Dental Bonding - Cosmetic Dentistry

Sometimes the simple solution is the best solution. With dental bonding you can avoid the extensive dental work and get your smile back to looking beautiful. Dental bonding is generally used for teeth that have gaps, staining, cracking/chipping or decaying. When the treatment is completed, your teeth will look and act just like the rest of your teeth.

Dental Bonding Procedure

Dental bonding is usually completed in one visit. The first step in bonding is to remove the decayed or unappealing portion of the tooth. Once this is removed, the tooth is etched using a simple solution. A composite resin is then applied in thin layers and dried with a special light until the desired look is obtained.

Dental Bonding Advantages

Dental bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. Unlike veneers and crowns, which are customized tooth coverings that must be manufactured in a laboratory, bonding usually can be done in one office visit unless several teeth are involved. Another advantage, compared with veneers and crowns, is that the least amount of tooth enamel is removed. Also, unless dental bonding is being performed to fill a cavity, anesthesia is usually not required.

Dental Bonding Disadvantages

Although the material used in dental bonding is somewhat stain resistant, it does not resist stains as well as crowns. Another disadvantage is that the bonding materials do not last as long nor are as strong as other restorative procedures, such as crowns, veneers, or fillings. Additionally, bonding materials can chip and break off the tooth.

Bonding is generally viewed by dentists as best suited for small cosmetic changes.
