About Dental Bonding
You might be wondering what this popular cosmetic procedure is all about. Well, in a nutshell, it’s about using a material to cover discolored or damaged teeth.
The dentist will apply a resin material to the tooth (or teeth) in question. This is a sturdy plastic substance that looks like the color of your own teeth. A blue light is then used to set the material on the tooth.
A Simple Process
A dental bonding procedure is less invasive than alternatives, such as a crown procedure. Also, it’s less complicated and done more quickly. A dental bond can generally be performed in one visit to your cosmetic dentist right here in Studio City.
Does it hurt?
Nope. Not at all. No anaesthesia necessary.
Taking Care of Bonds
You can expect most bonding to last from three to seven years. Remember that the composite resin is not as hard as your actual tooth enamel, so you do have to care for your bonds. If you like hard foods such as hard candies or nuts, a dental bonding could make eating these a little bit tricky. Biting down on hard foods like these could potentially cause the bond to chip or even break. Over time, the edge of the bond can also sometimes feel a bit rough. You may also begin to notice a slight unevenness when you bite down on food.
Overall, dental bonding offers plenty of benefits, but it’s not the right solution for everyone. To find out if you are a good candidate for dental bonding, we recommend you get a professional cosmetic dentist’s opinion.
