Having chipped or discolored teeth can be a source of embarrassment for many people. Luckily, cosmetic surgical procedures are available to help restore the natural appearance of your teeth.
One of these treatments is tooth bonding, which involves applying tooth-colored resins and high-intensity light to reshape, resize, and color your teeth. This procedure is called tooth bonding because it involves bonding the composite material to the surface of your teeth.
Bonding teeth can solve some dental problems:
The many advantages of composite materials outweigh the disadvantages. The most notable benefit of tooth bonding is its transparency because the tooth-colored material blends seamlessly with the teeth to give them a completely natural look.
In addition, smile makeup treatments performed with composite adhesives are much cheaper and more effective than other temporary fixes. They are also fast so that you can return to your daily life without obstacles.
The main disadvantage may be the limited lifetime of the composite material, which gives it a shelf life. However, some adhesives last five to ten years.
Bonding of teeth is carried out using two main procedures – adhesive bonding and direct composite bonding. In both methods, anesthesia is practically not required, and the patient can resume her regular daily routine right after the procedure.
Aesthetic Dental and its specialist will select treatment methods based on patients’ needs.
During the procedure, the Aesthetic Dental dentist uses tooth-colored resins to restore the damaged teeth’ appearance. The composite material is applied directly to the surface of the teeth and is used to augment the tooth for enhancement. Direct composite bonding is commonly used to fill cavities, close gaps, repair cracked teeth, and build up tooth structure to improve appearance.
On the other hand, adhesive bonding is the process of attaching a restorative material to a tooth. This technique is commonly used for procedures such as inlays and onlays, bridges, crowns, and porcelain veneers.
Teeth bonding is a relatively simple procedure supporting dental health and addressing various cosmetic and restorative issues. Dental bonding is an economical and convenient treatment option for patients of all ages.
Aesthetic Dental provides dental restoration services. Often recommended for younger patients with damaged teeth or cosmetic problems, bonding teeth can also be effective.
Bonding teeth may be a more cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers for children, adolescents, and adults wanting to “try out” a new look before switching to veneers. Dental bonding involves placing a composite resin material on a lightly etched tooth surface. Designed for a natural appearance and comfortable bite, the resin material matches the color of the patient’s teeth or complements the look.
The process of bonding teeth is similar to placing a dental filling. The doctor will begin by cleaning and numbing the area to be treated. Once you feel comfortable, your dentist will prepare the surface of your tooth by gently etching the enamel. This is to ensure that the resin material adheres firmly to the tooth.
The next step is carefully fitting the material into place, creating the desired look, and ensuring a stable and comfortable bite.
After the process, the material is hardened using a special light source. After polishing the surface, your smile is ready, and you can resume your daily routine. Good daily oral hygiene and regular dental care will ensure long-term results.
Bonding teeth offer a quick, affordable, and effective solution compared to many other smile transformation procedures. Typically, procedures can be completed in one visit, and you won’t have to miss much work.
The best way to approach bonding teeth is through proper consultation. The Aesthetic Dental dentist will analyze the patient’s problems with teeth and suggest a smile treatment based on this analysis.
