All You Need To Know About Dental Bonding

A chipped or a broken tooth is something that nobody wants to live with. It not just makes your smile look bad but also, hampers your self esteem. But, the good news is that there is a miracle by which it can be fixed, and that miracle of modern dental science is-‘Dental Bonding’. Dental bonding is a fast comfortable option by which you can enhance your smile dramatically. Many patients who come to Ridgetop Dental’s state-of-the-art Northern Virginia dental clinic with chipped, stained or broken teeth get their teeth fixed using this wonderful procedure. So, let’s find out what is ‘dental Bonding’ and how can it be beneficial for you?

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve person’s smile.

Which conditions can be corrected by dental bonding?

  • To repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discoloured teeth
  • To close spaces between teeth
  • To make teeth look longer
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede

How is it done?

With cosmetic bonding, the damaged tooth’s surface is prepared with an etching solution. This solution helps the bonding material, a resin-based composite, to adhere to your tooth. The color of the resin-base composite is matched to your teeth, restoring your smile to its natural beauty. The resin is applied and contoured to the shape needed before hardening. It is cured with a special light and sometimes through a chemical process. Once hardened and complete, the bonded tooth is smoothed and polished to a perfect shine. Make sure you visit a leading dentist in Ashburn VA to ensure the materials used and the contouring process is of high quality for best results.
