Dental bonding has grown in popularity over time because it is a simple and primarily painless procedure. However, a lot of people don’t even know what is involved in dental bonding procedures so being aware may help others better understand what other options they do have.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that dental bonding is convenient and affordable, making it an attractive resolution for a few different dental issues. Today we will go over dental bonding, and how it can best benefit someone seeking a convenient and affordable method of treatment.
Having a dental bonding procedure done can be convenient for people who are experiencing issues with a tooth or even with multiple teeth. Below are a few conditions that dental bonding can be conveniently used to treat:
- Decayed teeth
- Improvement of the color of stained or discolored teeth
- Alter the shape of a tooth
- The closing of spaces between teeth
- Severely chipped or cracked teeth
A dental bonding procedure is not as involved as some other restorative dental procedures. The process is convenient because it doesn’t require a lot of recovery time either. The procedure itself may only last 30-45 minutes, thus making it convenient for people who lead busy lives.
A person will go into their dentist and have the surface of their tooth roughened in order for the resin to stick. After a resin color is chosen, the dentist will apply it to the surface and mold it in order for it to stay. Once the resin is molded on, a dentist then smooths it out so that it appears natural. The last step involves a high UV ray light or laser that hardens the resin, thus making it stick.
Because dental bonding doesn’t require customizable appliances, it makes for a much more affordable procedure. Unlike crowns or even veneers, dental bonding only requires that of the resin and the dentist’s work, making it easier on the wallet. Dental repairs can be pricey and a lot of people often opt not to have work done because they can’t afford it. But, dental bonding allows a person to have their teeth restored while also saving a few bucks.
Dental bonding is relatively new to the industry, it hasn’t been around as long as crowns or fillings have. But, this isn’t to say that it is any less effective. Having a dental bonding procedure done not only helps restore certain teeth but it saves you time and money, being convenient and affordable.
