Is Dental Bonding Right for You?
Bonding can be a highly effective way to conceal a diverse range of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Small cracks that do not weaken your teeth
- Small chips
- Worn or uneven edges
- Intrinsic stains and other discoloration that cannot be addressed with teeth whitening treatments
- Gaps between teeth
- Slight misalignment
Porcelain veneers are another option to address these blemishes. However, veneers require some preparatory work, including the removal of a small layer of enamel. Therefore, if you have sustained enamel erosion, you may be a better candidate for bonding. Bonding may also be more appropriate if your teeth have been weakened by cavities or you have dental fillings.
Dental Bonding Procedure
Before bonding, your dentist will conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment. He or she will plan a personalized procedure, considering the color of the composite, as well as the right application of the material. There are many shades of composite available, so your practitioner can easily find one that blends beautifully with your smile.
Bonding can be a highly effective way to conceal a diverse range of cosmetic concerns.
To begin treatment, your dentist will treat your teeth with a liquid etching solution. This gentle chemical will lightly roughen the surface of the tooth and allow for a stronger bond. After applying this solution, your dentist will then apply the composite, filling in chips and covering any visible blemishes. Throughout the process, your dentist will sculpt the material to provide a natural shape and size. Using a curing light, he or she will harden the composite. Finally, your practitioner will polish your teeth so that the composite matches the natural luster of your dental enamel.
