What Is Dental Bonding?

dental bonding treatment on woman in Austin, Texas Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses bonding materials to create a tight, durable seal around your tooth. It is an effective, minimally-invasive solution for teeth that are:

  • Worn or misshapen
  • Chipped or cracked
  • Crooked
  • Discolored
  • Gapped
  • Uneven

During the bonding process, an acrylic composite is layered onto the enamel of your existing tooth. It is then sculpted, shaped and hardened using a curing light. The composite is applied directly to the affected tooth and does not affect your other existing teeth. The procedure can usually be completed in just one office visit.

Advantages of Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding is a popular treatment option because it offers a number of advantages; it is:

  • Versatile: Bonding is capable of achieving several goals at once, such as repairing chips, protecting enamel and whitening the tooth’s appearance.
  • Convenient: Tooth bonding can often be completed without needing to remove much of your natural tooth material.
  • Quick: The dental bonding procedure can typically be completed in just a single office visit.
  • Economical: When compared to other cosmetic restorations such as dental veneers, bonding can be a less expensive alternative.

Although tooth bonding is an effective treatment option, it does come with certain trade-offs. Bonding can stain and lose its luster over time. Tooth bonding is not as durable and long-lasting as ceramic restorations.

Dental Bonding Aftercare

Like many dental procedures, the longevity of your results depends greatly on your personal oral hygiene habits following the treatment. During the first 48 hours following your bonding, you should avoid:

  • Smoking
  • Stain-causing foods such as berries
  • Beverages that stain teeth, like red wine and coffee

With attentive care, the composite bonding material can last for years. To maximize the longevity of your results, you should practice good oral hygiene and maintain a regular checkup schedule with Dr. Loveless. You should also avoid bad habits such as:

  • Opening packages with your teeth
  • Chewing on pens and pencils
  • Biting your fingernails
  • Biting down on hard food items like fruit pits, popcorn kernels, ice cubes and hard candies
