Dental Bonding

There are many reasons dental bonding may be used on your teeth. These can include restoring a tooth that has decayed, or been chipped or broken, as well as filling in gaps between teeth without resorting to orthodontic procedures. It can also be used to preserve an a tooth that has had its root exposed due to receding gums, or to lengthen a tooth. Dental Bonding can also be used to attach dental appliances to the teeth such as braces, bridges, and other orthodontic appliances, and can be a great tooth-colored alternative to the traditional silver amalgam fillings.

First, a soft composite resin filling is first scooped onto the teeth. The dentist will sculpt, and shape the composite filling. Next, a high intensity light is applied to the resin, which hardens the material. Finally, the dentist polishes the surface to obtain natural looking appearance that blends with the tooth. The typical time it takes to complete dental bonding is anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. Some of the advantages of deciding to use dental bonding is that it is one of the least expensive but one of the easiest dental procedures to have completed. Plus, it most often doesn’t require the use of anesthesia.
