What You Need To Know About Teeth Bonding

Posted on 10/11/2021 by office
What You Need To Know About Teeth BondingYour teeth help you in essential mouth activities such as chewing, biting, and crushing food particles. Your tooth enamel ensures your teeth remain strong and durable to perform these activities. However, you may find yourself getting a tooth chip through an accident, such as while using a glass bottle or at times during birth.

Teeth bonding helps in repairing chipped teeth or preventing further damage. Therefore, tooth bonding relates to a cosmetic dental surgery that repairs your chipped, broken, or cracked tooth. Also, it helps in correcting gaps between teeth and discolored teeth. The composite color of teeth bonding depends on the natural color of your teeth.

Why Choose Teeth Bonding?

Other than fixing your chips and cracks, teeth bonding improves your dental health and allows you to have a more confident smile. Also, teeth bonding allows you to properly chew your food and prevents further damage and health of your teeth. Teeth bonding is essential for you in case you suffer minor injuries and your teeth have not severely decayed. Please note that teeth bonding is best if you are happy with your teeth's color because it does not involve teeth whitening.

Teeth Bonding Procedure

The teeth bonding process does not require anesthesia unless the chip is close to your nerves. A resin color that is close to your teeth is first selected then the creation of a rough surface on your teeth begins. Application of a bonding agent on the rough surface follows. The bonding agent easily connects with your tooth due to the rough surface. The addition of a composite resin to the area starts and then we mold it to repair the chip damage. Drying takes place in UV light. Finally, the shaping of your tooth ends the tooth bonding procedure when the resin dries.

Teeth bonding is a safe dental procedure and there are no high risks involved. You should take care of your bond repairs. For further information about teeth bonding, contact our offices today and get that perfect smile!
