Are you looking add dental filling? These is what you need to know about dental bonding.

Star dental offers the best quality in dental bonding in our daily practice, is a quick process that uses tooth-colored composite resin bonded to your tooth to repair many dental issues.

The most common problem in the day-to-day is to restore decayed teeth, a tooth that’s been damaged by decay can be restored with composite resin. Because composite is bonded directly to your tooth, it also provides strength and longevity. Because it’s custom shaded, the composite is also aesthetically pleasing.

Composite could help to repair small fractures, chips and small wear could be fixed with dental bonding.  It could help to close or modify some tooth shapes even closing teeth gaps. Sometimes when we brush too hard and with a bad technique, permanent damage is caused to our gums and they recede.

Disadvantages of dental fillings.

The material can stain if not cleaned well, or if you tend to consume dark drinks like sodas, coffee, and red wine.

Be careful, because whitening won’t lighten your composite color. This is important to keep in mind at the day that you will pick the color.

Bonding material isn’t as strong as natural tooth enamel, so there is a bit of care that you’ll have to take. Avoiding certain types of foods will help prevent your restored tooth from chipping. Bonding is relatively quick and inexpensive compared to treatments like dental veneers. Replacement will be needed every so often, so it’s something you’ll want to take into consideration when deciding if bonding is right for you.

How Long Does Composite Dental Bonding Last?

Bonding teeth can last for several years if cared for properly.  In order to get the most out of your investment, you should brush the treated teeth at least twice a day and floss daily.  This habit will help prevent cavities from developing around the bonded area. Smoking is also discouraged. Wearing a protective bite splint or night guard can help prevent chips from occurring while you sleep.
