Understanding the Benefits of Dental Bonding
posted: Jan. 24, 2021.
Dental bonding, also known as tooth bonding, is a cost-effective solution for correcting minor dental blemishes and flaws. The treatment involves applying tooth-colored composite resin on damaged teeth to repair them. Your cosmetic dentist can recommend dental bonding if you have minorly damaged, misshapen, or discolored teeth. At Southshore Dental in Wyandotte, we provide cost-effective dental bonding to help clients achieve their smile goals.
How Dental Bonding Works
During the treatment process, a dentist makes use of tooth-colored resin, which is carefully applied to the damaged areas of the teeth and then reshaped to match the natural teeth structure. After this, the dental resin is hardened using a special light to secure the bonding.
Before starting the bonding process, your cosmetic dentist will carefully select the dental resin that matches the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Next, the surface of the teeth is prepared using a roughing gel so that the bonding agent sticks properly on it. After applying the bonding agent, the composite resin is added and shaped into the desired form. Once hardened, it is buffed and polished to produce a natural, beautiful smile.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
A benefit of dental bonding is that it is one of the most cost-effective alternatives compared to other cosmetic dental procedures. Dental bonding provides a solution for treating multiple dental concerns, including:
Repair cracked, chipped, or fractured teeth
Eliminate discoloration and stains
Cover up minor gaps or spacing between teeth
Help create uniform appearance by reshaping the teeth
Unlike veneers and dental crowns, dental bonding is a quick and less expensive procedure to improve your smile without the need for removing the natural structure of the teeth. Due to its flexible bonding agent, dental bonding can be applied or removed without causing additional damage to the teeth enamel.
