How Does Dental Bonding Work?

Dental bonding uses a special type of dental resin to sculpt, reshape, and improve the appearance of one or more teeth. This resin is similar to the material used for tooth-colored dental fillings.

By applying resin directly to the outside of your tooth, Dr. Barker can improve the appearance of your tooth by covering up stains, enlarging the tooth, and ensuring it fits evenly with the rest of your mouth. Bonding is an excellent choice for people who may be self-conscious due to smile imperfections.

What Can I Expect From The Dental Bonding Treatment Process?

To begin the process, Dr. Barker will clean your mouth and apply a special liquid to the tooth to roughen its surface. This is necessary to provide a tight hold for the dental bonding material. Once your tooth has been prepared, she will select a resin material that matches the color of your teeth perfectly. This ensures a seamless appearance.

Next, Dr. Barker will apply several layers of resin to your tooth. Each layer will be shaped and sculpted with special tools, then hardened with UV light. Once the initial restoration is complete, she will use a dental drill to trim away any unnecessary material and finalize the appearance of your tooth.

After that, you’ll be sent home, or the process will repeat if you’re restoring more than one tooth. It takes about 30-60 minutes to treat each tooth, so it’s often possible to restore multiple teeth in a single appointment at Cardinal Family Dentistry.

What’s The Difference Between Dental Bonding And Veneers?

Dental bonding and veneers are quite similar. Both treatments are commonly used to correct cosmetic flaws in teeth, and offer excellent results when done by an experienced dentist in Apex like Dr. Barker.

There are some differences, though. The biggest difference is that veneers are not reversible. This is because your natural teeth need to be trimmed to make room for your veneers. This is not necessary for dental bonding. While it’s rare to reverse bonding treatment, it is possible to remove bonding and get your original smile back.

Veneers also take longer to get than dental bonding, requiring at least 2 appointments over a span of about 2-3 weeks. In contrast, bonding can be done in just a single appointment at Cardinal family Dentistry. Bonding is also less expensive than veneers, so it’s a better option if you’re on a budget.

However, it’s important to note that bonding is also less durable than veneers. Bonding usually lasts between 5-8 years, while veneers can last 10-20 years with proper care. Keep this in mind when choosing between these treatments.
