At Dental Care Antioch in Overland Park, KS, we know that several things make it an attractive option. First of all, dental bonding is one of the least expensive cosmetic procedures. Secondly, it’s not invasive. Patients don’t need local anesthesia while undergoing dental bonding. Finally, dental bonding rarely requires more than a single visit to the dentist. If you’re busy or don’t like seeing the dentist, dental bonding will save you time.

How Does it Work?

Dental bonding is as simple as a dental procedure can get. We use composite resin to fix chipped, cracked, stained, and broken teeth. We can also use composite resin to fill gaps between teeth. The affected teeth are roughened using gel; then, we place the resin. Ultraviolet light is used to make the resin adhere firmly.

We can modify the shape and color of composite resin depending on each patient’s teeth. The goal is to make it look as natural as possible so people who see you can’t tell the difference.

Life after Dental Bonding

Dental bonding lasts an average of 5-6 years. Unfortunately, the composite resin isn’t as durable as your natural teeth. It’s also not as durable as veneers and crowns. Patients who get dental bonding need to be careful with what they eat. You should avoid biting your nails or chewing on things like ice and nuts.

Dental bonding will stain as the days pass by. All artificial dental products stain, but some are more resistant to stains than others. If you smoke or drink coffee, tea, and soda frequently, your bonding will stain quickly. Try to cut back on these products and brush your teeth twice a day. You will need to continue taking care of your dental hygiene to prevent cavities and other dental issues.
