Here’s Why You Must Choose Dental Bonding to Repair Your Tooth

May 22, 2018 by Salt Lake Dental

Several oral treatments can repair your damaged teeth these days and dental bonding is one of them. It is a procedure which involves the application of a tooth-colored resin (plastic material) to a chipped, decayed or a fractured tooth to restore it. It is also used to improve the aesthetics of a discolored tooth.

There are quite a lot of benefits associated with dental bonding and we have spoken about them in this post. The points are elucidated below.

The Treatment is Done Within a Single Visit: 

A lot of dental procedures require more than one visit for the completion of the treatments. But, it is not the same with dental bonding because it just takes a single visit for the procedure to get done.

The Procedure is Less Invasive: 

Opting for a dental bonding could be a good choice if you are not comfortable with invasive oral treatments. You can also save a lot of tooth structure during a dental bonding as scraping off an excessive part is not required.

It Looks Like Your Natural Teeth: 

We have already elucidated above that a tooth-colored resin is used to apply to your tooth during a dental bonding, thus, it looks nothing short of your original teeth.

Gives a Boost to Your Oral Health: 

A damaged tooth can lead to many oral problems, but it can be prevented if the tooth is treated using dental bonding. It not only treats a broken, decayed or a fractured tooth but also bridges the gap between missing teeth which saves the neighboring teeth from shifting.

It Bonds to the Tooth Perfectly: 

The affected area is sealed perfectly with the dental bonding which restrains bacteria from damaging the tooth further. This way, the tooth is saved from getting decayed.

There are a few measures which you must follow after a dental bonding treatment if you want the effect to last longer.

  • You must not smoke or else your teeth can become discolored. Smoking can also cause several other oral diseases.
  • Brush and Floss twice a day.
  • Keep your tongue clean.
  • Don’t bite on anything hard.
  • Avoid drinking acidic beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine and so on.
  • Go for dental visits twice a year.
