When Is Dental Bonding the Right Choice for Me?

When Is Dental Bonding the Right Choice for Me? from McCarthy Dentistry in Marietta, OHDental bonding may be the right choice for you if you are in need of restorative dentistry. Dental bonding is primarily used to repair chips, cracks, worn-down enamel, gaps between teeth, short teeth, and teeth stains and is often considered a more affordable alternative to dental veneer treatment.

When to choose dental bonding for your restorative solution

Dental bonding may be the right choice if you want a minimally invasive, safe, and effective treatment solution that does not harm teeth enamel. The following are five specific reasons you should consider choosing dental bonding for your restorative solution.

You want a minimally invasive treatment solution

Dental bonding may be the best treatment solution for patients that desire the least invasive treatment solution possible that still produces the results they desire. The dental bonding procedure only requires one short dental visit. With veneers, traditional dental crowns, and other alternative treatment solutions, the procedure may take multiple visits and a more invasive treatment process that requires a longer time for recovery.

You do not want to alter your dental enamel in any way

One drawback to dental veneers is that enamel must be removed in many cases to make room for the ideal fit of the veneer. This is generally not the case with dental bonding, and the procedure is not seen as a permanent and non-reversible treatment solution in the same way that veneers are.

You want a more affordable restorative solution

Dental bonding is far more affordable than dental veneers and other alternative solutions in many instances, while still producing high-quality treatment results. This often makes dental bonding the most ideal solution for patients who want to save money while still restoring the appearance and health of their smile. Of course, patients who want a solution that can save them money over the course of a decade or more may prefer veneers.

You want a trusted restorative solution with predictable results

Dental bonding is one of the most common procedures performed by dentists. In addition, the bonding procedure is not as complex as some alternative treatment solutions. This allows for more predictable results and less overall risk for the patient. Also, the procedure is reversible in some instances, which further reduces the overall risk for the patient.

Your cosmetic or oral health concern is not severe

Dental bonding is typically used to address mild to moderate concerns. However, more severe damage to front teeth may require more extensive treatment. For example, a tooth that has severe enamel decay may require root canal therapy followed by the placement of a tooth-colored crown, and dental bonding may not be an ideal solution.
