What is Dental Bonding? What You Need to Know
If you’re unhappy with your smile due to gaps between your teeth, chips, or other minor cosmetic imperfections, then you may want to consider dental bonding. This cosmetic procedure is often a viable option for patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile without the need for extensive procedures.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a minor cosmetic procedure that involves the placement and careful shaping of composite material over an existing tooth or multiple teeth. Once shaped, this composite material can be hardened using a high-intensity light identical to the light used to harden a composite cavity filling.
Because of the malleable property of the composite resin, this procedure can be used to fill in small gaps between teeth, chips, and even slightly crooked teeth to drastically improve the look of your smile in as little as a 30-minute treatment session per tooth. Best of all, the procedure does not require any drilling or other extensive work, so it is completely painless – there is no need for anaesthesia.
Who is a Viable Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a great alternative to more involved procedures, such as dental veneers or even braces. Plus, it tends to cost significantly less. It is still important to consult with an experienced dentist to find out whether you’re a good candidate for dental bonding.
