As we all know, damaged teeth can affect our external appearance and inner confidence. People often try to hide their smiles or tend not to talk much if they have a chipped, cracked tooth. Don’t worry. Tooth damages are not at all a problem now, thanks to the dental bonding procedure.
What is Dental Bonding?
It is a cosmetic dentistry treatment in which a natural-looking tooth-colored composite resin is applied to your teeth, thus repairing teeth damages.
During the consultation, the dentist will choose the composite resin material, which matches the color of your teeth. Then the tooth surface is roughened. After that, a bonding agent, usually in liquid form, is applied over which the composite resin is applied. Finally, the bonding between teeth and the resin is hardened using ultraviolet light. The tooth bonding procedure will take around 30 to 60 mins to complete depending on your oral health.
There are many reasons why dental bonding is the most popular dental treatment available today. It is one of the fastest and less complicated tooth repair procedures, requiring only a single appointment. It is also completely painless, so no anesthesia is needed. Here there is only a little or no enamel removal. Thus the bonding procedure won’t affect the health of your teeth.
Dental bonding is a comparatively less extensive procedure, unlike other dental cosmetic treatments such as dental crowns.
Dental bonding can last between 4 to 8 years, depending on the area it is done and your eating practices. Taking good care of oral hygiene and avoiding biting hard foods can help increase the longevity of the dental bonding structure.
