If you have a cracked or chipped tooth or teeth, you may be a candidate for dental bonding. Dental bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored plastic adhesive that your dentist will shape and polish to match the surrounding teeth. Dental bonding is relatively painless and is usually performed without anesthesia. If you’re having tooth bonding done on several teeth, you may need to schedule more than one visit; a dental bonding procedure on one tooth takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
When you undergo dental bonding, the dentist first roughens the surface of the tooth or teeth that will be treated, and then he or she applies a conditioning solution to help the bonding material stick to the tooth. Then the bonding material is applied to the teeth and shaped to fit and an ultraviolet light or laser is used to harden it into place.
Most Advanced Electric Toothbrush with Sensitivity Mode
Keep these tips in mind if you opt for dental bonding:
But if you follow a consistent oral care routine of
an electric toothbrush like the
Oral-B iO Series 9 which delivers a professional cleaning feeling
every day and daily flossing with a soft floss and
cordless irrigator, your bonding should last for several years
before it will need to be replaced.
