    Before placing dental bonding on broken front tooth

Dental bonding is a natural looking restoration used to repair damaged front teeth. By placing bonding your dentist can repair chipped teeth, fractures and minor cracks. Dental bonding is considered a cosmetic dentistry procedure which improves the appearance of your front teeth. Bonding your teeth is easy, convenient and typically gives you very good results.

Why is dental bonding so popular?

Bonding comes in different shades to better match your tooth color

Bonding your teeth is a simple and effective cosmetic dentistry procedure which yields amazing results in minimal time. Dental bonding could be a good option to fix your teeth when they break or chip. Bonding your teeth is simple, effective and affordable. Plus, bonding is natural-looking, safe and durable when placed on the right tooth.

The most common alternative treatment to dental bonding are Amalgam fillings (silver fillings) or porcelain veneers. Cosmetic dentists prefer bonding over Amalgam. Silver fillings don’t look natural and also contain mercury which is a known toxin. Porcelain veneers are a good alternative to dental bonding, but they are much more expensive. Talk to Dr. Jazayeri to explore your different restoration options. Give us a call at (949) 481-2540 to schedule a consultation to see if bonding your teeth is a good option for you.

Is bonding my teeth a good decision for me?

Dental bonding is a very effectively way to repair damaged teeth. Bonding works very well for repairing small-to-medium sized tooth defects. There are plenty of benefits to bonding your damaged teeth, such as:

  • Bonding your teeth is simple and boding procedures are typically completed in a single session
  • Dental bonding yields great aesthetic results
  • Bonding material is safe, relatively durable and beautiful
  • Since dental bonding comes in a wide variety of colors, your dentist can match your bonding to the exact shade of your teeth for optimal aesthetic results

What are the limitations of dental bonding?

As discussed above, dental bonding has many implications in cosmetic dentistry. While dental bonding is a great option for fixing small-to-medium sized defects there are certain limitations. Here are some examples of cases where dental bonding might not be your best choice:

Large tooth fractures

For larger defects, it is recommended to place a crown or veneers on your tooth instead of bonding

Dental bonding is essentially glued onto your teeth. As a result, bonding does not work very well for larger tooth defects. Placing a very large dental bonding will leave your tooth vulnerable to stress from your bite forces. This leaves your tooth vulnerable to fractures. Plus, larger bonding restorations are very likely to accumulate tooth decay and stains. This means that your have to keep replacing the bonding restoration every few years. For larger tooth defects, we recommended you place a crown or veneers on your teeth instead. If you are not sure which option is best for you, schedule a consultation with Oceansight Dental & Implants. Call us at (949) 481-2540 and we will help you decide which treatment option is best suited to your needs.

Complete smile rejuvenation

Bonding works very well when it comes to fixing individual broken teeth. However, bonding may not be your best option if your goal is to restore your entire smile. Dental bonding gets stained easily and changes color over time.If you’re trying to get a full smile makeover we recommend that go with porcelain veneers or ceramic crowns instead of dental bonding.

What is the process for bonding teeth?

Often times the whole bonding process is completed during your initial visit in 30 to 60 minutes.

Luckily, bonding your teeth is one of the easiest of all cosmetic dentistry procedures. Most bonding procedures are completed during a single appointment. Here is what you should expect when getting your bonding treatment:

Cosmetic dentistry consultation

You first step is to schedule your cosmetic consultation with us. During your consultation, Dr. Jazayeri will access your damaged teeth to see if dental bonding is a good option for you. After it is determined that bonding is a good option for you we can start your treatment. Often times, treatment can be done on the same day as your consultation.

Tooth preparation for dental bonding

Most bonding procedures are preformed during a single appointment. The whole process usually takes 30 to 60 minutes. Your dentist will prepare your tooth, apply bonding and cure the bonding material. Next, your dentist will polish and trim your new bonding. Finally, your dentist will make sure that you can properly chew and floss your new bonding restoration. You will be given a mirror to see the final result and approve it. Pay close attention to make sure that the color and shape of the filling is to your exact liking. If not, your dentist will modify the bonding until you are happy with the final results!

Follow-up visit(s)

We always want to see you back in one to two weeks after bonding your teeth. During this follow-up visit, we will make sure that your bonding is fully intact and functioning well. We can make necessary adjustments to your bite if needed. Usually this is a quick and easy visit just to make sure everything looks and feels fine.
