Tooth bonding is a painless dental application used to repair chipped, fractured or discolored teeth. It uses a tooth-colored material called composite resin to make minor repairs to the teeth.
Bonding helps to
- Repair decayed, cracked or chipped teeth
- Fill a gap between teeth
- Offers protection to an exposed root
- Covers discoloration of teeth
Procedure involved in tooth bonding
In this method, the bonding material is color-matched to blend with the shade, translucency and texture of the rest of your teeth. Sometimes tooth bonding is used to change the shape of teeth by adding length to short teeth.
A little preparation is required for dental bonding. Anesthesia is usually not given unless your teeth are very sensitive. In such cases, your dentist will give you anesthesia so that you do not feel the pain while filling or repairing your decayed or cracked tooth with the bonding material is done.
Later the surface of your tooth will be slightly roughened. A conditioning liquid will be applied on the surface of the teeth which will help to attach the material to it. The tooth-colored bonding material is then applied, molded and smoothed to required shape. Afterwards, ultraviolet light is used to harden the bonding material. Additional shaping may be done to shape the surface of the tooth.
