What is Dental Bonding?

The tooth-colored resin material application over the tooth’s surface to treat dental problems such as chipping, repairing damaged teeth, teeth spacing, teeth alignment, or discolouration of the teeth is known as dental bonding.

Resin is a safe-to-use material shaped to correct various issues of the teeth. A special light is used to harden the resin over the tooth. It binds the resin with the tooth to give a natural look and restore an individual’s smile.

What are the Types of Oral Issues that Can be Fixed by Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding can solve different types of dental issues. These may include:

Short Teeth

Short Teeth-Unpleasant variations in teeth size-unproportioned tooth size-hoppers crossing dentist

Dental bonding can elongate the teeth’ length and bring it to level with the other teeth or usable length.

Chipped Teeth

If you have slightly misaligned teeth, our amazing dentists can fix it with dental bonding. They add dental bonding in a way that creates the illusion of perfectly aligned teeth.

Teeth Spacing

Teeth Spacing

If you have mildly spaced-out teeth, then dental bonding is a solution to this problem. However, for spaces that are too far, our dentists suggest tooth filling.

Discoloured Teeth

Discoloured Teeth

Discoloured teeth can also get fixed with dental bonding to make them look whiter and brighter.

How is the Process of Dental Bonding Performed?

It may take up to an hour to complete the process of dental bonding. It is if a single tooth requires rectification. However, if more than one tooth needs dental bonding, more than one dental visit needs to be scheduled.
Important:Tea, coffee, alcohol, and tobacco products contain substances that easily stain the resin. Therefore, if you have undergone dental bonding, you must abstain from all these things for at least 48 hours after the treatment.

Our Dentist Checks for Suitability

Our Dentist Checks for Suitability

On your visit to Hoppers Crossing Family Dentist, we will schedule a consultation session with our dentist to diagnose your condition. The dentist then determines the suitability and effectiveness of dental bonding for your condition. If you have a more severe condition that dental bonding can’t fix, they will advise a different and more advanced solution. Some patients may also be suffering from extreme tooth decay, which may also be an obstacle in performing dental bonding successfully.

Check for the Right Shade

Check for the Right Shade

Once our dentist clears you for dental bonding, they will select the resin’s shade that exactly matches your existing teeth to give you a natural look. Our dentists are both skilled and caring. They like to work with their patients. They will select a shade with your approval to ensure you get the look desired by you.

Scour the Surface

Scour the Surface

After selecting the resin colour, our dentist would abrade the teeth surface to make it rough. The rough surface helps bond the adhesive to the teeth firmly, which the dentist applies after rubbing the surface of teeth. Once the bonding is complete, a conditioning liquid is coated over the teeth.

Resin Application

Resin Application

Once your tooth/teeth are ready, our dentist will proceed with the application of resin. The resin is carefully moulded into the desired shape and smoothened to look like natural teeth. The resin is exposed to blue UV light to harden it. When the resin is hardened, our dentist trims and polishes it and adds any final touches. The final result is natural-looking beautiful tooth/teeth.

Maintaining Teeth After Undergoing Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an excellent alternative to treat small cosmetic issues. However, it is more vulnerable to chipping and staining when compared to other forms of cosmetic dentistry. Our dentists recommend that the patients take more care of their bonded teeth to uphold their integrity and look to last them for years to come.

Tips to Maintain Dental Bonding

Our dentists at Hoppers Crossing Family Dentist recommend the following tips to patients who have undergone dental bonding:

Limited consumption of tea, coffee, red wine, and similar foods can easily stain the resin

If you are in the habit of smoking, then it is advised that you quit smoking. Smoking can also cause the resin to discolour or stain.
