Everything You Need To Know About Dental Bonding

If you’re interested in dental bonding in Apex from Cardinal Family Dentistry, you may have a few questions about the process. In this blog, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about the procedure. Get answers to a few FAQs below, and feel free to get in touch with our team if you have further questions about dental bonding.

What Is Dental Bonding/Tooth Bonding?

Dental bonding, also sometimes called “tooth bonding,” is the process of using dental composite to reshape your teeth to correct cosmetic flaws like gaps in your smile, minor chips, misshapen teeth, and stained teeth.

In the process, Dr. Barker will choose a tooth-colored composite resin, then prepare your teeth and apply the resin to your enamel, reshaping and trimming it to create a perfectly-shaped, natural-looking tooth. 

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding delivers very fast results. You can restore multiple teeth in a single 1-2 hour appointment at Cardinal Family Dental, and enjoy a brighter, more beautiful smile right away. 

Treatment with dental bonding is also relatively affordable compared to veneers, so it’s a good choice if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on cosmetic care. 

In addition, bonding is very versatile, and it can be used to correct a wide variety of cosmetic flaws in your smile. Bonding, along with other cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening, can completely restore your smile, your appearance, and your self-confidence.

What Are The Risks Of Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding has no risks. The process is non-invasive and does not involve the removal of any enamel, and can usually be delivered without even numbing your mouth. There are no complications, risks, or dangers to worry about with dental bonding at Cardinal Family Dentistry.

Why Would Dental Bonding Be Recommended Over Other Procedures?

Dental bonding is less expensive than veneers, so it may be a good choice if you are on a tight budget. It’s also faster and the treatment is reversible, so it could be a good option if you don’t like the idea of an irreversible treatment like veneers.

In addition, bonding can be used to treat teeth that are severely stained and can’t be whitened with teeth whitening. The bonding material can cover up and restore the tooth. To find out if bonding is right for you, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Barker.

How Do I Care For My Teeth After Receiving Treatment? 

You can treat your bonded teeth just like natural teeth. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once per day, see Dr. Barker for an appointment every six months, and avoid doing things that could damage your teeth like chewing non-food objects or chewing hard foods (ice, almonds) with your bonded teeth. That’s it!
