Composite Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure where we apply a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden and polish it. It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged or become stained. These are generally minor repairs that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive means rather than through a more costly dental procedure. At Crestview Dental Group in Santa Clara CA, we can work together to determine if this is the best course of action for your unique needs.

The Composite Bonding Process

The dentist prepares the tooth surface so the bonding material will adhere. Once it has been applied, the dentist will shape it so it has a natural appearance. Then the material is allowed to harden, usually with the help of a light. Finally, the composite is polished and buffed so that the surface is smooth.

Advantages of Composite Bonding

A Santa Clara, CA dental patient smiles after receiving dental bonding at Crestview Dental Group.Bonding is a perfectly adequate and more affordable solution to certain dental problems. Dental bonding can take less time to accomplish and may not even require anesthesia. Depending upon the issue, insurance may cover it.

Disadvantages of Composite Bonding

The composite bonding material is not as durable as porcelain veneers and crowns, so it chips more easily; eventually it may require replacing. Also, this is not a process that is recommended if you are a smoker as smoke causes staining.

Please don't procrastinate if you have a dental problem, but you are worried about the time, cost, or pain involved. Perhaps dental bonding can offer you a solution. Give Crestview Dental Group in Santa Clara a call at 408-248-1012 so we can discuss options with you.
