Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic restorative dental procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is bonded to teeth. A big advantage bonding has over other types of cosmetic dentistry like crowns and veneers, is its simplicity. Bonding is quick and easy. It can usually be taken care of during a single visit, while crowns and veneers must be created in a lab, requiring return visits.

Generally, bonding is the best choice for minor damage or small cosmetic issues such as closing black triangles or gaps between teeth, stained or discolored teeth and slight wear and tear of teeth, including chips or cracks.

Bonding, however, does have its limitations. The materials used are less durable than those used for crowns and veneers, so there is a risk of teeth becoming chipped or cracked again. Not everyone is a candidate for dental bonding. Schedule a visit today at Norman Smile Center for a cosmetic consultation.

Preparing for dental bonding is easy. Your dentist will start by selecting a shade of resin that most closely resembles the color of your teeth and then will apply the composite resin using a Bioclear Matrix to shape the tooth. The restoration is then polished smooth, creating a natural looking tooth.
The good news about bonded teeth is that they’re pretty easy to care for—just follow a good oral hygiene routine at home! Brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time and flossing once each day not only prevents cavities but also can keep your bonding bright and white. Avoid chewing on hard food and candy or chewing habits like biting on ice and fingernails. Limit foods and drinks that are notorious for staining such as coffee, tea and soft drinks.
