Composite bonding is the use of tooth colored filling material which can be used to repair decayed or chipped teeth. Bonding can also be used by our Glendale dentist to enhance the shape and color of teeth, close spaces between teeth and also protect exposed areas of teeth due to gum recession.
What is dental bonding?
Dental Bonding usually refers to any dental procedure that permanently attaches dental materials to a patient’s teeth using dental adhesives and fixing them in place using high-intensity light.
Who is a dental bonding candidate?
If you are wondering who the ideal candidate is for dental bonding, we have great news. Pretty much everyone can be a candidate for this procedure! Due to the fact that it only involves adding adhesive materials like resin onto the damaged or compromised area of your teeth and then sealing them in place to re-establish their original shape, dental bonding is rather simple!
What are the benefits of bonding?
Dental bonding can help fix teeth with severe stains and discolorations. It is usually recommended that people who have gum recession use bonds to protect some portions of a tooth’s root that could be exposed. It is also beneficial for repairing the damage created by injuries such as chips and cracks. Dental bonding is an excellent alternative to dental amalgams for filling in cavities, as they can more closely match the tooth color.
