Most of society today is aware of a variety of dental terms, but what about direct composite bonding? Direct composite bonding, though not a widely known term, is a very common procedure that is often used in combination with another procedure. Dental bonding involves the use of tooth-colored resin that is applied to the teeth and hardened. Dental bonding can be used for all sorts of purposes such as:
Even though your dentist may not mention direct composite bonding to you by this name, it is more than likely that at some point, your dentist has treated you using some sort of direct composite bonding. Dental bonding can be used for simple fixes such as cavities but is also needed when a dentist has to apply and secure dental veneers.
In order for veneers to be properly secured to the teeth, they have to be bonded. This type of bonding is called Adhesive Bonding. When veneers are bonded to the teeth using dental bonding, the patient will have a new smile that not only looks great but feels great and is completely durable. Even with dental bonding a patient’s new smile will look and feel entirely natural but simple things such as eating, chewing, and talking, often become much less of a chore.
If you have a cracked tooth, are interested in dental veneers, or are looking to replace your old metal fillings with tooth-colored resin, dental bonding can be of great help to you! Call Drs.
