Repair Your Teeth with Dental Bonding

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Perhaps you have a prominent chip or crack or perhaps your smile has become permanently discoloured. Dental bonding, also known as composite bonding, is a cosmetic dentistry treatment used to repair the appearance of teeth. Dental bonding can treat the appearance of discoloured, chipped or cracked teeth. It is also a popular option for replacing amalgam (silver) fillings as well as to close gaps between teeth, reshaping misaligned teeth and provide a straighter, more unified smile.

What are the Types of Oral Issues that Can be Fixed by Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding can solve different types of dental issues. These may include

As far as cosmetic dentistry goes, bonding is the most conservative treatment. There is a little alteration to your natural tooth structure and the treatment is reversible providing none of the tooth enamel is removed. The immediate results of dental bonding are seen by many patients as its main benefit. The other benefit is that the material used for dental bonding can be matched to the shade and colour of your natural teeth. This means, when you rejuvenate your smile with dental bonding, the restoration will look subtle and natural.

What is the Difference Between Dental Bonding and Porcelain Veneers?

Even though dental bonding and porcelain veneers are useful for cosmetic treatment, and they may to a certain extent be used for the same purpose, there is some difference between the two. Here are some of these differences:

Dental Bonding

Porcelain Veneers

Purpose

It can correct minor, aesthetic flaws
Can correct most aesthetic flaws

Chipping Tendency

Vulnerable to chipping
More robust and less vulnerable to chipping

Aesthetics

Good aesthetics
Excellent aesthetics because porcelain closely resembles teeth and are custom made by a skilled ceramist

Cost

Cheap and may not last long
Costly but lasts for several years

Stain/Discolouration Tendency

Vulnerable to stains and must be maintained regularly
It doesn’t get stained easily

Durability

It Will last for up to 5 years
It Will last more than ten years

Treatment Time

Dental bonding requires just a single visit (if the change required is for just a single tooth)
Porcelain veneers require more time and take place over multiple visits.

The Procedure

When you visit one of our Access Dental Care dental practices in Perth, we will first assess your oral health and determine the best way to treat your oral condition. Prior to treatment, if you have an oral health issue such as gum disease this must first be treated.

If you are in good dental health, a local anaesthetic will be administered. Generally speaking, dental bonding does not require anaesthesia. In order to keep your tooth dry a rubber dam will be placed around it to prevent saliva interfering with the treatment.

After your tooth is thoroughly cleaning of all decay, food debris and tartar, it will be prepared using a gel that roughens the surface of the tooth. A bonding agent is applied to the roughened surface and set using an ultraviolet light (similar to teeth whitening). The composite is then applied in layers and set at each stage. This process will be repeated until the desired shape is achieved. The last stage of this treatment is to polish the restoration to achieve the final shape and smooth finish. The entire procedure can be achieved in just one appointment.

Bonding is a more conservative alternative to veneers, and while composite bonding may not last as long as veneers, results can be achieved in just one appointment.

Maintaining Teeth After Undergoing Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an excellent alternative to treat small cosmetic issues. However, it is more vulnerable to chipping and staining when compared to other forms of cosmetic dentistry. Our dentists recommend that the patients take more care of their bonded teeth to uphold their integrity and look to last them for years to come.

Tips to Maintain Dental Bonding

Our dentists at Access Dental Care in Perth will recommend the following tips to patients who have undergone dental bonding:

Limited consumption of tea, coffee, red wine, and similar foods can easily stain the resin

If you are in the habit of smoking, then it is advised that you quit smoking. Smoking can also cause the resin to discolour or stain.

Patients must also avoid chewing or biting down on hard objects such as ice, pens, etc.

You must schedule regular dental visits as advised by our dentist at Ormond Dental. It will help in locating the problems, if any, quickly. If you find bite problems or if your dental bonding has chipped or cracked, you must immediately get in touch with us. Our excellent dentist will ensure they touch up the fault and fix the issue at an earlier stage so you may not have to face any discomfort.
