Dental Bonding
Smyrna, GA

Dental bonding falls in the restorative dentistry category. It is a simple restorative procedure we have effectively used at Reich Dental Center in Smyrna, GA on many patients to fix damaged teeth.

It involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to restore or cover up the damaged teeth. It is a good solution for problems such as broken or cracked teeth, decay, discoloration, and shortened height.

How Does the Dental Bonding Procedure Work?

The procedure is a straightforward one that takes just a single visit. The resin material is easily pliable and is shaped to match up against neighboring teeth. Our dentist begins by first examining teeth to see if bonding is the best solution.

Next, a suitable resin is color-matched. We will find a shade that should blend in well with the tooth being fixed, so the final result is flawless.

With the resin having been chosen, our dentist will then work on the tooth to slightly roughen its surface and provide a suitable surface onto which the resin can adhere.

If the resin is not being used as an alternative to amalgam fillings, chances are no anesthesia will be required. This should be a painless procedure.

We will coat the tooth with a conditioning liquid, after which our dentist will apply the putty-like resin. We take time to correctly shape this resin and then use a special ultraviolet light to harden the material.

Once it is solid, we further trim and file it down to get a more precise result. If the outcome is satisfactory, we then polish it to match up against other teeth. All this can be completed within the space of an hour.

What Are the Pros and Cons of Dental Bonding?

Given how easily the procedure is done, it is clearly a quick solution to a myriad of problems. Besides cracked, decayed or discolored teeth, bonding can also be used to fix small or worn teeth.

It can also help protect the exposed tooth root caused by gum recession. This aids not just appearance but also reduces sensitivity. The material used can help fill up missing gaps and lengthen noticeably short teeth.

With a skilled hand, the results can be quite good and make it difficult for anyone to know you have had work done.

It is also a very affordable dental procedure. The cost is kept down by speed and minimal resource use. An alternative like veneers requires more time and the use of a lab to build customized components.

The slight abrasion to the surface of the tooth means minimal removal of enamel before the resin is applied.

Other solutions like dental crowns require greater removal of the natural tooth to accommodate the restoration.

This better preservation of the natural tooth is great for keeping it strong and reduces sensitivity. It is also what makes anesthesia unnecessary for most bonding procedures.

On the downside, the bonding material is not as resistant to stains as crowns. More care must be taken to avoid staining.

This solution is also not as durable as crowns and veneers, lasting anywhere between 3-10 years.

It is not as strong and therefore more susceptible to cracking and breakage. You will need to be more vigilant in how you use your teeth to minimize the risk of damage.
