What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic Bonding is a very popular dental cosmetic treatment at most dental offices today. This is because bonding offers a chance for anyone to get a fast, economical, and easy smile makeover in a single visit!
Composite Bonding Procedure
If you frequently find yourself covering your mouth when you laugh, or shying away from smiling because of certain dental imperfections, then bonding may be the perfect treatment for you.
Direct cosmetic bonding conceals irregularities such as staining, discolorations, chipped margins, minor fractures, small cavities, gaps, previous colored fillings, and issues related to the size and shape of the teeth.
The procedure is very simple and straightforward. A tooth-colored resin filling material, called composite, is applied directly onto the teeth, to either cover a defect or to rebuild a small portion of the tooth. This material is then hardened and set in place with the help of a dental curing light. The filling is polished to give it a shiny, natural appearance. In some cases, the tooth needs to be slightly trimmed down to accommodate the proper application of the material.
Advantages of Bonding:
There are a number of advantages associated with aesthetic dental bonding. These include:
- Affordability: The treatment is much cheaper compared to the cost of porcelain veneers.
- Fast: Cosmetic dental bonding of multiple teeth can be done in one sitting, which means that patients can get a complete smile makeover in a single visit to the office.
- Non-invasive: Compared to veneers, composite bonding requires little or no tooth preparation, making it a comfortable, painless procedure that in most cases is reversible.
- Natural Appearance: Composite is a material that can be matched to the exact shade of the teeth present in the oral cavity. It can be used to replicate the natural dental shape and morphology.
It is important to note that composite can be prone to staining, and patients must avoid food and beverages that contain natural/artificial dyes to maintain the results of the treatment for as long as possible.
