Dental bonding doesn't get the attention that fillings and crowns do, but this important treatment option gives dentists a simple way to dental bondingrestore damage and correct minor cosmetic issues. Deerfield Beach, FL, cosmetic dentist Dr. Mark Boukzam shares some information about this treatment option.

What is dental bonding?

Did you spend hours creating shapes with Play-Doh when you were a child? What made playing with the compound so enjoyable was its ability to molded into any form you desired. Composite resin, a flexible, putty-like material, can be manipulated into any shape, just like Play-Doh. The material is used to improve the appearance or function of your teeth during the bonding process.

Once the composite resin is shaped and applied to your teeth, it's hardened with a curing light, which bonds it your teeth and gives it exceptional strength. Composite resin comes in the most common tooth shades and is designed to look like your natural tooth enamel.

How is dental bonding used?

Bonding is one of the most versatile types of dental treatments because it can be used for multiple purposes, such as:

  • Restoring Damaged Areas: Small chips and breaks in teeth can affect your appearance and may interfere with chewing. Bonding restores the damaged areas and is tough enough to withstand chewing and biting without cracking or breaking.
  • Improving Tooth Length: Chewing is much easier when your teeth are similar lengths. Bonding builds up short teeth, enabling you to chew without straining your jaw and jaw muscles. If your teeth have decreased in length due to nighttime grinding, ask about a nightguard when you visit our Deerfield Beach office for your bonding appointment. The device, worn while you sleep, protects your teeth from damage.
  • Covering Cosmetic Issues: Bonding is often used to hide imperfections that affect the fronts of your teeth, including bumps, pits, cracks, and discolorations.
  • Changing the Appearance of Teeth: When you're unhappy with the shape of a tooth, bonding offers an easy, inexpensive option to change the way your tooth looks.
