What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is the application of a treatment consisting of a material resembling a tooth. This material is applied to the tooth’s surface, and in the process improves the shape, form, and appearance of your teeth. One of the commonly used materials is composite resin. Our dentists make sure that they choose a shade of resin that looks or matches the color of your natural teeth. This is important since it will create a consistent look for all of your teeth. People will not even notice that you’ve had treatment, and you can enjoy your new smile.
The process starts with the dentist creating a rough surface on your teeth. This helps the resin to have a strong grip on your teeth. After the preparation, our cosmetic dentist will apply the material to the surface of your tooth. The resin will then be left to dry and harden.
Why Do I Need Tooth Bonding?
When you have chipped teeth, dental bonding is the right procedure that you need. If you have teeth that appear smaller than others the dentist will use bonding to make the teeth the same size. If you have discolored teeth then the dentist will use bonding. The bonding procedure is good if the teeth are chipped, misshapen, and even discolored.
Caring for Bonded Teeth
Bonded teeth need care just like you do with natural teeth. You will need to brush and floss twice daily, as usual, to stay away from cavities. Avoid foods that make the teeth discolored, as bonding material can stain, just like your natural teeth. Ensure that you maintain regular dental visits so that the dentist can examine you and detect any oral issues. Avoid habits that damage the teeth; bonding material can fracture or break.
When playing sports, ensure that you wear mouth guards to keep your mouth and teeth safe. Avoid doing things like nail-biting and even opening lids of jars using the teeth, as the bonding material can come off. The bonding material is important for it allows you to have a long-lasting method of improving the appearance of the mouth.
If you take care of the teeth as required, the bonding procedure will last for a long time. You will maintain that beautiful smile that you have always wanted.
