- to change the shape of teeth of make them look longer As a cosmetic alternative to fillings
- to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that may have been exposed by receding gums
How is the bonding prodecure at GriDent?
Our experts at GriDent will examine your tooth and use the dental shade guide to select the composite resin color that will match the color of your teeth. Anesthesia may or may not be applied, depending on the condition of your tooth. In most cases, anesthesia is not necessary for bonding.
Then, the surface of the tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid applied to help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored resin will be applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape, and laser will be used to harden the material once the tooth has been shaped. After a little while, our dentist will finish the shaping after having checked your bite, and then polish the tooth. The total dental bonding procedure takes 30-60 min to complete.
What are the benefits of dental bondings?
Dental bonding is a popular procedure because it offers multiple important benefits:
• It is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dentistry treatments
• It can be done in one office visit in an hour or less
• Unlike veneers and crowns, it does not involve substantial tooth enamel removal
• Usually, anesthesia is not needed for bonding.
After Care – What to do?
Direct composite bonding restorations can provide a healthy and beautiful smile for many years, but it is important to follow GriDent’s recommendations for proper oral hygiene, as well as avoid habits that could damage your restorations. Brush at least twice a day, floss once a day and schedule regular visits to GriDent for routine examinations and cleanings.
Refrain from habits such as biting your fingernails and chewing on pens, ice or other hard objects, since direct composite bonding materials are prone to chipping. We suggest to return to the office if you notice any sharp edges on the bonded tooth or teeth, or if the tooth feels differently when you bite down.
