If you are unhappy with your teeth, it can affect both your personal and professional life. To greatly improve your smile, dental bonding may be the best corrective option. Bonding is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic technique which is often completed in just one single treatment with little to no preparation. Bonding helps correct or mask minor dental imperfections, such as chipped, broken or discolored teeth, helps to close gaps, and/or change the shape, length or size of the teeth.
Types of Dental Bonding
To improve the look of your smile, it’s important to know what kind of dental bonding treatment is best for you. There are two primary dental bonding options:
- Direct Composite Bonding – This bonding procedure involves the application of a tooth-colored composite, sculpted directly to the surface of the tooth. This method is usually ideal for people with chips, gaps, stains and crooked teeth.
- Adhesive Bonding – Commonly used for people with dental crowns, bridges and inlays/onlays, this bonding technique requires the attachment of a restoration to the tooth, using an adhesive bonding agent and a high intensity curing light.
Caring for Bonded Teeth
Caring for your teeth after a bonding treatment requires the same level of care as your natural teeth. Maintain good oral hygiene habits by brushing and flossing at least twice a day. Visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and avoid biting fingernails or hard solid objects.
