Enjoy dental bonding with the team at Taylor Street Dental
Created on March 15, 2019
Imperfections can impact the appearance of the smile. Common complaints include teeth that are spaced apart, permanently stained, or chipped. When these situations occur, it is essential that patients book an appointment with the team at Taylor Street Dental to learn about coverage solutions such as composite resin bonding, or “dental bonding.”
How is dental bonding used?
Dental bonding is used to disguise specific problem areas within the smile. This material, made of composite resin, is easily molded into place onto the teeth and then hardened and polished to look like natural tooth enamel. It is most often used for cosmetic purposes, allowing patients the opportunity to address imperfections that may make them feel self-conscious about their smile’s appearance when they laugh, talk, or smile with others.
Dental bonding is fast and efficient. The material is applied to the tooth of concern and molded into shape. The dentist then uses a special curing light that will harden the material in a matter of minutes. Once hardened, the dentist can then file and polish the resin down to match the size and shape needed, and then polishes to recreate the appearance of natural, shiny tooth enamel. In one appointment, patients can use dental bonding to completely transform the look of their smile.
What are the benefits of composite resin bonding?
Many patients choose composite resin bonding because of the many benefits it provides. It can be completed in just one appointment, can provide amazing coverage, and will last approximately five years or longer with proper care. It is important that patients take good care of their smile when composite resin is in place, as this material can be susceptible to staining and discoloration which can occur over time. Composite resin bonding is also incredibly affordable and biocompatible with the smile.
