What Is Dental Bonding?

Posted by Winning Smiles Dentistry on Apr 1 2022, 10:03 AM

Dental bonding is a procedure that involves bonding a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth. This method is used to repair teeth, alter their shape, or close gaps between them. Get yours right away from Dr. Darian D.D.S.

What Exactly Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a technique of restoring or improving a person's smile. It is one of the simplest and cheapest cosmetic dental procedures. Other tooth coverings are veneers and crowns. These coverings would need to be applied by your dentist. 

No more than one tooth needs to be fixed when bonding. Unlike veneers and crowns, less tooth enamel is removed. (Enamel is the tooth's hard surface layer.) Anesthesia is not usually required unless dental bonding is used to fill a cavity. 

Dental bonding can be used for many purposes like:

  • Restore decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • Teeth that have been chipped or cracked should be repaired
  • Improve the look of discolored teeth
  • Teeth with small gaps
  • Make your teeth appear longer
  • Alter the shape of your teeth
  • Replace amalgam (silver) fillings with a cosmetic alternative
  • Safeguard the portion of the tooth's root that has become exposed as the gums recede

Special Care Required for Dental Bonding?

If you take good care of your teeth, you can extend the life of a bonded tooth. Here's how you can secure your dental bonding:

  • Brushing teeth after breakfast and before going to bed daily
  • Flossing every day
  • Avoiding hard foods that can cause the material to chip
  • Tobacco and coffee should be avoided for three to four days following the procedure.
  • Get a professional cleaning every six months.

Bonded Teeth's Lifespan

The longevity of dental bonding depends on the amount of bonding placed and your oral habits. It is important to note that bonded teeth are not as strong as natural teeth. If you bite hard, the bonding material may come off. You will need to replace your bonding material sooner if you smoke or drink a lot of dark beverages like coffee or red wine. The bonding material needs to be touched up or replaced after three to ten years.
