A Smiling CoupleIf you have unaligned teeth or gaps between them, you need not worry. There are many ways dentists can repair your teeth to give you a perfect smile. One of the alternative procedures today is bonding.

Bonding usually uses resin to restore any broken or cracked teeth. It can also be used to recolor, reshape them, and fill in the gaps. Unlike veneers that require you to visit the dentist several times, bonding is done in one visit. It is an affordable and fast solution to any issues you might have.

Below is some basic information about bonding.

The bonding process

During bonding, the dentist places composite resin filling at the front and the back of the teeth. Then it is covered with a plastic material which then bonds it to the already existing tooth.

After bonding, the dentist will color and shape the tooth, so it looks pleasant and beautiful. The procedure is short and only takes about 15 minutes to half an hour. Anesthesia is not necessary during the procedure.

Some of the imperfections that can easily be fixed using teeth bonding include:

  • Decayed teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discolored teeth.

Bonding can also be used to change the shape of teeth. Experts who perform bonding can also provide Invisalign in Canton.

When the procedure is finished, it is important to take care of the bonded teeth. One way of taking care of the teeth is by avoiding biting hard objects.
