What Is It?
Bonding or dental bonding is a precise technique where white, tooth-colored composite filling material is used to fill or repair minor defects in teeth. Bonding is used for improving the aesthetic appeal of your smile. Fill in a gap between teeth or slight lengthening of teeth for an enhanced look. Applying bonding requires precision and attention to detail and that’s where we at Taylorview Dental shine as bright as your smile. Detail, experience, and care all go into making your bonding experience the best possible.
Do I Need It?
Basically, there are two groups that are good candidates for dental bonding. Those who are looking for restoration; fillings, repairs of chips, cracks or breaks and those who are in need of cosmetic help. This would include no-prep veneers, small gaps between teeth or an oddly shaped tooth. The bonding material can be applied to the teeth to fix dark or white spots. Also, if you have a small, old mercury filling, composite binding is a perfect replacement or for repairing an otherwise healthy tooth.
Tooth Bonding for Gaps
If you're in the the area of Idaho Falls area and are looking to fix a gap from dental bonding, Tayloview Dental can help. Tooth bonding can be completed in a single visit and can fix several issues that arise with our teeth and smiles.
Dental bonding is a great solution for several irregularities in the teeth including smaller gaps. Bear in mind that if you have a large gap from a missing tooth or teeth, then dental bonding is not the procedure you are looking for.
It starts by delineating the spot in the tooth that needs work and preparing it in order for a plastic resin to be applied. The resin is molded to your tooth and sometimes a UV light is used to dry the resin. The bonding will be the same color of your tooth, hence it will look like part of it.
Here are a few common reasons for needing dental bonding:
- Chipped tooth
- Make teeth longer
- Small gaps
- An irregularly shaped tooth
