Consider the Benefits of Dental Bonding

Jul 01, 2021

Although you may not have heard about dental bonding before now, it’s one of the most popular and widely used procedures in modern dentistry to correct an array of dental concerns. Not only is it one of the most popular treatments used in comprehensive dentistry, but it’s also one of the gentlest and most affordable too. We invite you to make an appointment now to receive dental bonding near you from our dentist at Dental Arts of Plymouth.

Most Common Reasons for Dental Bonding Treatment

Dr. Williams knows that every patient is unique, so he would never force anyone into deciding on a dental procedure without first providing them with complete information about how the treatment is used, what it costs, and how it can benefit them.

That’s why we recommend that you make a consultation appointment with Dr. Williams today to learn how dental bonding might be used to correct your smile concerns. Some of the most common problems that dental bonding can be used for include:

  • Repairing decayed teeth.
  • Repairing cracked or chipped teeth.
  • Closing gaps between teeth.
  • Changing the shape or size of teeth.
  • Repairing a tooth that is badly cracked.
  • Protecting a tooth’s root if it’s becoming exposed.
  • Enhancing and correcting the color of stained or discolored teeth.

Other treatment methods can be used for some of the above conditions instead of dental bonding,such as dental veneers or aligner therapy. Still, as one of the most gentle and quick treatments, dental bonding remains one of the top choices for many patients.

The Dental Bonding Procedure Explained

When you visit Dr. Williams for your dental bonding consultation, he will explain in detail how the procedure will be used for your smile correction. In general, however, the procedure is similar for most patients.

Bonding involves using dental adhesives to affix resin to the natural tooth to repair it for any of the reasons shown above. After applying the adhesive, which is white or slightly off-white to match the color of your natural teeth, Dr. Williams will use a curing light that contains UV rays to harden and seal the material.

The materials that Dr. Williams uses in dental bonding procedures are biocompatible, meaning it is not harmful to human tissue . This is especially important if the procedure is being performed to repair the decay of a tooth since it means you don’t have to worry about toxicity from harmful chemicals that were once prevalent in silver fillings.

Also, in most procedures for dental bonding, patients do not require anesthesia since drilling is not necessary. However, if you are receiving the procedure to reshape the structure of a tooth, anesthesia may be recommended. Plus, your procedure can most often be performed from start to finish in about one hour. That means you can visit us during your lunch hour and not worry about missing time from work or school.
