Sometimes cosmetic dentist is compared with a sculptor, who uses clay to create beauty. Cosmetic dentist’s clay is said to be a dental composite resin, which is used in the dental bonding procedure. By using that your dentist can restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile.
Bonding is a composite resin filling placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. Composites are the most suitable solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth. Bonding will lighten any stains you may might have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Accepting dental bonding, you can be sure that the result of this procedure will last one decade minimum.
There are two types of bonding. These types of dental bonding differ in area which requires a smaller or larger area of correction. For small corrections there are one appointment fillings which are color-matched to the tooth and are bonded to the surface for added strength. For larger corrections there are dental lab-created tooth-colored fillings that require minimum two appointments and involve making a mold of your teeth and placing a temporary filling. Then a very durable filling is being created to custom-fit the mold made from your teeth. All these fillings basically are made from porcelain. The custom-fit filling is then bonded to your tooth on your return visit. This type is even more natural looking, more durable and more stain resistant.
It is not difficult to realize whether you are right candidate for dental bonding or wrong. If you have small gaps between your front teeth, or if you have chipped or cracked teeth, you may be the right candidate for bonding. Bonding is also used for patients who have discolored teeth, jagged teeth, gum recession or tooth decay. Smokers might be the wrong candidates for dental bonding, because soon after procedure they will find that their bonding is yellowing. It is because bonding material is porous. In any case it is advised to discuss your position for dental bonding with your dentist.
Dental bonding seems to be the enemy of the silver filling. Unlike silver fillings, composite bonding expands just like your teeth and no cracks are likely to appear in your tooth. Composites can be used to fill in cracks, chips and gaps – and will match the color of your other teeth. Of course, it might cost more than to have simple silver filling, but the advantages are also obvious.
The cost of dental bonding is not as high as the effect of the procedure. As with all procedures, prices may vary depending on your location. Many dental insurance plans cover most of the cost of the bonding, particularly when it is done for structural reasons. Anyway, you are always welcome to enquire Health & Tourism, LLC in Latvia.
