What to Expect during Your Dental Bonding Procedure

Posted on 2/27/2016 by Sergio Ortegon
A woman happy with her new smile repaired with dental bonding. Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Do your front teeth have chips, or are they extremely discolored? Are you looking for a minimally invasive way to correct these problems? If any of these scenarios ring true, dental bonding might be the right procedure for you, and you might want to learn more about the procedure.

When the dental bonding process starts, your dentist will first roughen up the affected tooth so that the resin material will be able to properly adhere to the surface. This is usually done with a Dremel tool. Depending on the severity of damage to your tooth, your dentist could numb the tooth in order to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Dental bonding involves applying a resin to the surface of the affected teeth. Then, it is molded to the correct shape and hardened with a special light in order to fill in chips or cracks. It is created to match the exact shade of your natural teeth, and once the resin has hardened, it will be indistinguishable from your natural enamel.

After your teeth have been bonded, your teeth might feel a little different. Our mouths are sensitive to changes, so your tooth could feel wider when the resin is added. As time goes on, this change will begin to bother you less, but you will need to make sure that you are caring for them properly.

In a perfect world, bonding should be able to last for about a decade, depending on the bite area and how well you treat the tooth that has been restored. You should be sure to keep a healthy oral hygiene routine to keep your newly bonded teeth white.

If you are interested in dental boning as a way to improve the appearance of your smile, contact our office to set up an appointment.
