Bonding Treatment

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying specialized filling materials to the visible front surface of teeth. These materials come in various colors to match the natural shade of teeth and have a glossy appearance when polished. Dental bonding is commonly used to enhance the shape, color, and overall appearance of teeth. It can also be used to treat existing tooth decay, providing a comprehensive smile makeover in a single dental appointment.

What are the reasons for bonding application?

Dental bonding is a convenient and effective method for enhancing one’s smile. While it may not be suitable for addressing all aesthetic concerns, it can deliver satisfying results in appropriate cases with just a single dental visit. However, it’s important to note that severe issues related to tooth position, shape, color, and excessive wear from grinding may limit the effectiveness of dental bonding for rehabilitation purposes.

What dental issues can be addressed through bonding treatment?

Mild problems in tooth position, decay, color, shape, and form can be addressed with bonding treatment.

How long does a bonding treatment procedure typically take?

A bonding treatment is typically completed in a single appointment. The duration of the treatment can vary depending on the severity of the case and the number of teeth involved. On average, it takes around 30 minutes per tooth. In some cases, it may be necessary to create a mockup model of the patient’s teeth through an impression. This allows for the design of a silicon index, which can be placed on the patient’s teeth as a reference guide during the dental bonding procedure, ensuring the desired form and shape. The creation of a silicon index involves taking an impression of the teeth and capturing a set of photos showcasing the patient’s smile. This additional step typically takes around 10 minutes, resulting in an increase in the number of appointments required to two.

Is dental bonding a painful procedure?

Dental bonding is generally not a painful procedure. In cases where manipulation is required in areas that may cause sensitivity, local anesthesia can be administered to ensure comfort. However, in most cases, the procedure only involves minimal manipulation of the front surface of the teeth, which typically does not result in sensitivity or discomfort.

How long can I expect the results of dental bonding to last?

The results of dental bonding may not be as durable as other treatment options like zirconium crowns. Factors such as teeth grinding and excessive force can potentially lead to fractures in the bonding material. However, with proper aftercare and regular check-ups to address any habits that may impact the bonding, it is possible to achieve long-lasting results. It’s important to note that dental bonding is a more affordable option for enhancing one’s smile, but it does come with certain risks such as the gradual loss of its glossy appearance over time.

Are there any special care instructions for maintaining bonded teeth?

Yes, routine check-ups can be crucial to maintaining longevity of the result of the treatment.

Can dental bonding be used to close gaps between teeth?

Definitely! Dental bonding can be a very effective method for closing gaps between teeth.

Can dental bonding fix chipped or cracked teeth?

In most cases, dental bonding effectively addresses any problems related to cracks and chipping.

How does dental bonding compare to other cosmetic dental treatments, such as veneers or crowns?

Dental bonding offers several advantages when compared to other cosmetic dental treatments. It allows for achieving desired results in a single appointment, as the treatment is performed directly by the dentist without the need for a laboratory. This enables direct communication between the patient and dentist, facilitating modifications to treatment goals as needed. However, it’s important to note that durability can be a disadvantage of dental bonding when compared to other options such as zirconium crowns.

How much does it cost to get a bonding treatment?

Dental bonding can be an affordable option for the smile that we desire. We can consider a price of 50 euros per tooth.
