What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure where a bond is created to fill in for a chipped or broken tooth. The bond can be useful for filling up gaps between teeth as well. In certain complex cases, it is also used to cover any dental roots that have started showing on the surface because of depletion of gums.
How is Dental Bonding Done?
Unlike other procedures, where you have to sit along for several appointments with the dentist, dental bonding is rather linear and can be finished up in one appointment.
Initially, like all dental procedures, the dentist will clean your teeth thoroughly and check for any exceptional problems you have. After this, she will start with the procedure of gauging the exact information about the exact place where the dental bond will be fit. Now, depending on the type of dental bonding, this would mean gauging the shape and size of the filling along with the colour of the filling.
Resin is used as the material to create the bonds. Since no external laboratories are required here, the dentist will adjust the bond in order to fit it in the right space.

It saves a ton of time. Now, you don’t have to wait for the laboratory to send the veneer and the crown, which the dentist will try fitting in and then again send back for any corrections. The entire process can be accomplished in one appointment.
Since the time consumed is next to none, in comparison to other procedures, the price for this procedure is also less compared to its alternatives such as veneers.
How to Care for Dental Bonding?
In terms of special care, the dentist will inform you in detail. Usually, there is no extreme care required to maintain the dental bond.
