What is Dental Bonding?

Losing your confidence because of issues with cracked, chipped, and decayed tooth? Don’t worry; we offer dental bonding at Pacific Sky Dental! Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that exists to reshape the tooth caused by the mentioned problems. This is considered to be a cost-efficient procedure because it is less expensive than crowns and veneers. Dental bonding process is also non-complex, and it does not require sedation unless a cavity is being filled.

Tooth bonding is perfect for those who are insecure with the imperfections of their teeth. This is especially beneficial for those who want to fix small issues like gaps or problems with the teeth size.

The procedure behind dental bonding

First, the dentist will use a shade guide to choose the color of the composite resin that matches the natural teeth. The dentist will roughen the surface of the tooth then apply a liquid that allows the bonding agent to stick to the tooth. Once the tooth-colored resin is applied over the liquid bonding agent, the tooth will be shaped by the dentist and then cured by ultraviolet light. If necessary, the dentist can further shape the tooth after the resin has hardened. 

How to take care of bonded teeth

Brushing twice a day and flossing daily, the way natural teeth are cleaned is enough to take care of bonded teeth. Also, one must remember that composite resin is not as strong as natural teeth; biting hard food must be avoided to prevent damage and injury. It is best to refrain from coffee, tea, and tobacco products for the first few days following the procedure. This is to avoid teeth stains as the material used is not stain-resistant. Lastly, a regular dental checkup is recommended every six months.
