Dental Bonding

woman smiling after dental bonding at Hometown Dental Sherman in Sherman, TXDental bonding is also known as tooth bonding. Dental bonding uses a soft pliable composite resin in order to repair minor cracks or chips on the teeth. The pliability of the resin allows our dentist to mold it into the desired shape then, to polish it to the perfect shade.

Our dentist at HomeTown Dental at Sherman uses the process of dental bonding for a number of dental applications.

What Can Dental Bonding Do?

Dental bonding offers a number of useful applications in dentistry. The composite resin can be used in order to repair small chips in teeth. It can also be used to disguise minor spacing problems. If a patient has a very minor gap between teeth, dental bonding can serve as an alternative to orthodontic measures. The spacing between your teeth can be closed, without the need to invest months of your time or orthodontia.

Composite resin can be colored to match the shade of the natural tooth. This makes it a great choice for filling cavities on visible teeth. The results are much more natural and aesthetically pleasing.

Because the composite resin can be colored to the desired shade, it can also be used to disguise some staining on teeth. There are a number of options for whitening teeth, but not all of them will be effective on certain types of stains. Teeth that are misshapen or shorter than their neighbors can benefit from composite resin. There are so many great cosmetic applications for composite resin. A specialized light will set the resin once it is in place then, the teeth will be cleaned and polished.

Does Dental Bonding Hurt?

The procedure for dental bonding is completely painless. Patients will not need any anesthesia for the duration of the procedure. Yet, it is important to always mention to our dentist if you feel any sensitivity or discomfort during your procedure.

Can Dental Bonding Be Used For Veneers?

Dental veneers, made from porcelain, are low maintenance and durable. They are the better solution than relying on dental bonding to overhaul the look of your teeth. Dental bonding is not as strong as the porcelain veneers are and it won’t give you the same naturally flawless look. It was designed to fix minor imperfections, not create entirely new teeth. For minor gaps and cracks, dental bonding is incredibly effective.

Are There Any Risks To Dental Bonding?

Composite resin is not as strong as the natural tooth is. It can chip or break if you bite or chew hard items or if you are injured. You will have to stop biting your nails and chewing on ice, as those habits could break or crack the resin.

Caring For Bonded Teeth

The material used for bonding is prone to stains, so be sure to limit consuming substances known for staining teeth. This could include coffee, tea and wine. Your bonded teeth should be brushed and flossed as you would your natural teeth. If you notice any sharpened edges or the bonded resin falls off of your teeth, be sure to call our office for further guidance.
