Bonding

Bonding

Your dentist may use of advanced 3D imaging, innovative computer systems, and the latest dental technology. But sometimes a problem can be solved much more simply. That’s why we never stopped offering bonding as part of our dental solutions.

Do You Need Bonding?

When you visit your dental clinic, we will make a very comprehensive assessment of your teeth. We will take note of even the smallest problems, and some of these can be solved with bonding. Bonding can cover up a severe stain that even our teeth whitening can’t help. You may have a crack or a chip in a tooth. Two adjacent teeth may have separated to form an obvious gap between them. One tooth may look too small compared to the other tooth beside it, or it may have a shape that’s no longer effective for chewing, or no longer attractive to look at.

If you have any or all of these small problems, a simple bonding solution will suffice.

So What Is Bonding?

Basically, in bonding your dentist will put a natural-looking gummy resin to your tooth and then mold and polish it to a perfect shape. So if you have a severe stain, this resin will cover it up so your teeth will look brighter.

This gummy resin can be also shaped to fit in the gap between adjacent teeth. It can fill in your cavities so they will look a lot better. It will attach to your teeth to fix any chip or cracks. It can even cover up the root of a tooth when your gums have receded so that germs can’t get inside and cause an infection.

Benefits of Bonding

Aside from fixing all these problems effectively, you’ll also receive several benefits from it. One benefit is that it is a very simple treatment, and that means there’s very little chance that something will go wrong. We don’t have to prepare your teeth extensively so that the gummy resin can be bonded to your teeth.

And it’s also affordable. Your dental insurance might even cover it entirely. It’s much more affordable than other cosmetic dental solutions. If you’ve noticed small aesthetic problems with your teeth, bonding is simple, quick, and affordable.
