Being an application of protective dentistry, bonding application is used to correct tooth shape, size and colour problems with the composite material. Bonding treatment does not require enamel removing in contrast to other dental aesthetics applications. There is no laboratory stage; this provides the advantage of a single séance. In addition, there is no hot cold sensitivity and there is no waiting time after treatment. These are the advantages of bonding treatment. One of the most important advantages is that it is a more economical treatment compared to other aesthetic dentistry applications.
What it’s used for?
- Closing of the dental gaps
- Chipped tooth
- Discoloured and stained tooth
- Shape disorders
- Fractured tooth
- Worn teeth
- Asymmetric tooth sizes
All this can be corrected by bonding treatment. Bonding treatment can be easily applied to patients of all ages. It is a painless treatment that does not require anaesthetics, if there is no prior treatment for cavities. It is also very easy to correct if there are visible wear and fractures over time. This method, which completely eliminates the defective image without any tooth loss, enables us to get an aesthetic result while protecting the tooth.
The treatment consists of applying the tooth-coloured composite material to the tooth, shaping, and then polishing. The treatment takes between 30-60 minutes on average. Patients who take care of their dental care and visit their dentist regularly can use it for up to 10 years. If patients who have a bonding application have problems such as tooth grinding, it is important that they share it with their dentist and look for possible solutions. In addition, avoiding habits such as cracking nuts with your teeth or biting nails can contribute significantly to the longevity of the application.
