Smiles that contain chipped or cracked teeth, no matter how minor, are damaging to your self-confidence. Luckily, dental bonding restores a smile without any pain or discomfort during the procedure. At Cashion Dental, our goal is to allow you to show off your new smile proudly.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding, or tooth bonding, is fixing chips or cracks with a soft composite resin. This material is extremely pliable, meaning the dentist will easily shape it to match the size and shape of your cavity.
Additionally, we can polish these to offer a natural-looking bond. This means we can match your filler resin to the natural color of your enamel. No one will ever know you've had a bonding treatment!
What Should You Expect During a Dental Bonding Procedure?
A dental bonding procedure is straightforward and limited to a single visit. First, we'll use a conditioning gel to roughen the tooth, allowing the resin to adhere. Once the dentist applies the resin with satisfying resolve, it's hardened with ultraviolet light to keep it firmly in place.
A common mistake is interchanging bondings and fillings. While similar, these two have separate aims. Fillings are meant to plug a cavity while bondings are meant to hold a compromised tooth together. These two are very different and the process for both differs greatly.
What are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding has many great benefits other than making your smile whole again. Here are some exciting things this treatment offers:
