What Is the Purpose of Dental Bonding?

What Is the Purpose of Dental Bonding? from Johns Creek Dentistry in Johns Creek, GADental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the visible surfaces of teeth to protect the enamel from additional harm and achieve an ideal smile. The purpose of dental bonding is to address oral health or cosmetic concerns. Dental bonding is particularly useful for addressing issues with the more visible teeth at the front of the mouth.

Why dentists offer dental bonding treatment

There are numerous reasons that a dentist may recommend dental bonding treatment. These include repairing worn-down teeth enamel, fixing chips and cracks on teeth, filling in teeth gaps, lengthening short teeth, and restoring the ideal shade of visible teeth.

Repair worn-down enamel

Enamel can become worn down from improper oral hygiene practices, less-than-ideal dietary choices, and natural aging. When enamel becomes worn down and damaged, dental bonding provides a reliable restorative solution in many instances. For severe cavities and teeth damage, more extensive treatment may be necessary. However, bonding works well for many instances of minor to moderate cases of worn-down teeth enamel to front teeth.

Fix teeth chips and cracks

Dental bonding is often used to address teeth chips and cracks. In fact, many dentists find it to be the ideal combination of safety, quality results, and price for minor chips and cracks to the front teeth. The dental bonding material (a type of composite resin) can last for more than five years, and the material can be customized to match the ideal shade of adjacent teeth.

Fill spaces between teeth

In addition to oral health concerns, there are many cosmetic concerns that dental bonding can address. One common cosmetic concern that dental bonding can address is the spaces between teeth (teeth gaps). That said, large natural gaps may require orthodontic care, and gaps caused by teeth loss may require teeth replacement. However, for minor natural gaps, dental bonding can be useful because it is fast and minimally invasive compared to orthodontic braces or clear aligners.

Create an even smile

Teeth that are too short or slightly misshapen can create cosmetic concerns. Often, dentists recommend dental bonding for patients who are interested in cosmetic treatment to create a more symmetrical and attractive smile.

Restore the ideal shade of teeth

Perhaps the best way to deal with minor teeth stains is with professional, in-office teeth whitening. However, more severe stains may require more extensive treatment, such as dental bonding. Dentists often recommend dental bonding to create the ideal shade of natural front teeth without altering or removing the natural teeth enamel in a significant way.
