Why Choose Dental Bonding? from Roderick A. Garcia, DMD PC in Albuquerque, NMDental bonding is a great way to address oral health and cosmetic issues like damaged enamel and chipped or cracked teeth. Read on to learn more about dental bonding. Dental bonding is minimally invasive and considered safe for patients.

Reasons to consider dental bonding to restore damaged teeth

Every patient should evaluate all available types of restorative dentistry to address their specific oral health concerns during a consultation visit with their dentist. However, dental bonding is often recommended more often than alternative solutions for the following reasons.

Dental bonding can fix a range of oral health concerns

There are a number of reasons why a dentist may recommend dental bonding. This procedure is generally used to address either oral health or cosmetic concerns. The most common concerns that dental bonding is used to address include but are not limited to:

  • Damaged enamel
  • Tooth chips and cracks
  • Short teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Severe dental stains

The best way to determine whether dental bonding or an alternative treatment solution is most appropriate is to schedule a consultation visit to discuss treatment goals and all available treatment solutions.

Dental bonding offers cosmetic benefits as well

Composite bonding is most often used on front teeth that are more visible because the resin material used in the procedure is strong enough to handle the daily pressures front teeth receive while also providing a natural appearance that blends in well with adjacent teeth. The dentist can also ensure each tooth looks smooth, as well.

The dental bonding procedure is minimally invasive

Most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during the dental bonding procedure. The procedure only takes 30 minutes to an hour on average to complete, and the patient can typically return home right after treatment without any limitations.

No enamel is removed during the dental bonding procedure

One concern that patients have with dental veneers (an alternative solution to dental bonding) is that dental enamel is often removed from the visible surface of the tooth to allow for a comfortable and snug fit for the veneers. This is not typically required with dental bonding. This means that the bonding procedure is not considered a permanent and irreversible procedure in the same way as veneers.

The composite resin material can last for a number of years

A composite resin material is used for dental bonding. This provides a natural-looking shade for the visible front teeth. The material is also durable and can last for more than five years when the patient cares for their smile properly.
