What is Tooth Bonding?
Tooth bonding is a very straightforward procedure that can take under an hour.
Say you come into the office with a chipped tooth. Your dentist will first prep the tooth by roughening the surface, then use a tooth-colored composite resin material to reshape the tooth carefully and craftily. The resin material gets hardened by UV light and polished to make it look natural.
That’s all it takes! You will be good to go after that.
This is a quick, affordable, and time-efficient method for tooth repair that does not require anesthesia. You can even simultaneously use the treatment on multiple teeth to create a healthier and more attractive smile.
The Pros and Cons of Tooth Bonding
Like any other dental procedure, knowing the pros and cons is important to make an informed decision about your treatment. Take a look at the pros and cons of this treatment to see if it is right for you. Dr. Mobasser can answer any questions you have about the treatment.
Tooth bonding is a much more affordable option to restore your smile than treatments such as veneers or dental implants. It also preserves your natural tooth structure, making it a reversible treatment.
The treatment is painless, quick, and affordable, much more so than alternative restorative or cosmetic treatments. The results look very natural and can last up to a decade before needing to be repaired.
If you are considering tooth bonding, you should understand that there is a risk that the bonding can break off if you are not careful with your teeth. Bonding can separate from your tooth if you use your teeth to open packaging or bite down on hard candy.
You will also need to take good care of the resin material, as it can stain. You can manage this by taking great care of your teeth and getting regular dental cleanings.
Who Can Receive Tooth Bonding?
While this treatment has many benefits for restoring your smile, it will not suit every patient.
Bad habits that may keep you from being a candidate for this procedure include smoking, chewing ice, and nail biting, which can damage your bonding. Also, if you are interested in doing a full smile makeover, you may want to consider alternative cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers.
Luckily, Dr. Mobasser is skilled and passionate about giving his patients a stunning smile with cosmetic dental treatments. Reach our office today to learn more about how he can transform your smile.
