What is 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, or misalignment of teeth. It can also be used to cover or protect the root of a tooth after it’s been exposed by receding gums disease.
To achieve a perfect smile, dental bonding treatment can last between 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.
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 the patient’s smile.
Unlike veneers and crowns, which are customized tooth coverings that must be manufactured in a laboratory, bonding treatments can be done in one office visit unless several teeth are involved. Another advantage of the bondings compared to veneers and crowns is that a minimal amount of tooth enamel is removed. Also anesthesia is usually not required unless the dental bonding is done to fill a cavity.
Why Should I Choose A Dental Bonding Treatment?
This treatment is one of the most effective methods to achieve damaged teeth restoration or to gain the desired smile in the shortest of time.
- Consultation and X-Ray.
- Selecting the dental bonding colour to match the natural teeth.
- Polishing the surface of the tooth to remove any debris (for a stronger bonding surface).
- Shaping of the tooth (this may not be necessary for closing gaps or in minor chip treatments).
- Application of a gel type material called “Tooth conditioner” to the tooth’s exposed surface.
- Application of the bonding agent.
- The final process of shining the “curing light” onto the treated tooth to harden the bonding agent.
- Trimming, shaping and polishing to match the sheen to the rest of the tooth surface.
