape of your tooth. Lastly, it is hardened into place using a special dental light. There is no drilling or cutting required and almost all of our patients require no anesthetic.
What Else Is Dental Bonding Used For?
In addition to fixing chips and cracks in the teeth, the tooth bonding process can be used to close any small gaps between teeth. Depending on the size of the space between teeth, the bonding procedure can be a good alternative to more expensive procedures like braces, vaneers or crowns. Bonding is a quick procedure and can be easily completed in one visit.
In some cases, tooth bonding is also used to fill cavities. Many patients prefer the bonding resin over the silver amalgam material because it can be made to match the color of the teeth, essentially making the filling invisible.
Can The Dental Bonding Process Fix Stained Teeth?
While dental bonding can, indeed, fix stained teeth, we often recommend to our patients that they consider a tooth whitening product first before comitting to a bonding procedure. A tooth whitening procedure is affordable and easy to perform.
However, for deep stains, a whitening procedure may not be enough and bonding provides a useful solution. The resin can be used to coat the tooth giving it a brighter appearance for a more confident smile. If you are interested in brightening your smile, please call our office at (352) 848-1050 to schedule an appointment where we can discuss your options with you.
Is Dental Bonding Reversible?
While many of our patients are pleased with the results that dental bonding can provide, some choose to use the bonding procedure as a temporary fix while they consider more long term cosmetic dental solutions. In those cases, since the resin only sits on top of the enamel, the bonding procedure can be reversed if you wish to change it.
How Long Does Bonding Last?
Bonding is a durable process designed to improve the look and integrity of your teeth. With routine dental checkups and proper oral hygiene, bonding can last for decades. In some cases, it will last for several years. How a patient takes care of their teeth plays a huge role in how long the bonding process will stay in tact. For example, it is important to always use a soft tooth brush and avoid eating foods that are high in acid. Good oral hygiene practices will prolong the life of your tooth bonding.
