Direct Composite Vs. Adhesive Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding | Stockton CAIf you have an imperfect smile, you are certainly not alone. In fact, it’s fair to say that nobody is born with a perfect smile. Whether you have crooked teeth, cracked teeth, or chipped teeth, you may want to consider getting them fixed with dental bonding by Dr. Janice Scott. Read on to learn more about the two types of dental bonding and how they can perfect your smile.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a procedure that involves using either tooth colored resin  that is cured with a high-intensity light help restore chipped and cracked teeth, fill in gaps between the teeth, and to even sometimes help seal the tooth off from a cavity.

Direct Composite Bonding

This form of dental bonding is the process of using a composite material like resin to help fill in space between teeth, fill in cavities, and repair chipped or cracked teeth. By sculpting the composite material by hand to mold over your teeth, Dr. Janice Scott will be able to give you a fast and easy smile makeover in just one dentist visit. As a less expensive option to help repair your smile, dental bonding is popular amongst many of our patients.

Adhesive Bonding

This form of dental bonding involves using a material, a bonding agent, and light to help cure the tooth and resin. Primarily used to treat cosmetic issues, adhesive bonding can also be used to help with a dental crown or filling.

Dental bonding is popular amongst patients who would like to perfect their smile without spending much money. Although dental bonding doesn’t last as long as procedures like veneers, our patients experience fantastic results.
