The Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is the process of using a tooth-colored resin to restore and improve a patient’s smile. Bonding is used in a variety of situations, for example, it is used to:
- Fill cavities
- Repair chipped teeth
- Repair cracked teeth
- Reshape a tooth
- Protect a part of the tooth’s root that has been exposed by receding gums
Dental Bonding procedures are so popular and frequently performed for several reasons. Advantages apply to dental bonding procedures and in relation to other procedures. For example:
- It is one of the cheapest cosmetic dental procedures.
- With close to zero room for complications this is a simple and very easy procedure.
- Bonding can usually be started and completed in the same office visit.
- Minimal amounts of natural tooth enamel is removed before applying the bonding (significantly less removed compared to veneers and crowns).
- Anesthesia is not required unless filling a cavity.
At the same time, there are also some disadvantages.
Nothing artificial ever really works as well as the original and natural form. Disadvantages include:
- They are not as stain resistant as crowns.
- Bonding is not as strong compared to other restorative procedures (crowns, fillings, veneers, etc).
- Bonding does not typically last as long as other restorative procedures.
- When under excessive pressure, bonding materials can chip and break off parts of the tooth.
As a result of these limitations and the nature of its advantages. Dental bonding is used by dentists more commonly for small cosmetic changes, temporary corrections or teeth with low bite pressure.
