Previously, if a tooth was chipped then it called for a crown to replace it, unless it was such a tiny chip that cosmetic contouring could treat it. But in the case of bonding, the process of restoring broken teeth has completely been transformed. It is now possible to form a new tooth merely by smearing moldable resin composite on its left over structure. This helps the tooth get back its natural shape.
Chair-side hand-made veneers or bonding is the perfect answer to most dental problems:
• Sealing tiny spaces
• Concealing stains
• Fixing minor small fractures
• Sensitive teeth treatment
• Lightening tooth color
The bonding procedure can be done in just one visit and frequently without the requirement for local anesthesia and using the Air Abrasion System. The composite resin restorative material’s color is selected to match the current tooth and by using a special chemical, it is treated and cleaned. Liquid bond layers are applied between your tooth and composite resin. Then this composite resin is duly shaped, set and shined.
The benefit of bonding rests in the fact that there is minimal or no decrease of the structure of the tooth, it’s a reversible technique and the tooth color can be made light. But, these bonded restorations can break or discolor far easily than the ones made in the laboratory, but they can be set right or restored without any difficulty.
Also, the bonding procedure is employed when fixing white `tooth shaded' restorations in the anterior as well as the posterior teeth.
