COMPOSITE BONDING

COMPOSITE BONDING

 

  • What is Composite Bonding

 

Composite bonding is a cosmetic procedure that improves the look of chipped, cracked, discoloured and misshapen teeth. It involves applying a composite resin material on a certain part of your teeth to help to improve the appearance of your teeth.

 

  • Why is Composite Bonding performed 

Dentist may recommend dental bonding to improve the appearance of teeth with the following conditions:

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth. 
  • Close space between teeth. 
  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth.
  • Protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.
  • Misshaped teeth.

 

  • Advantages:

LESS EXTENSIVE

Teeth bonding’s procedure is less complicated to compare to dental crowns and veneers. The dentists don’t usually see the need to put on anesthesia unless there is a possibility of pain when tending to a decayed tooth. Other than that, it should be pain free. Teeth bonding only gets rid of little portions of the dental enamel to make sure that the resin sticks better.

 

CHEAPER 

They may seem cheaper, the result is highly likely similar to those expensive ones. Furthermore, teeth bonding also costs less compared to dental crowns or veneers.

FAST

If you feel like you are time constrained and always at a rush, teeth bonding can be convenient for you since the procedure is usually fast and efficient. You only need to go for one visit. 

 

  • Disadvantages:

NOT AS STRONG AS NATURAL TEETH                                                                                  

One of the disadvantages of teeth bonding is that it uses a material known as composite resins. Though resin may be strong, it is still nothing compared to the natural tooth enamel.

It is also not as strong as to the porcelain that are applied in procedures such as dental crown or dental veneers. This means that you have to take precautionary measures in eating since there is a possibility that the bond may break or chip due to careless biting to teeth.

 

SHORTER TERM OF LIFE                                                                          

Since the bond easily breaks because of the materials that are commonly used in teeth bonding, it is not a surprise that such procedure may not last longer as we intend it to be. Therefore, the period of the bond depends heavily on how you take care of your teeth and how you chew your food.

I can say from my own experience as a doctor, they are good. Appointments are kinda hard to get. Do you know why? You get what you want and what you need. Most likely you’ll leave the clinic with a smile on your face.
