Dental bonding is a resurfacing treatment to repair damaged or discolored teeth. Dental bonding procedures apply a tooth-colored resin material to the enamel surface of teeth with adhesives and a high-intensity curing light. Bonding is primarily used for cosmetic purposes – to close large gaps or spaces between teeth or to clean stains and repair discoloration on your tooth’s enamel surface. SEDA dentists may also recommend dental bonding treatments to fix cavities near the gum line.
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
Over time teeth may become damaged or stained as a result of decay, chewing, or from eating or drinking specific foods or liquids. One method used by SEDA dentists to treat these kinds of damage is through a dental resurfacing process called dental bonding.
There are a number of different uses for dental bonding.
Talk with our dental professionals today to learn how dental bonding can:
- Repair teeth that are decaying
- Fill cavities
- Repair a cracked or chipped tooth
- Make teeth look longer or change the shape of the teeth
- Protect the tooth’s root if it has been exposed
- Treat stains
Your teeth are restored to a natural look and feel, they are stronger and the tooth is protected.
Dental bonding is a popular alternative treatment to crowns for many people because it is less time consuming and is often completed in a single visit to one of our dental clinics. Though bonding is a cost-effective alternative, it is not as durable as a crown or veneer and is better suited to front teeth.
