Dental bonding is one of the most simple and economical dental procedures. Dental bonding, otherwise known as cosmetic bonding, is an easy way to address small imperfections and gaps between teeth. Only one appointment is required for the procedure, meaning you won’t have to return multiple times. The dental bonding procedure also only uses natural colours that can be matched extremely closely with the shade of your teeth, negating the possibility of any negative visual phenomena.
Composite bonding is one of two dental and cosmetic bonding procedures. It is known as one of the least invasive procedures in cosmetic dentistry. For composite bonding, a composite resin is applied to repair damage, fix imperfections, and change the shape of teeth. This resin has a 10 to 15 year lifespan, and the procedure is completed in a single visit. It is a resin that it effective, cost efficient and durable. As it is generally stain resistant, composite bonding will not stain anymore than your natural teeth. If it does become stained, the resin is easily polished and can be returned to its natural state of colouration by your dentist during a routine clean.
Adhesive bonding is used for dental bonding treatments that are for aesthetic purposes or for those dealing with metal-free crowns and porcelain veneers. Due to the differences in material and complexity of procedure, adhesive bonding is often slightly dearer. However, it is the only available option for metal-free crowns and porcelain veneers, and is far more effective than composite bonding in aesthetic procedures.
The way adhesive bonding differs from composite bonding is that adhesive bonding does not bind naturally to teeth, meaning it requires additional agents to form a bond. To do this, an etchant, a bonding agent and an adhesive are exposed to a curing light to form the adhesive bond.
