Dental bonding is a common way to improve the appearance of discolored, chipped, or cracked teeth. Imperfect teeth might harm your self-esteem. It can cause you to hide your smile when you're in the company of others.

Dental bonding can be used to repair tooth flaws at Soos Creek Dental in Covington, WA. It is one of the least intrusive dental procedures available today for restoring your teeth and smile.

Bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure. It involves the application of composite resinous material on the surface of the teeth that are either damaged, cracked, misshapen, or severely stained. It is a non-invasive procedure and helps to save the natural tissues of the teeth. In fact, it strengthens the tooth structure and reduces its chances of failure.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a type of cosmetic dental operation that improves the appearance of your teeth. This is a rapid and effective technique that will provide you with the greatest results in the shortest amount of time.

To match the color of your original teeth, our dentist will utilize a material comparable to resin. Following that, UV rays are used to ensure that the material correctly combines with your teeth. 

What Is the Function of Bonding?

If you have tooth erosion or cracks, bonding can be used to cover and seal them. Bonding can restore the appearance and comfort of your smile while also preserving your teeth from further deterioration. It can also be used to repair minor flaws. 

Benefits of Dental Bonding

  • It is one of the simplest treatments in dentistry.
  • It is one of the least expensive dental procedures available.
  • Unless there are numerous teeth to bond, it can be completed in a single visit.
  • The tooth's outermost structure is kept because its removal is unneeded.
  • There is no need for anesthesia.
  • It is effective at correcting minor visual flaws.
  • It can be used as a temporary fix for a cosmetic flaw.

What Is the Dental Bonding Procedure?

Dental bonding is a straightforward treatment that does not usually necessitate the use of anesthetics. We will begin by analyzing your tooth condition to determine whether bonding is the best option for correcting your tooth problem.

If you have tooth decay, we will need to prepare the tooth by extracting the decay. Because the decayed area of the tooth must be removed, an anesthetic may be required. In the instance of broken or chipped teeth, we will need to roughen the tooth for it to adhere to the bonding material. We will apply the bonding resin to the afflicted areas after the tooth has been suitably prepped. The resin will then be shaped to resemble your actual tooth.

Why should you choose composite bonding?

Dental bonding can be completed in as little as one visit to our practice. It wouldn’t require any complicated surgery, prolonged healing time, and in most cases, there wouldn’t even be a need for anesthesia.

The visual similarity that composite bonding material can have with natural enamel is just amazing. Its color, texture, translucency, etc. can be perfectly matched with that of the natural teeth.

The putty-like material that is applied on the surface of the teeth can be shaped as required. The contour of the tooth will be restored to normal with high precision, thereby avoiding any suspicion of tooth restorations when someone sees you smile.

The bonding material wouldn’t break off or get dislocated easily as it firmly adheres to the teeth' surface. You can bite and chew food without having to worry about your restoration failing. However, avoid ripping open plastic bags or opening bottle caps using your teeth as this could damage it!
