Dental bonding is an incredibly versatile cosmetic dental treatment that can improve the appearance of a tooth or multiple teeth in your smile. At Dental Care of Fremont, the treatment involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the affected teeth. The material is carefully shaped and molded to look just like a natural tooth, and when it is hardened in place, it can provide incredible improvements to your smile. The composite resin used in dental bonding is customizable to match your natural teeth' color, translucency, and texture. This allows for a seamless blend, resulting in a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing smile. Dental bonding can treat many cosmetic imperfections that affect your appearance, including chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and more. It also can be used to close off small openings between teeth and cover any exposed roots.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
Dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure. Unlike veneers or crowns that require removing a significant amount of tooth structure, bonding typically requires minimal or no enamel removal. This makes it a conservative option for cosmetic enhancements, as it preserves the natural tooth structure. Dental bonding involves the application of a composite resin material directly to the tooth. The resin is color-matched to your natural teeth to ensure a seamless blend. The tooth surface is prepared by roughening it and applying a conditioning liquid. Then, the resin is molded and shaped onto the tooth, and a special light is used to harden and bond the material. The dentist will trim and polish the bonded tooth for a natural and attractive result.
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
There are many benefits of getting tooth bonding from our dentists. Dental bonding can address various cosmetic concerns, including chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, discoloration, misshapen teeth, and even minor tooth alignment issues. It can effectively enhance the appearance of teeth and create a more harmonious smile. If you are self-conscious about the look of your smile, then tooth bonding may be a promising treatment option. Whether you have chipped or cracked teeth or want to cover stains on your teeth, tooth bonding can be completed in a single appointment and can significantly improve the appearance of your smile.
The composite resin in tooth bonding applications can be color-matched to your surrounding teeth for a seamless look. Our dentists can first file down your natural tooth enamel to ensure that the bonding material will fit adequately and appear natural in your smile. Tooth bonding can last several years before needing to be replaced, which is longer than other cosmetic treatments like whitening gels.
