Dental Bonding

The process of dental bonding is an easy and cost-effective method to fix minor cosmetic or functional tooth damage. It can be compared to a simple crown or veneer that is not as durable. However, this decreased durability is traded for an increase in versatility and affordability.

Cosmetic damage to teeth can occur in a variety of ways; teeth often discolor naturally with age, and sports accidents can lead to a chipped tooth. Even with consistent and vigorous tooth brushing, flossing, and dentists’ visits, many people will still develop minor cosmetic issues. Even with our best efforts to maintain oral hygiene, our teeth can still develop problems. Dental bonding is a simple, easy, and affordable solution to these problems.

What is it?

During the dental bonding procedure, tooth-colored resin is bound to problem teeth in order to cover the areas with issues. This process not only covers imperfections on your teeth, but it can also be used as a semi-permanent solution to fill cavities. Dental bonds rarely come unbonded and only the infrequent touch-up or replacement is required.

When is Dental Bonding Used?

There are many different reasons that a dentist may suggest that you have a dental bonding procedure performed. Here are some common reasons to use dental bonding:

  • To repair any structural damage to a tooth
  • To occupy small gaps between teeth
  • To add protection for tooth roots exposed by gum reduction
  • To alter a misshapen tooth
  • To match the size of a tooth to the rest of your teeth
  • To mask discoloration
  • To treat minor decay as a tooth filling

Should You get a Dental Bond?

While you may see the benefits of dental bonding now, it is important that you don’t rush into it, as it may not be the right treatment for your situation; leave the diagnosis and treatment to a professional: your dentist. Only they can determine if your particular case warrants dental bonding. While dental bonding is a very versatile treatment option, it cannot be used in certain cases, such as on teeth that are under frequent, heavy pressure (such as molars) or covering large, damaged areas and major decay.

The most common reason for getting a dental bond is to repair minor structural or cosmetic imperfections. It is often chosen because of the speed of the procedure, the simplicity of the procedure, and the affordability of the procedure. It is possible that after examining your tooth, your dentist will suggest a crown or veneer, instead. It is always in your best interest to follow the advice of your dental professional.
