Dental bonding involves an application of a tooth-colored resin to repair a tooth that has suffered damage for some reason. This composite resin can be shaped and molded to be used for a great number of different reasons.
Dental bonding can be used to repair a decayed, fractured, chipped, and even a discolored tooth. Unlike a dental veneer, dental bonding can be done in a single visit, and it can be used for essentially the same dental issues.
Bonding is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to cosmetically improve your teeth. The composite resin is shaped however it needs to be to repair your tooth. It can also be colored to match the natural color of your teeth exactly. It can be applied to teeth to close spaces between teeth, cover over stains on teeth, rebuild a chipped tooth, and many more things.
Dental bonding can also be used as a more attractive alternative to typical amalgam fillings. These are the silver colored fillings you’ll see in many children’s mouths. The bonding material can also be applied to a portion of a tooth’s root that has been exposed to protect it.
There is generally no preparation needed for dental bonding, and the procedure can be completed without any anesthesia. The only time anesthesia would be necessary is when bonding is used to fill a painful decayed tooth.
Your dentist will use a composite resin color that matches your tooth as closely as possible. Once the color is chosen, the dentist will slightly roughen the tooth surface to make it easier to apply the bonding material. The resin will then be applied and shaped into the desired way, and then hardened.
