Dental bonding or teeth bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that is widely used for small and short-term cosmetic changes through the use of composite resin. The material is applied onto the target teeth and hardened with a special light, bonding it together with the teeth to repair the damages.
Dental bonding is commonly used for:
Repair chipped or cracked teeth
Restore discolored teeth
Close the gap between teeth without resorting to orthodontic measures
Increase the length of shorter teeth to make it consistent with the other teeth
Dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures mainly due to the low prices of the materials used. However, the disadvantage is that composite resin is not a very strong material, hence it might chip or crack when you are in the middle of biting some hard food.
Dental bonding is painless and hence doesn't require the use of anesthesia. While dental bonding is a very simple procedure that can be readily done in an hour, it is important to remember that it is just a cosmetic dental procedure so it is not suitable to repair teeth that are severely damaged. Therefore, make sure that you consult a qualified dentist to check if it is suitable for you.
