What Does Tooth Bonding Treat?

Bonding is a versatile fix that can address a wide range of minor teeth issues, such as: Cracks, Chips, Gaps, Spacing and Discolouration

How Is the Tooth Bonded?

Bonding often needs very little preparation, and anesthesia is usually unnecessary. Dr. Dimitrov will use a shade guide to match the composite resin to as close to the colour of your tooth as possible.

Dr. Dimitrov will roughen the tooth’s surface and apply a conditioning liquid. This liquid helps the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-coloured resin is applied, then moulded and smoothed to the desired shape. The bonding material is hardened with a bright light. After the material hardens, Dr. Dimitrov will continue to trim and shape the tooth, followed by polishing it to make it match the colouring of the tooth’s surface.

Dental bonding or teeth bonding takes about 30 – 60 minutes per tooth to complete.

What Are the Benefits of Tooth Bonding?

The advantage of bonding is that it is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. Unlike veneers or crowns, bondings are done in the office and not sent to a lab. However, bonding does not resist stains as well as crowns. In addition, bonding materials do not last as long as crowns, veneers, or fillings. Talk to Dr. Dimitrov about the best cosmetic approach for you.

Common Myths of Tooth Bonding

Myth 1: Tooth bonding is only for aesthetic purposes.

Fact: While tooth bonding is commonly used for cosmetic reasons, such as repairing chipped or discoloured teeth, it also offers functional benefits. Bonding is used to restore the structure of damaged teeth, fill cavities in some instances, and can be used to improve bite alignment. Bonding is a versatile treatment that combines both aesthetic and functional aspects.

Myth 2: Tooth bonding is painful and requires anesthesia

Fact: Tooth bonding is a relatively painless procedure; in most cases, anesthesia is unnecessary. The process involves applying a composite resin material to the tooth’s surface and sculpting it to the desired shape. Patients can experience minimal discomfort; anesthesia is only used when treating deep cavities or sensitive areas.

Myth 3: Tooth Bonding is a temporary solution

Fact: While it’s true that tooth bonding may not last as long as some other dental restorations, such as dental implants or porcelain veneers, it can provide lasting results with proper care. With good oral hygiene practices, dietary habits, and regular dental check-ups, bonded teeth can last several years before requiring any touch-ups or replacements. Proper care prolongs the lifespan of bonded teeth.

Myth 4: Bonded teeth require special maintenance

Fact: Bonded teeth do not demand extensive maintenance. They can be cared for in the same way as natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental visits are crucial for maintaining oral health and prolonging the lifespan of bonded teeth. You should be careful when you bite or chew on hard objects such as ice or almonds. In addition, you should avoid using your teeth as tools, such as riping packages, to prevent damage.

Myth 5: Tooth Bonding is a one-size-fits-all solution

Fact: Tooth bonding is a highly customizable procedure. The composite resin material that is used can be colour-matched to your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend. The procedure is tailored to address specific concerns, such as filling gaps, repairing chips, or improving tooth shape. Dr. Dimitrov will thoroughly examine and consult to determine if tooth bonding is the right solution for your unique dental needs. Each case is unique, and the treatment plan will be personalized to achieve the best possible outcome for your situation.
