What Is Dental Bonding, And What Can It Treat?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure which uses dental resin to reshape your teeth. Dental resin is matched to the color of your teeth, and then Dr. Friberg applies it to each tooth, and shapes it to match your natural smile.
Dental bonding can be used to treat most cosmetic issues, from gaps in your smile to stains, misshapen teeth, and even slightly-damaged and chipped teeth. However, it cannot be used if you have serious oral health issues like decayed teeth, and it is also not recommended if you have a malpositioned jaw or other orthodontic problems.
Understanding The Dental Bonding Process
Dental bonding takes only a single appointment, and is completely non-invasive. First, your mouth will be cleaned. You may be numbed if you want, but the procedure does not require any drilling of your enamel, so most patients do not choose to be numbed.
Then, Dr. Friberg will use a special mild acid solution to “etch” your teeth. This provides the resin with a strong hold. Next, he will choose a dental resin which matches your surrounding teeth perfectly, and apply the material to your tooth, sculpting it into the proper shape.
After this, Dr. Friberg will harden the resin with a special UV light. Once the resin has hardened, he will trim it and refine its shape further, until it looks just like a perfect, natural tooth. Finally, the tooth will be buffed and polished, completing the procedure.
The Benefits Of Dental Bonding
Wondering if dental bonding is right for you? This cosmetic treatment has a number of unique benefits. Take a look at them now.
- Affordable – Dental bonding is one of the most inexpensive ways to restore your smile, especially compared to alternatives like porcelain veneers. This makes it a great choice if you would like a better smile, but are on a tight budget.
- Non-invasive – Dental bonding requires no drilling or removal of your natural enamel, so it’s totally non-invasive. You won’t have to worry about any pain or discomfort throughout the treatment process.
- Instant results – Unlike alternative treatments like veneers, bonding can be done in just a single appointment, and you can often have multiple teeth bonded in one appointment. This allows you to restore your smile more quickly.
