One of the most overlooked dental procedures is also one of the most widely used. It is a simple process and inexpensive. It can take care of a wide variety of issues in a single office visit with us. While patients are looking for solutions to their crooked or misaligned teeth, they oftentimes forget about dental bonding. It is one of the least invasive of all restorative dental procedures requiring no anesthesia and can take as little as fifteen minutes to complete.
Dental Bonding Details
One of the biggest benefits of dental bonding, especially for those patients with anxiety over dental procedures, is it is completely non-invasive and requires no dental sedation. There is no pain and no discomfort whatsoever associated with the procedure. A resin is mixed in the office and applied to the area in need of treatment. It can be tinted to match the surrounding teeth and shaped, so it looks as if it is part of the patient's natural smile. There are no needles and no scraping. It is that simple.
One huge benefit is that when patients have a cavity that needs to be filled but the cavity is too large or in a complicated location, dental bonding can be the answer. The site can be prepared by removing all the bacteria and then the resin is pressed into the pocket adhering to the teeth stopping the decay from continuing. It is important to follow a dental bonding procedure to avoid chewing fingernails and pen caps and to avoid eating sticky foods which might pull the bonding material of the teeth.
While this is a huge benefit and an inexpensive option, it should be noted that the bonding resin used can become stained over time by drinking coffee and tea. It may also need to be replaced over time as well as it can wear out. However, we can help create a long-lasting dental bond through proper care directions at your next visit.
