Dental bonding is the process of applying a composite resinous material to the teeth and shaping it accordingly. It is used to restore the ideal shape and functionality of a severely damaged, worn-out, or misshapen tooth. We use tooth-colored composite resin for the purpose, which is biocompatible and highly customizable.
What are the applications of dental bonding?
Bonding can be used while restoring the following types of teeth:
Chipped or naturally misshapen: When you sustain oral trauma or bite into something too hard, your teeth could chip and look out of shape. In some cases, the teeth may be naturally misshapen. They can be restored to their ideal shape using composite bonding.
Cracked or broken: The teeth may break or crack when you have a bad fall or go through sports-related injuries. The cracks can be covered, and the tooth can be prevented from being extracted by composite bonding.
Severely discolored: In some instances of teeth discoloration, whitening methods do not yield the expected results. Hence, a tooth-colored resin can be bonded to the tooth to restore its aesthetics.
Excessive spacing: When the teeth are separated by large gaps, your smile may look quite displeasing. Dental bonding can be used to make the teeth evenly spaced.
