Do you have chipped, broken or discolored teeth? Are you thinking of getting them fixed? Then, ‘Dental Bonding’ can be the most convenient solution for you. Bonding process will repair your teeth with tooth-colored resin and unlike veneer treatment, this can be done in a single session.
Let me acknowledge you more about Dental Bonding in this writing.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a kind of cosmetic dental treatment -and not an oral surgery- where tooth-colored composite resin is applied on top of teeth to fix their shape or discoloration and to harden them. The resin used in this treatment- bonds to the affected tooth, that’s why this is called ‘bonding’. Although it is a very popular treatment, it can only work for minor problems. Probably for a slightly chipped or decayed tooth. This can be a good substitute for fillings, not dental implants.
So, if you have any minor issue, you can and you should think of having this treatment as this is time saving, cost effective and efficient.
Does Dental Bonding Have Any Risk Factors?
Dental bonding doesn’t really have any risk factors, side effects or anything like that. The only concerning matter can be- the resin composite used in the treatment is not usually as strong as your original teeth. This may get separated from your teeth if you chew something hard or have any minor accident. But the positive thing is- our patients have never faced any such situation till now. So, if you have the treatment done from Next Generation Dental, then you wouldn’t really have to worry about this. Also, the resin our expert dentists use, are quite stain resistant.
Pros Of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding has multiple benefits. Such as-
- Doesn’t need much time: Dental bonding is such a time-saving treatment. It is done inside the dentist’s office in just one sitting. Making multiple dentist appointments for months just for one treatment, may not sound convenient to most of the adult people, as they usually have a very tightly maintained schedule. So, this can be a very good option to fix minor teeth issues immediately.
- It is totally safe: The material used to repair teeth in this treatment is biocompatible. It is much safer than silver fillings as no toxic chemical is employed. It would be even better for your oral health to exchange your old fillings with these resin composites. In case you get dental bonding done on decaying teeth, the resin adhered to your teeth will help to prevent further bacteria attack and infection development.
- Natural look: Unlike dental fillings, bonding looks totally natural as it is done with tooth-colored composite. So, your affected teeth will look the same as the other teeth in your mouth if you take this treatment. Looking fine and healthy is a must for aesthetic purposes. So, having dental bonding is a hundred times better than those easily noticeable silver fillings.
Dental bonding is an easy and quick solution for slightly chipped, discolored or decayed teeth. As most people don’t have enough time to take lengthy treatments, this treatment can work in most cases. Another thing is, as it looks natural, it is definitely a far better option compared to dental fillings. But if you have enough time and are looking for a 100% permanent solution, there are other better options available for you.
