What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding consists of tooth-colored composite resin that is malleable and easy to apply. Unlike its counterpart, dental veneers, it is not a permanent solution but can last many years with proper care and maintenance. Not to mention, dental bonding is also highly affordable and allows you to keep more of your natural tooth structure.
The Dental Bonding Process
The process for receiving dental bonding is quite simple. Patients who are interested in this service can expect the following:
- Schedule a consultation with Dr. Bannan or Dr. Penland. During this visit, they will determine if you are eligible to receive dental bonding and how much you can expect to pay for this method of treatment.
- Our team will use a shade guide to identify the appropriate color for the composite resin before lightly etching the front surface of your tooth (teeth).
- The composite resin will be applied directly to the tooth enamel. Our team will then shape and sculpt it into place to effectively hide the imperfection and ensure it lays flat.
- A curing light is used to harden the resin and ensure it blends in beautifully with the rest of your smile.
- After a final polish, you will be free to leave and start enjoying your new and improved smile.
Dental Bonding vs. Invisalign
If you are like some individuals, you may wonder if you can opt for dental bonding when it comes to hiding minor alignment issues or gaps. Much of this is dependent upon the severity and whether the imperfection is causing problems with your oral health. If the gap is quite large or the alignment is causing a breakdown of tooth enamel or difficulty eating, speaking, or sleeping, you’ll likely be required to undergo treatment with Invisalign or even traditional braces.
However, if our team deems your gap or alignment issue to be purely cosmetic, you can move forward with dental bonding.
