What is meant by dental bonding?
Cosmetic bonding can give dramatic results in as little as an hour.
Dental bonding refers to the restorative procedures carried out with the help of plastic restorative materials which bond with the acid treated tooth surfaces in an attempt to modify and correct minor aesthetic defects of anterior teeth. In addition to front teeth, dental bonding materials have been manufactured for filling defects in the posterior teeth as well.
Which dental materials are used in dental bonding?
Dental resin composite materials are most often employed for dental bonding procedures. Dental resin composites are, in fact, a mixture of plastic resin cement, having glass filler particles incorporated in them. These glass fillers provide the required strength and translucency to the mixture in order to match the natural color of teeth.
How are these dental bonding materials applied to the surface of teeth?
Dr. Moyer will carry out a comprehensive assessment of the carious, stained, chipped, or discolored tooth surface in order to formulate an evaluation for treatment planning. An informed consent will be taken before the commencement of the procedure. Minor or no tooth preparation will be performed if needed and the dried tooth surface is acid-etched. After acid treatment of the tooth, the bonding material is applied and cured with a curing light. Dental bonding composite resin material is placed on the surface of the tooth and shaped following the morphology of surface being restored. Curing of the resin composite is done and the surface is finished and re-bonded.
