Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve person’s smile.
Unlike veneers and crowns, which are customized tooth coverings that must be manufactured in a laboratory, bonding usually can be done in one office visit unless several teeth are involved. Another advantage, compared with veneers and crowns, is that the least amount of tooth enamel is removed. Also, unless dental bonding is being performed to fill a cavity, anesthesia is usually not required.
Why Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding treatment is one of the most effective methods to achieve damaged teeth restoration or to gain the desired smile in the shortest of time.
What is a Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a process that bonds a tooth coloured resin to the teeth to mask imperfections such as gaps between the teeth, teeth discolorations, to change teeth appearances so to align them with others or to protect a root after its been exposed by receding gums disease.
Dental bonding which is a simple and fast procedure that is often completed within the clinic during a single visit can also be used as a filling. Dental bonding, the creation of a perfect smile, takes between 30 to 60 minutes per tooth and unless the bonding is used for cavity filling no local anaesthesia is needed.
