Dental bonding is a common and popular treatment option if you have gaps between your teeth, cracked teeth, chips in your teeth, decaying teeth or even if you have exposed roots that might be caused by other dental conditions.
Dental bonding is a common and popular treatment option if you have gaps between your teeth, cracked teeth, chips in your teeth, decaying teeth or even if you have exposed roots that might be caused by other dental conditions. The dental bonding is made from a composite resin material that is strong and can also be molded to look and feel like your natural teeth. It is not an appliance like a bridge or dental implant, but it is a substance that can be shaped to restore the look and function of a tooth or teeth with an easy procedure.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding
There are many benefits to having bonding applied to your teeth. The first benefit is that it will instantly improve the look of your teeth and restore your healthy smile. This will come as a great relief if you have struggled with cracked or chipped teeth and just cannot wait to get your teeth repaired. Another benefit is that the dental bonding can improve the strength of the tooth overall. When teeth are cracked, they are more susceptible to bacteria, infection, and the progression of further damage.
Restoring the shape of a cracked or chipped tooth means that some of the strength can be restored as well. Another major benefit of dental bonding is that it is quick and immediate. Most dental bonding treatments can be completed in just one visit at Brechon Dental, which meaning you can leave your appointment and the chipped or cracked tooth or teeth are gone. You can always have your dental bonding touched up and improved at future dental visits if you notice the bonding is wearing away, or if it needs to be replaced.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
Dental bonding treatment is both fast and easy. The first step is for the tooth that needs to be repaired to be cleaned and dried. Brechon Dental will apply cleansers and then adhesives to prepare the tooth to receive the dental bonding compound.
This prep work will allow the bonding to attach and bond to the existing tooth surface. The resin material is made up of several components, including a glue-like substance that will adhere the resin to the surface of the tooth. We will apply the resin in layers until we have achieved the desired thickness. As we add the resin we can sculpt and shape the putty-like substance to close a gap, rebuild a chip, or whatever the goal and desire might be.
The compound can also be colored to match the shade of your surrounding teeth, and then the resin is set using a special blue light that will harden the compound quickly and easily. Your restored tooth will be cleaned and polished, and then adjusted to accommodate your bite alignment and your healthy smile. The entire process normally might take one to two hours, depending on the number of teeth that we need to restore with the bonding and the severity of the damage to the tooth or the teeth.

Long Lasting Aesthetics
Dental bonding is not permanent solution; however, it can last quite some time. When the bonding is cared for properly, and when you visit Brechon Dental on a regular basis for preventative exams and touch-ups, dental bonding can last for many years. Proper care is important and necessary because dental bonding can begin to discolor over time. If you do not take care of your bonded teeth, then you will see discoloration start to occur. If you have severely damaged teeth, the dental bonding might need to be replaced with another types of solution or appliance at a later date.
Dental Bonding Vs. Veneers
Dental bonding is meant for use in simple cosmetic improvements that do not impact the function of your teeth or gums in any way. Cracks, chips, and gaps are the most common issues that dental bonding can correct. They are different from dental veneers in that veneers are made of layered glass ceramics and crafted outside of Brechon Dental in a dental lab. The veneer is designed to look and feel like your real teeth, and it adheres to your tooth with a bonded cement.
Why Consider Dental Bonding
If you are tired of looking at that gap between your front teeth, or if you have become self-conscious about the crack in your tooth, dental bonding can improve the look of your teeth quickly and easily. The longer you delay having any cracks or chips treated, the more risk you pose to your teeth. Cracks can increase, and chips can lead to decay.
When decay or further damage occurs, then more invasive procedures will be necessary. It is a wise decision to seek treatment for your cracked or chipped teeth as soon as possible. Dental bonding is suitable for children, teenagers, and adults of all ages.
