The material used in Dental Bonding is the same material used in Dental Fillings – Composite Resin. The teeth will often be prepared minimally (to aid in bonding and blending), and the dentist will match the shade and shape to mimic a natural tooth. Then it’s polished so no one can tell it has been restored!
If a tooth has decay, previous large fillings, is cracked or heavily worn, a Dental Crown may be the best treatment option. Dental bonding is not always the best treatment option, though, especially for major corrections in a smile. However, in some cases, a little bonding on a tooth can bring about huge improvements.
Not sure what the best option for you is? Make an appointment today with our Pathways Dental Clinic Team to have a comprehensive exam, and the dentist will evaluate your options to address your needs. They will discuss whether you are a good candidate for Dental Bonding or any other options that might work for you.
