Dental Bondings in Taylorsville, UT
Naisbitt Family Dentistry
Dental bonding is a dental procedure in which a dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) and cures it with visible, blue light. This ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth and improves the overall appearance of teeth.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding uses a composite resin to fill in spaces in the teeth, such as cracks and gaps. It's also used to lighten discoloration and even out crooked teeth.
What Are the Advantages of Bonding?
Bonding creates a pleasing appearance, and is less costly than some other cosmetic dental procedures, such as crowns or veneers. It's also less time consuming, in most cases taking only one office visit. Bonded teeth require no special care; just continue to practice good dental hygiene like brushing and flossing the teeth.
Is it Painful?
Not at all. Bonding is completely painless, and does not require anesthesia unless a filling is being placed as well. A few patients reported an increase in tooth sensitivity for a short period after the bonding procedure.
