What Do You Know About Bonding?

Bonding is basically a dental procedure that involves using a tooth-colored resin or plastic for repairing the teeth. The procedure can be applied on teeth that have decay, are chipped or broken and/or experience discoloration. This particular dental procedure is referred to as bonding because the material starts bonding to the tooth. Compared to veneers, bonding is typically done in one visit.

In some cases, your dentist at Brighton Implant Clinic may recommend the use of veneers that can help in repairing teeth. Veneers are actually prepared in a lab and need a customized mould for achieving an appropriate fit.

Many patients prefer bonding because it’s considered a cost-effective and simple cosmetic dental treatment. The resin that is used in the procedure can be polished and shaped for matching the other teeth. Usually, bonding is employed for giving a chipped or discolored tooth a better look. It can further be used for closing spaces between teeth, making the teeth appear longer or changing the color or shape of the teeth.

There are cases when dentists may recommend this procedure as a means of protecting certain portion of the root of tooth that has been exposed while gums were receding. Once a patient has got the procedure done, he/she should consult the dentist if sharp edges are noticed on the teeth or if chewing or biting down feels strange. According to the dentists at Brighton Implant Clinic, the success of any dental procedure, including bonding depends on whether the patient is in safe hands or not. So, you have to make sure that your dentist is as reliable, professional and qualified as dentists here at Brighton Implant Clinic.
