Oral health plays an important role in developing your overall health and well-being. Poor oral health leads to dental cavities and gum diseases, and is often associated with heart diseases, diabetes, and cancer.
The oral cavity houses all types of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Some of them make up the normal flora of your mouth by staying there. They are harmless in small quantities. But an unhealthy diet creates a condition in which acid-producing bacteria flourish. This acid softens tooth enamel, resulting in dental cavities.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which the dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material and hardens it with a special light. It bonds the material to the tooth to improve the smile of a person.
Dental bonding is an option to be considered for repairing decayed teeth. The dentist fills the cavity with durable plastic material. It repairs chipped or cracked teeth and also closes the space between the teeth. Bonding improves the appearance of discolored teeth and makes the teeth look longer.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic substitute for amalgam fillings. It helps to change the shape of the teeth. Bonding protects a part of the tooth's root that has been uncovered when gums recede.
Only a little preparation is needed to get dental bonding. Anesthesia is necessary only when the bonding is used to fill a decayed tooth. The dentist chooses a composite resin color that nearly matches the color of your tooth.
The dentist then roughens the surface of the tooth and spreads a conditioning liquid. These steps enable the bonding material to adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored resin is applied, shaped, and molded to the desired shape. The material is then hardened with a bright light or laser. The dentist will then further trim and shape the material.
