It's a Wonderful Choice for Patients Looking for a Long-Term Solution in Comparison to Other Procedures.
What’s Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a special type of cosmetic procedure that can enhance and even perfect your smile. Composite is used to reshape affected teeth that are discolored, stained, chipped or cracked. Bonding is durable, typically lasting for roughly 10 years. After this time, the bonding material can be replaced and reapplied as needed.
Why Is Dental Bonding Needed?
The bonding procedure is done quickly in-office and provides you with a smile that you can feel confident in showing. Most people who want bonding will benefit from what it can do for them. Some reasons to consider bonding include:
• Your front teeth are stained or discolored
• You have gaps and larger spaces between front teeth
• Your teeth look uneven and unsightly
• You have chipped, cracked or broken a front tooth
What Makes You a Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Bonding normally does not require any anesthesia, so it’s ideal for patients who are sensitive to sedation. The bonding material is matched precisely to the rest of your teeth, allowing for the restoration to look as natural as possible. Your new bonding can last for up to 10 years. This makes it a wonderful choice for patients looking for a long-term solution in comparison to other procedures.
What Can Be Expected During Dental Bonding?
Dr. Nicolette will first prepare the front tooth or teeth for the bonding material. This is done by both cleaning and drying the tooth as well as applying a specialized gel to the area to promote more secure adhesion. The composite material is applied to the tooth and carefully detailed to look and feel like your natural tooth. Once the bonding has been detailed into place, it’s cured so that it hardens and becomes permanent. After the bonding is complete, you won’t need to worry or fuss with it and can treat it like any other tooth.
