Dental bonding is a subspecialty of dentistry that deals with adhesion to or bonding to the enamel and dentin that make up teeth naturally. To improve and enhance the smile’s appearance, it fixes chipped, fills in gaps, and alters the form and color of teeth.

A dental bonding process may be completed in only one dental appointment. It also lasts 3 to 10 years before needing repair or replacement. Laguna Dental Center and Dr. Ronald Ayzin have 5 years of experience in this procedure.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses tooth-colored composite resin to enhance your smile. This procedure can repair cracked teeth, fill in spaces, or change the teeth’ size, shape, or color.

What are the Types of Tooth Bonding?

Indirect dental bonding – is applied for placing veneers, caps, and crowns. Direct dental bonding guarantees that every bracket is positioned precisely on its associated tooth and speeds up the installation procedure.

Braces are typically positioned on each tooth. As a result, you will spend less time holding your mouth open by cheek retractor devices and less time in the chair while your braces are bonding to your teeth.

Direct dental bonding – a simple process to modify the look of teeth for smile makeovers or to repair damaged or chipped teeth using durable composite material.

Why is Dental Bonding done?

Your dentist may suggest dental bonding to enhance the look of your teeth for the following reasons.

  • repair chips – Dental bonding restores teeth that are broken, chipped, or otherwise damaged and takes away from the patient’s smile.
  • close down gaps – Teeth gaps that might harm a patient’s oral health can be simply closed with dental bonding.
  • change the shape and color of a tooth – may improve the appearance of a patient’s smile by making it more even and attractive.

How is the teeth bonding procedure done?

Tooth bonding is a quick and easy cosmetic treatment in which your dentist fixes damage to your teeth by bonding a composite resin to it. Here’s how it is done.

  1. The tooth’s surface will be roughened by the dentist, who will also apply a liquid conditioner. It facilitates the bonding substance’s adherence to the tooth.
  2. To get the correct shape, tooth-colored putty-like resin is applied, molded, and smoothed.
  3. A powerful (often blue) light or laser hardens the material.

FAQs for Dental Bonding

Patients frequently inquire as to whether or not others can see that the tooth was bonded. It is hard for others to tell that a tooth repair has been made since the composites used for tooth bonding are made to resemble real teeth exactly.

Additionally, specific cleaning is not necessary for dental bonding. Maintaining a composite-bonded tooth is the same as maintaining your natural teeth. Use mouthwash to clean the little crevices in your mouth between your teeth, floss every day, brush twice a day, and go to the dentist twice a year.

Is dental bonding painful?

Dental bonding is not uncomfortable to do. There is no need for painkillers. However, after the procedure, your teeth may still be sensitive to both hot and cold meals.

What not to do after Dental Bonding?

Pretzels, almonds, and other crunchy or hard foods that might break the resin should be avoided. Avoid foods that can stain your teeth, such tea, red wine, berries, and sports drinks.

Avoid using anything that might discolor your teeth, including cigarettes. Avoid acidic meals like soda and juice that degrade composite resin and enamel.
