What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is used on individual teeth to improve the appearance. A tooth-colored composite material is shaped over the tooth and is bonded to the enamel. It is sculpted on to the tooth and hardened in place using a special light. Dental bonding helps to improve several different dental issues such as small cracks, chips, tooth gaps, discoloration, and yellow teeth. If you are interested in improving the appearance of your teeth, then talk to your dentist about dental bonding.

Pros and Cons of Dental Bonding

Typically, dental bonding is a cheaper option in comparison to veneers or crowns. They also only require one visit to a dental office depending on how many teeth require the procedure. Dental bonding is a totally painless procedure that only requires anesthesia if it is being used as a filling. Unfortunately, the material used for dental bonding can be stained and is less durable compared to veneers or crowns. However, with proper care on the patient’s part, dental bonds can last for several years.

Dental bonding helps to improve a wide range of dental issues many individuals suffer with. Contact your Compassion Smiles dentist for more information regarding treatment options. Call us today to set up your next appointment with a member of our staff.
