What Is Dental Bonding?

Whether you realize it or not, you have actually most likely gotten a dental treatment including either kind of dental bonding: direct composite bonding or adhesive bonding of a remediation (crown, bridge, porcelain veneer, inlay/onlay) that was produced in a lab or in-office. Dental bonding is a treatment that provides both cosmetic and corrective benefits. The treatment involves the application of a composite resin product to the teeth in order to hide cosmetic defects such as cracks, chips, staining, and blemishes in the shape of size of your teeth. The bonding solution can also be used to fill small cavities and repair damaged teeth.

Unfortunately, composite resin is immune to whitening treatment. Dental practitioners usually recommend that patients stop smoking cigarettes before they undergo dental bonding. Individuals who regularly smoke cigarettes will certainly start to notice enhanced discoloration of the teeth as the months and years pass.

Benefits of Bonding

Dr. Franklin artistically sculpts the bonding material to create your new, natural-looking tooth. Your favourite Lodi dentist will colour the bonding product so that it completely matches the colour of your surrounding natural teeth and blends perfectly into your smile. For many clients, dental bonding is a cost-efficient choice, as well as an excellent alternative to porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is an incredibly functional treatment, since it can be performed on its own or in conjunction with other cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments, such as teeth lightening, dental crowns, and dental bridges.

What Can I Expect From Dental Bonding?

Adhesive bonding is generally used for esthetic and metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges and inlays/onlays. Typically, in order to be considered a good candidate for dental bonding, patients must have excellent oral health. Any dental issues such as cavities and gum conditions need to be fixed prior to proceeding with cosmetic treatment. Another appealing attribute of dental bonding is that the procedure yields instant results.

Since direct composite bonding involves the accurate positioning of the corrective product by the dental practitioner, the direct composite bonding treatment normally is completed in one dental appointment. More complex or comprehensive treatments may require more visits, of course. However, there is usually no need to wait for laboratory restorations. You can walk into a dental practice and emerge with a wonderfully rejuvenated smile after a single appointment. Your results can last for years, if maintained with proper oral hygiene techniques and regular dental appointments with Dr.Franklin. For more information on dental bonding and how it can enhance your smile, contact our Lodi dental experts today.
