Dental Bonding: Benefits and Types

Posted by PRIMARY DENTAL CLIINC on Jan 5 2022, 08:20 AM

Some people have misshapen, or crooked teeth while others have large spaces between their teeth. These imperfections could make one depressed and feel shameful to display a smile. Don't get disappointed! A simple dental procedure like dental bonding can help you get that bright smile and enhance confidence.

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to fix a decayed, discolored tooth or to achieve some other cosmetic purpose. The procedure is quick and non-invasive, and the results will last for long with the right care.

Need for Dental Bonding

During the dental bonding procedure, a tooth-colored resin is applied to the tooth surface and hardened with a high-intensity curing light. This application bonds tightly with the teeth to resolve dental issues. 

Dental bonding can do the following:

  • Repair decayed teeth 
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • Close the gap between teeth
  • Make teeth look longer
  • Change the appearance of misshapen teeth
  • Replace amalgam fillings with a cosmetic alternative
  • Advantages of Dental Bonding
  • It is a single-visit treatment
  • Just enough tooth enamel is removed for a secure bonding process
  • Anesthesia is generally not required unless dental bonding is done to fill a cavity
  • It is not an expensive dental treatment
  • Its aftercare is simple

Types of Dental Bonding

  • Direct Composite Bonding

Direct composite bonding is a type of dental bonding in which composite resin is applied directly to the tooth. Then, the composite material is hardened with a curing light to complete the process. The procedure is often used to treat cavities, repair chipped teeth, and close small gaps.

  • Adhesive Bonding

Adhesive bonding is a type of dental bonding that involves material, a bonding agent, and ultraviolet light to cure the tooth and resin. The dentist matches the color of the resin to that of the tooth. 

Then, tooth surfaces are roughened using a gentle phosphoric acid solution. A liquid bonding agent is then applied and tooth-colored resin is added following this. Finally, the resin gets hardened with the curing light. Adhesive bonding is commonly used with a dental crown or filling.
