Bonding is a procedure in which tooth coloured resin-material (durable plastic) is used to repair decayed, fractured or discoloured teeth. A special light is used to harden the material, which "Bonds" the material to the tooth. Bonding can restore your smile while giving you confidence and a self-esteem boost. Bonding is a less expensive cosmetic dental procedure to improve/change the aesthetics of your smile. In most cases, this can be done in one visit, usually without anesthesia, unless your Cosmetic Dentist is repairing a decayed tooth.
Bonding can last several years before it needs to be repaired. How long it lasts depends on your oral habits and how much bonding was done. Ask your Cosmetic Dentist on tips to care for your teeth.
If you are considering Bonding your anterior teeth and know you are a bruxer (grinder), a night guard should be fabricated to protect your teeth from chipping, breaking, fracturing. If you are unsure if you are a bruxer, consult with your Cosmetic Dentist today.
