About Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding is the application of a resin material that has the color of teeth using a high-intensity curing light and adhesives. As the name suggests, dental bonding, materials are bonded to the tooth.


Teeth bonding uses
  • To fix decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • To fix cracked or chipped teeth
  • To enhance the look of stained teeth
  • To close spaces between teeth
  • To make teeth appear longer
  • To change the teeth's shape
  • As a cosmetic substitute for amalgam fillings
  • To guard a portion of the tooth's root, this has been exposed when the gums recede

Dental bonding procedure

This procedure takes little to no preparation, and the usage of anesthesia is usually unnecessary except if the bonding is being used to fill a tooth that has decayed. Your dentist will match the color of your existing teeth to choose a composite resin color, which will closely match the shade of your tooth.


Types of dental bonding
  • Direct Composite Bonding- this is the procedure where dentists use tooth-colored composites (natural-looking or white materials), which they have in their offices to build-up the worn-down edges of teeth, repair cracks or chips, fill cavities and close gaps between your teeth.
  • Adhesive Bonding- Adhesive bonding in contrast to direct composite bonding is the procedure of attaching a restoration to a tooth. This technique is often used for inlays/onlays, porcelain veneers, esthetic crowns, and bridges.

Pros and cons of dental bonding
  • Pros- Dental bonding is regarded as the commonest and most affordable of cosmetic dentistry procedures. It may often be performed in one brief office visit except if multiple teeth are involved. Another benefit to bonding is that in comparison to crowns and veneers, it needs little to no removal of tooth enamel. Many procedures which involve dental bonding don't need anesthesia.
  • Cons- The material utilized in dental bonding isn't as sturdy as your real teeth, so chewing on pens or biting on fingernails can, in fact, chip the material. Bonding only lasts some years before it needs to be repaired and isn't as strong as other restorative procedures, such as crowns, fillings, or veneers. It's also not as stain resistant as crowns.

Since there are a few limitations to the restorative impacts that bonding may have, some dentists might view it as ideal for correction of teeth in areas of extremely low bite pressure (for instance, front teeth), for temporary correction of cosmetic defects, and for small cosmetic changes.


Teeth bonding consultation

Your dentist will perform a comprehensive assessment of your teeth, which might include an examination of your gums and teeth and x-rays. During your consultation, your dentist will consider if you're a candidate for the cosmetic issues, which bonding can resolve, like "short teeth," cracked, chipped teeth or tooth discoloration, decayed teeth, gaps, and more. If you have teeth, which are extensively damaged your dentist might recommend other cosmetic or restorative procedures, which meet more lasting goals.

After care : The care essential to retain a beautiful and healthy smile is to maintain good oral hygiene practices. Brushing at least two times each day and flossing are good solutions to keep good oral health. Frequent check-ups as recommended by your dentist must ensure clean teeth and a healthy smile. Since the material utilized in bonding may chip, refrain from biting on hard objects which might result in damage. Biting nails, chewing on ice, pens or other hard food stuff must be avoided. If the tooth feels differently compared to when you had your procedure, you might have chipped the bond. Consult your dentist if this occurs.
