Here in San Diego, Modern Dentistry has worked with many clients who have had dental bonding work done on their teeth. Many individuals opt for dental bonding because of its effective nature and the fact that it is usually cheaper than things like veneers or caps.
This process is easier than most dental procedures. It can typically be fulfilled in one visit to the dentist and doesn’t require the use of anesthesia.
The process itself involves using a composite that is roughly the same color as your teeth. From there, the dentist applies a liquid and the composite over top of that and then shapes the composite into place.
After that, a UV light is used, and the composite resin settles into place.
Dental Bonding can be thought of as a “small fix” in the dental world. If you have a defect in your tooth that isn’t related to the whole tooth, dental bonding is probably your best option. If you have a small gap in your smile that you don’t like, dental bonding can take care of that. Bonding fixes problems like gaps, a short tooth compared to others, or simply a slight crack in a tooth.
After dental bonding, you need to take good care of your teeth to maximize the benefits of the process you just went through.
You should brush your teeth twice daily and floss every day. You don’t want to bite down onto anything too hard, so activities like biting your nails should be out as well. Keeping in close contact with your dentist and setting up meetings twice a year also keep your teeth in the best shape they can be.
