Achieve Your Perfect Smile

blogsOne of the least invasive dental procedures, dental bonding is a procedure which is done by applying resin to the tooth and bonding the material permanently to improve tooth composition and make your smile look even better. However, dental bonding in Edison, NJ still has a lot in store for those who are interested in getting it. But the question is: when should you consider bonding?

There are many conditions in which dental bonding can be an option. Among its purposes are the following:

  • Repairs chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth

  • Enhances the look of discolored teeth

  • Closes gaps in between the teeth

  • Makes the teeth appear longer

  • Changes teeth shape

  • Can be used as an alternative to silver amalgam fillings

  • Serves as protection for exposed tooth’s root when gums recede

Dental bonding offers a lot of advantages to the patient:

  • One of the easiest to perform and least expensive dental procedures

  • Only little post-treatment preparation is needed

  • Produces really natural outcome since material used will closely match your natural tooth color

  • Can be done in one office visit (unless a lot of teeth are involved)

  • Only a little amount of tooth structure is removed for the procedure

  • Anesthesia is not required (unless procedure is used to fill a cavity)

However, it also poses some disadvantages that patients should be aware of:

  • Not completely resistant to stains

  • The material for bonding does not last long and is not as strong as fillings, crowns, or veneers

  • The bonding materials may chip off from the tooth
