What is Dental Bonding ?
Dental bonding is a Cosmetic technique also known as bonding restoration. It is a painless technique used to make small and medium repairs to your teeth. Bonding is an effective and relatively less expensive dental procedure used to improve the look of your teeth. Bonding uses a tooth colored material, called composite resin. The resin color is chosen to match your existing teeth when doing a repair. It can also be a whiter color if you are lightening your teeth.
Dental bonding can be used to fix many smile problems such as teeth that are chipped or cracked. Bonding can be a quick fix to improve your smile if you have large spaces or discolored teeth. This treatment can be expected to last for years with proper dental habits. Bonding can also allow you to see how your smile can be transformed prior to choosing a more permanent treatment.
Bonding can be used to drastically improve your smile in several ways such as:
- Change the color of your tooth,
- Re shape your tooth,
- Fix your tooth spacing,
- Repair a broken tooth,
- Make your teeth longer,
- Fill a broken tooth.
How does cosmetic dental bonding work?
Dental bonding uses a material called composite resin. First, our dentist will use a clear thin plastic film to protect the surrounding teeth. Next the tooth being repaired will be treated with a mild chemical to make the surface rough on the repair area. (this is so the composite bonding resin can stick to your enamel better)
The composite resin is also matched to your natural tooth color or the new color you desire. We want to makes sure the repair looks as natural as possible and blends in with your other teeth. Next the resin is applied to your tooth and properly shaped layer by layer. Each layer of resin will be shaped and then hardened with a special curing light. Several layers may be needed.
Once all the layers have been completed and cured, the repaired tooth will be polished. Your new tooth repair will be a naturally smooth finish just like the surrounding teeth. This whole procedure can usually be done pain free in just one visit without using needles.
We will examine and inspect the repair on your next visit if needed. In most cases your teeth will be ready to use like normal the very same day. We offer a full range of dental services including cosmetic dental bonding in Grimsby.
