Dental Bonding Details
Many patients have a lot of questions when it concerns medical procedures and even more so with regard to dental procedures. One question that many patients are happy to hear answered is that dental bonding requires no sedation and is noninvasive. The resin is simply prepared and applied to the area in need of treatment. It can be colored to match the patient’s teeth and shaped, so it does not appear conspicuous to others.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
In many cases, when patients come in to have a cavity filled, a traditional filling is simply not adequate to properly treat it. In those cases, dental bonding is a great option and one widely relied upon. After the tooth decay has been removed from the tooth, the resin is prepared and pressed into the appropriate place, bonding with the surfacing of the tooth. It restores lost functionality and takes care of the decay in the tooth. Patients who have gaps between their teeth and thought it would take some kind of orthodontic appliance to fix will be delighted to hear that dental bonding can take care of this too.
Good vs Bad of Dental Bonding
There are always positive and negative aspects of any treatment offered. With dental bonding that is no different. It is incredibly affordable and can be completed in a single 1-hour appointment, though the actual application of the bonding resin takes less than fifteen minutes. There is no pain associated with this dental procedure with the results lasting a long time and providing great appeal. It should be noted however that patients need to know that resin can become stained over time. This is due to its porous nature. It can also chip over time because it is not as durable as natural tooth enamel.
