Dental Bonding Services in Surrey
Dental bonding is a process by which a special composite is used to repair or improve the appearance of teeth. This special composite is soft when first applied to a tooth and can be shaped to achieve the desired look. It is then hardened using ultraviolet light.
Bonding is a technique that may be used to address several dental issues including chipped or crooked teeth and discoloration. It cannot, however, on its own be used to treat issues such as an infected tooth though it can be used as a protective layer after a root canal. People cannot tell when a patient has had dental bonding as the composite used in the process was designed to bond and take on the appearance of the natural tooth.
Your dentist will not remove any part of your tooth for dental bonding and the process is completely reversible. You can have multiple teeth bonded in any given session. The procedure will usually take about 30 minutes per tooth.
How to care for teeth with bonding
Teeth repaired with bonding do not require any special cleaning or treatment. You will simply need to care for them as you would your natural teeth. So, floss every day, brush twice daily, use an antiseptic mouthwash and remember to visit your dentist every 6 months.
Bonding is less expensive than other dental procedures, but bonding can be stained and is easier to break than treatments like porcelain veneers. With proper dental hygiene practices, dental bonding can last for as long as 10 years. When the bonding starts to wear off or if it breaks or chips, tell your dentist. The bonding can generally be easily patched or repaired in one visit.
