Reasons why you should consider dental bonding from Downtown Dental Centre in London, ON
In the past, when you had tooth decay that required a filling, you may have received an amalgam filling. While an amalgam filling has many strengths, its appearance is not one of those strengths. An amalgam filling is often noticeable due to its metallic appearance in the mouth. You should be excited to hear that there is an alternative available to you. Dr. David Favell and the team at Downtown Dental Centre in London, ON, offer a solution called dental bonding to patients. Dental bonded fillings provide a completely natural look while being incredibly durable.
Let us take a look at some reasons you may want to choose dental bonding.
Completed in a Single Visit
Dental bonding is often performed on a single or a few teeth in a relatively quick manner. The composite resin used in dental bonding can be applied, shaped, and hardened in just a single visit. The results provide a wonderfully natural look to your smile.
Preserve Your Natural Tooth
When looking at some other procedures, including porcelain veneers, some form of preparation of the tooth may be necessary. This preparation could come in several forms, including having to remove a thin layer of enamel. Dental bonding requires minimal alteration of your natural tooth. A slight filing of the tooth’s surface may be required to allow for better bonding of the resin material.
One of the many benefits offered by the composite resin material, which is used in the bonding process is its ability to be color-matched to your natural teeth. Another benefit is its ability to be shaped, and otherwise altered to seamlessly fit in with the rest of your smile. Bonding can be applied to two adjacent teeth to close a visible gap. Bonding can even be used to correct tooth discoloration. When a tooth is discolored from within, a simple whitening will not be able to correct this. Bonding will cover the discoloration allowing the tooth to blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile.
