Why Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a simple and quick solution to tooth related problems. It can fix decayed teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, or spaces between teeth while looking like normal healthy teeth. The process is relatively simple and involves little to no pain and no anesthesia, with the exception of filling cavities. First, the dentist will use a guide to find a shade that will match your

teeth, so that what is added to the tooth will appear like the rest of your teeth. Then he or she will roughen the surface of the tooth and condition it so the resign will have a strong bond with the existing tooth. This removes only a small amount of decay and enamel from the tooth, that is why the procedure is less painful. Then the resin is applied to the tooth and is molded, smoothed, and hardened using ultraviolet light. ​​

After that, the dentist will shape and trim the resign further to make the resign appear like it is a normal part of your tooth. The procedure is quick and usually takes around 60 minutes. This is one of the main advantages to dental bonding. For dental work that could require getting partial dentures in the future this can fix the problem in a matter of an hour without the need for anesthesia. Before any decisions are made be sure to always consult your dentist. If you enjoy your blog be sure to like it and leave a comment below.
