Dental bonding is a cost efficient solution for correcting gapped, chipped, broken, or cracked teeth. If more than 1/3 of your tooth is missing, you will need to consider a dental crown, or inlays and onlays for complete restoration. Bonding costs a lot less than dental crowns and will require less time in the chair. As both a cosmetic and restorative solution, it can dramatically change your smile. At Designed Smiles, we offer bonding to any patients who have an overall good dental health and who would benefit from it.
You will consult with your dentist to see if your teeth can benefit from dental bonding. If you are a candidate, your tooth will be numbed with a local anesthetic and your tooth will then be roughed up, and an acid etch is applied to get rid of any debris and to open up tiny holes in your tooth. These tiny holes allow for the composite material to stick. Once the composite material is applied, it will be shaped and then cured using a special light. The LED light is used to harden the resin. The tooth is then polished for a sparkling new look. The composite is as strong as a dental crown and will not be able to be damaged unless physical harm has been inflicted.
Dental bonding has many benefits for both restorative and cosmetic reasons. To start, dental bonding can help restore your teeth when they are cracked, chipped or partially broken. This will prevent your tooth from being susceptible to any food particles or bacteria that want to get in. As a means of cosmetic work, dental bonding will make your teeth look as good as new. It’s also a cheaper alternative to braces if you want to get rid of any gaps in your teeth. It looks completely natural and lasts for a long time. It won’t be obvious that your work isn’t natural.
If your teeth have minor problems such as cracks, chips, gaps, or are partially broken, you may benefit from dental bonding. It is cost efficient and will provide flawless results.
