What is Bonding Application?
To repair caries, fractures, notched or colored teeth with composite resin material in tooth paste.
In Which Situations Will Bonding Be Applied?
Bonding application is an easy and inexpensive cosmetic application. It is mostly used for cosmetic requirements. It is used to improve the appearance of dyed or colored teeth, to close the spaces between the teeth (diestamas), to change the shape of the teeth (such as long teeth) and to change their color.
Little or no preparation is required for the bonding application. Anesthesia is usually not necessary if it is not applied in a decayed tooth.
How is it applied?
• After color is selected: The surface of the tooth is roughened using oil laser or acid.
• The tooth is covered with a material compatible with it so that the bonding material can easily hold onto the tooth.
• After these preparations, the composite resin material in the tooth paste is placed in the tooth with the desired shape.
• The material is hardened with ultraviolet light.
• After the material is hardened, it is corrected and shaped by the physician.
• The material is then polished until it shines as it is in other parts of the tooth.
This process takes about 30-60 minutes. If more than one dental application is needed, several appointments may be needed.
What to do after treatment
You should stay as far away from colorful food and drinks as possible in order to protect them from stains within the first 48 hours or to minimize their occurrence. It causes the coloring of the resin material used in the application of tea, coffee, and cigarette. You should clean your teeth with your dentist at regular intervals besides brushing.
What are the risks?
The composite resin is not as strong as the natural tooth. It can crumble if you bite or chew on ice or penis. The life of the bonding application has been several years and can be repaired later. The oral habits and how much bonding is applied play an important role in the determination of the life of the bonding application.
