Dental Bonding: How It Works

Dental Bonding: How It Works

If you are looking to replace a chipped or cracked tooth, dental bonding is one of the effective ways to restore your smile. Teeth bonding Barrie has become quite common because it is fast and relatively affordable. Dental bonding can instantly change the look of your smile. Whether the chipping or cracking was due to an injury or infection, bonding can be achieved with ease.

 

How It Is Done

Dental bonding is done by placing a white or colored composite material on your tooth. The dentist will start by working on the surface of the tooth that needs to be bonded. He/she will apply a chemical that roughens the surface of the tooth so that the bonding material can stick well. After preparation of the surface, the dentist will then go ahead and apply the composite. The composite can be a colored one or simply white depending on how natural you would like it to appear. The composite will be shaped and cured with a high-powered light so that it’s hard and durable just like your real teeth. This procedure should take a few minutes to be done.

 

When Is Dental Bonding Recommended

Your dentist may recommend dental bonding in order to cover a missing part of a tooth. If you have a chipped tooth after an accident or injury, bonding can help to restore its appearance. Sometimes dental bonding can be used when some parts of a tooth are missing due to decay. In such cases, dentists normally use tooth colored composites that blend well with the rest of the real teeth. The bonding is done to restore the tooth to its original shape, help to improve its function and general appearance. Most importantly, the dentist will recommend bonding in order to prevent the exposed section of the soft tissues from infection.

Dental Bonding As A Cosmetic Procedure

Dental Bonding As A Cosmetic Procedure

There are people who will opt for bonding mainly to improve their smile. In this case, bonding is done for cosmetic purposes only. For instance, you may have one tooth that is slightly smaller than the others and bonding can be done to make it appear bigger like the rest. The other issue occurs when you have gaps in between your teeth that you would like fixed. Most people will opt for braces to fix these gaps. However, not everyone can handle braces. Dental bonding can be used to fix gaps in between teeth too. The material is simply added to widen the teeth so that the gap can be significantly reduced. If your teeth are not even, bonding can also be done to lengthen teeth. Just discuss with your dentist what your goals are and then work towards achieving them with bonding.

 

What To Expect

Dental bonding is a simple procedure that should take about an hour to be done. This is one of those non-invasive dental treatments that don’t require the use of anesthesia. It doesn’t involve pain or long recovery times. Once the teeth have been bonded, they do not require any form of special care. You can just take care of them like your real teeth.
