Benefits of Tooth Bonding
Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment that can change the shape, color, and position of your teeth. We use a bonding material that can also be color-matched to the color of teeth for a natural look. Tooth bonding protects teeth from further damage and restores the dental structure for a more even bite. In addition, dental bonding treatment is a more economical treatment option than porcelain veneers or other cosmetic solutions. You can receive tooth bonding in just one visit to our dental office.
Dental Bonding Treatment
Before treatment, Dr. Boenning or Dr. Dancykier will review your dental history, personal budget, and oral health goals to determine if tooth bonding is right for you. To begin, we will prepare any teeth receiving treatment by removing a small amount of tooth enamel. This is done to make sure that the bonding material properly adheres to the tooth. Then, a biocomposite material is shaped and sculpted onto the tooth into the desired shape and size and color-matched for a natural look. Finally, we use a special light to ensure the bonding material is cured onto teeth.
Dental Bonding vs Dental Veneers
Many patients with damaged or discolored teeth like weigh all their options. Dental bonding as well as dental veneers are suitable solutions for these dental problems. But what is the difference between the two? Both will resemble natural teeth and blend in with the rest of your teeth. However, aside from that, they are very different.
Dental bonding is more affordable and our dentists can complete the treatment during one dentist appointment. It is also not permanent and your dentist will need to be replace them sooner than dental veneers. The bonding material used it not stain-resistant and may darken over time. However, if you have minimal damage, such as small chip or stain, bonding is an excellent fix.
Dental veneers on the other hand are more expensive and require several visits to complete. They are a permanent dental restoration since a dentist must alter your teeth to accommodate them. They are significantly more durable and can last up to 25 years if properly cared for. If you are looking for a long-last fix to your dental problems, dental veneers may be the way to go.
