What is Tooth Bonding?
Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment option that utilizes biocomposite resin material that is “bonded” to teeth. This option is a great economical alternative to porcelain veneers for a natural look.
Tooth bonding can be used to fix teeth that are:
This treatment can also fix gaps between teeth for a more balanced smile. Tooth bonding fixes cosmetic dental issues quickly and effectively by using high-quality professional material.
The Tooth Bonding Procedure
Before the procedure, Dr. Brock Hyder will assess your oral health and discuss your budget and goals with you. If tooth bonding is the right treatment for you, the process will begin when Dr. Hyder prepares the tooth by removing some of the tooth structure. Teeth are prepared to ensure that tooth bonding material conforms to teeth.
Biocomposite resin is then applied to prepared tooth. Dr. Hyder will sculpt the material into the desired shape so that it looks natural and blends in seamlessly. After it is shaped to the tooth, the resin is “bonded” using a special curing light. The tooth bonding material is also color-matched to teeth for the most natural-looking results. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Hyder to see if comfortable and durable tooth bonding treatment is right for you.
For 48 hours after treatment, you should avoid drinking beverages like coffee, tea, and sodas which can stain your teeth. With the right dental care, tooth bonding treatment can last from 4 to 8 years. If you suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding, ensure that you get the proper treatment from Dr. Hyder first before choosing tooth bonding. Excessive pressure and grinding on teeth can damage bonding material. Otherwise, tooth bonding holds up in regular dental cases.
Tooth Bonding FAQs
Does tooth bonding hurt?
No, the bonding process shouldn’t hurt. The only time you may experience discomfort is if bonding material is going over an area where the nerves are exposed.
Can I eat after getting tooth bonding?
You should be able to eat right after your appointment to get tooth bonding. However, you may experience some sensitivity to foods or beverages to foods that are very hot or cold.
Is dental bonding removable?
Yes, dental bonding is reversible if you desire because it doesn’t involve the removal of tooth enamel. Many patients choose this treatment because it can be used as a temporary solution. After a few years, you can remove it and have a more permanent treatment completed such as porcelain veneers.
