Dental bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin with the use of adhesives and curing light to ultimately bond the material to the tooth. Dental Bonding is used for cosmetic purposes that will enhance the appearance of discolored or chipped teeth. Also, it is used to close spaces between teeth, either to make the teeth look longer or to change the shape and color of the teeth. Dental Bonding is often used as a cosmetic alternative for amalgam fillings — or known as silver fillings.

Dental bondings are considered to fix dental issues like:

  • Repair of the decayed tooth.
  • Repairing chipped or cracked teeth.
  • Improving the appearance of discolored teeth.
  • Closing the spaces between teeth.
  • Making the teeth look longer.
  • Changing the teeth’s shape.
  • Cosmetic alternative for amalgam fillings
  • Protecting a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.

Two Forms of Dental Bonding

Direct Composite Bonding. Is the process where dentists use tooth-colored composites, natural-looking materials that they have to fill cavities, repair chipped tooth or cracks, closing the gaps between your teeth and build up the worn-down edges of teeth.

Adhesive Bonding. Is the process of attaching a restoration tooth. It is commonly used for esthetic crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges and inlays/onlays. The tooth-colored putty-like resin is applied to the tooth, then molded and smoothed until it’s in the desired shape.

Advantages of Dental Bonding

Advantages. Dental bonding is the easiest yet least expensive than other dental cosmetics. Unlike others, bonding is typically done in one office visit unless dentist will found several are involved. Another, the least amount of tooth enamel has been removed, unless if the bonding is performed to fill a cavity, anesthesia is required.

Is there any special care for dental bonding?

There is no special care. All you need to do with your dental bonds, is to simply follow proper oral hygiene. The basics are, brush your teeth twice a day, floss it regularly, and see your dentist regular check-ups for professional cleaning. Dental bonding materials can be chipped so it is important to avoid biting your fingernails, chewing on pens, ice or other hard particles. Also, don’t use your teeth as an opener for a particular objects, especially if your teeth are bonded.
