Cosmetic applications for dental bonding materials.

Cosmetic tooth bonding - Dental bonding can be used to create cosmetic enhancements for teeth.

1) Dental Veneers Veneering of dental bonding over the front side of teeth that have become stained or discolored as a way of enhancing their cosmetic appearance.

2) Closing a dental gap (diastema). Tooth bonding can be used to fill in gaps that lie between a person's teeth . When this technique is employed, dental composite is bonded onto the sides of the two teeth that lie on either side of the gap, so to widen each tooth slightly. The net effect is that the space between the two teeth is narrowed, or even filled in completely.

3) Correcting minor cosmetic imperfections. Minor to moderate cosmetic imperfections of chipped, disfigured, or misaligned teeth can be masked or corrected by placing dental bonding.

 

How is dental bonding performed?

The dentist will prepare your tooth for treatment by roughening and shaping or contouring the surface. Then its followed by a process of applying a dilute acid, called Etchand, to the enamel of a tooth to produce a frosted surface which looks microscopically like a series of mountains and valleys. This microscopic roughness is then filled with a liquid plastic called Bonding agent, which acts as a strong adhesive or glue, which, when hardened, mechanically adheres onto the surface of the tooth and allows the further bonding of a glass filled composite filling material. In dental bonding, a composite resin material is applied to the tooth and then sculpted and shaped to cover damaged areas or to fill in gaps. This material comes in several shades so it can be matched to the natural color of your tooth. Several layers of the composite material may be necessary in order to achieve the best results. To cure and harden the material, a high-intensity light or a chemical agent may be used. Finally, your dentist will smooth and polish your tooth to give it an even, natural contour.

Except in complicated cases, bonding can be accomplished in one visit. The length of the visit will depend on the condition of your teeth and on how much cosmetic or restorative repair work you are having done. It is less time-consuming and less expensive, as no laboratory is involved in the production of the final product. than other tooth restoration methods. Direct bonding is an artistic endeavor on the part of the dentist.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Bonding?

Advantages: Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. Unlike veneers and crowns , which are customized tooth coverings that must be manufactured in a laboratory, bonding usually can be done in one office visit unless several teeth are involved. Another advantage, compared with veneers and crowns, is that the least amount of tooth enamel is removed. Also, unless dental bonding is being performed to fill a cavity , anesthesia is usually not required.

Disadvantages: Although the material used in dental bonding is somewhat stain resistant, it does not resist stains as well as crowns. Another disadvantage is that the bonding materials do not last as long nor are as strong as other restorative procedures, such as crowns, veneers, or fillings . Additionally, bonding materials can chip and break off the tooth. Because of some of the limitations of bonding, some dentists view bonding as best suited for small cosmetic changes, for temporary correction of cosmetic defects, and for correction of teeth in areas of very low bite pressure (for example, front teeth).

RISK OF BONDING:
1. Staining can occur with smoking and excessive amounts of coffeee and tea.
2. Durability varies but its approximately 3 to 5 years before replacement is required
3. Chipping or fracturing may necessitate repair or replacement and extra further dental cost
4. Requires more patient care to prevent staining or future chipping.
5. Breakage of the bonding materials occurs more readily with bonding than with Porcalain restorations
6. In short term, it is less costly, but the potential of frequent repairing, replacement or maintenance may mean more expensive in long term plus the time lost involved on frequent dental visit to do repair or maintenance.

How Long Does Bonding Material Last?

The lifespan of bonding materials depends on how much bonding was done and your oral habits. Plastic bonding may last for years but it is less strong than the more durable or longer lasting Porcelain restoration. Typically, however, bonding material lasts from 3 -5 years up to about 10 years before needing to be touched up or replaced. They have a useful life of 3 to 8 years.

Recommended Care of Bonded Teeth

Because bonding material can chip, it is important to avoid such habits as biting fingernails; chewing on pens, ice or other hard food objects; or using your bonded teeth as an opener. If you do notice any sharp edges on a bonded tooth or if your tooth feels odd when you bite down, call your dentist. Follow good oral hygiene practices. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss at least once a day and see your dentist for regular professional check-ups and cleanings.
