Advantages of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding, also referred to as tooth bonding, is a form of cosmetic dentistry that repairs or covers up undesirable cosmetic issues with a smile. Choosing a highly qualified dentist is important if you are considering dental bonding so that you will end up with a smile that makes you feel confident.

Cosmetic dentistry offers an array of choices to transform any smile. However, deciding which treatment is best for you may be difficult. This is why we always recommend a consultation with us at Devine Dentistry. We take an individualized approach when detailing each treatment plan for our patients. Even just as important is the state of your oral health. We consider that, too, when helping you choose the best cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Until you are able to see us for your consultation, here is some useful information regarding dental bonding that may help you decide if it is right for you.

Time – Dental bonding procedures are completed in-office, and do not require the use of a dental laboratory. Therefore, if you are crunched for time, and are unable to wait weeks, months, or even years for a new smile, this procedure may be ideal for you. We can apply and contour the material onto each tooth being treated, and can even give the appearance of perfectly straight teeth – all without the need for orthodontics or having to wait years for a perfect smile.  Many dental bonding procedures can be completed in one day!

Cost – Dental bonding is certainly a cost-effective treatment to fix those unwanted issues with your smile. It is, however, less expensive than other forms of cosmetic dentistry, but that does not make it the right fit for everyone. Still, if finances are a concern for you, ask us about our payment options that include interest-free, low monthly payment options through our trusted third party financing company, CareCredit. You can transform your smile now, and pay for it later!

Safe – Dental bonding uses a composite material that is completely biocompatible, meaning you do not have to worry about harmful chemicals leaking into your body like with those old silver fillings of the past. If you have some old fillings that you would like to have removed, we can safely do so and then replace them with beautiful, natural-looking composite fillings or dental bonding. Since dental bonding material bonds directly to your teeth, it creates a perfect seal that keeps bacteria from re-entering your teeth and causing an infection at the site of the filling. Keep in mind that good oral hygiene is always necessary – with or without dental bonding.

Aesthetics – Dental bonding material is made to be completely natural looking. It comes in a variety of shades, which allows us to select a perfect shade to blend in with the rest of your teeth. If you prefer, we can even whiten all of your teeth before you receive dental bonding. That way, you can choose a whiter shade for your dental bonding procedure. Keep in mind that dental bonding will not change color, so future whitening treatments will be ineffective towards the composite. This is why we may often recommend teeth whitening in conjunction with dental bonding procedures.

These advantages alone make dental bonding a preferred choice for correcting teeth that are broken, chipped, decayed or gapped. Not only is composite material safe and effective, but it is naturally beautiful, too!
