Dental Bonding

Dentist and assistant perfoming a dental bonding procedure on a female patientDental bonding is a simple and normally inexpensive process that can fix damage to your teeth by using composite material to fill in the affected spots on your tooth. The material can be shaped and formed to whatever is necessary before it is hardened, making it ideal for reshaping small areas on your teeth that have been damaged. Dental bonding does not usually require anesthesia, and in most, cases only a small amount of your tooth’s enamel may need to be removed to place the bonding material. If you have issues that you believe can be fixed with bonding material, call our professional team at Bravo Smile today and let us evaluate your needs.

What Is Dental Bonding Used For?

Dental bonding is best used for small or short-term cosmetic problems with your teeth. It is not very strong and is not made to bite down on or be under intense pressure, so dental bonding is perfect to fix cosmetic problems that are not in high-pressure areas of your mouth. Dental bonding will often be used to fix small chips or cracks in teeth because it can be shaped to exactly fit the area it needs to cover. It is often used in fillings to fill the hole created by the cavity and maintain the original shape of your natural tooth.

Bonding may also be used to fix gaps between your teeth or make uneven teeth look more straight. Since the color of bonding can be made to match the rest of your natural teeth, it can be used in any area of your mouth to correct a cosmetic issue and be unnoticeable. Fixing these issues may seem unnecessary, but aside from the cosmetic benefits even filling a small chip or crack in a tooth can expand your tooth’s lifespan and help with things such as chewing and biting.

How Can I Make My Bonding Last?

If you have had dental bonding work done, there are a few things you can do to make sure it lasts as long as possible before needing replacement. Practicing great oral hygiene is the best thing you can do to ensure the bonding lasts the entirety of its life span, as well as keeping regularly scheduled cleaning appointments as suggested by our dentists. You can also help the fixes last longer by avoiding very hard foods and candy, and not biting your nails.

Dental bonding is a majorly risk-free procedure that can be completed safely and quickly in our offices. Each bonding procedure will usually take no more than 90 minutes. There is also no downtime, meaning that you can go back to your normal activities as soon as you leave our offices. There is no wait time to eat or drink or do any of your other daily activities.

If you have damage to your teeth that you feel may be corrected with a dental bonding procedure, please do not hesitate to call us today at (971) 441-5987. At Bravo Smile, our caring team of professionals will be able to evaluate your teeth and can help recommend the best treatment option to fit your unique needs.
