Sometimes you don’t need an entire dental crown or veneer to address chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. Dental bonding is a fantastic alternative for small cosmetic or restorative dentistry treatment. Bonding is less expensive, takes less time, and doesn’t cost as much as other treatments.
Why Do I Need Dental Bonding?
If you have any of the following dental issues, please consider dental bonding as a viable solution:
- Misshapen teeth.
- Chipped or cracked teeth.
- Decayed tooth (teeth).
- Spaces between teeth.
- Discolored teeth.
- “Short” teeth.
- Exposed tooth root.
How Does Dental Bonding Work?
The dental bonding procedure is surprisingly comfortable. Often no anesthetic is needed at all. First, the surface or area of the tooth will be prepared. This involves cleaning and, depending on the tooth, a slight removal of the affected area.
The area is then roughened and a conditioner is applied to help create the strongest bond between your tooth and the dental bonding. Next, we apply the putty like dental bonding material and mold it to the desired shape.
We then shine an ultraviolet light over the material to harden the bonding. Finally, we finish with touch ups to the set-up dental bonding to ensure the most natural looking and functioning final result possible.
That’s it! Though dental bonding treatments are not quite as strong and durable as other restorative dentistry procedures, like dental veneers or crowns, they are still a great solution for minimal dental issues.
Quick and Affordable Dental Bonding
You will also love the affordability dental bonding! The treatment can be performed in one visit to our office in as little as 30 to 60 minutes, whereas veneers or crowns must often be created in a special dental lab, which increases the treatment time and cost.
