Three Ways Dental Bonding Compares to Natural Teeth

Three Ways Dental Bonding Compares to Natural Teeth from Stellar Smiles in Boca Raton, FLLicensed dentists often recommend dental bonding to repair minor to moderate concerns with front visible teeth because the bonding material has many similarities with natural teeth. Dental bonding can protect the deeper layers of teeth, withstand the daily pressures teeth receive, and match the ideal shade of teeth.

A detailed comparison between dental bonding and natural teeth

It is beneficial to understand how dental bonding compares with natural teeth enamel to determine whether or not bonding is the best solution for your restorative dentistry needs. This review compares the composite resin material used for dental bonding with natural teeth enamel, which is the visible and outermost layer of teeth.

Dental bonding and natural teeth have the same shade when cared for

Dental bonding is used primarily for the visible surface of front teeth, rather than for the chewing surfaces of teeth further back in the mouth (i.e. molars). One of the reasons for this is because the bonding material, a composite resin, closely matches the shade of natural teeth and subsequently offers superior cosmetic advantages when compared to metal fillings and most dental crown types.

Of course, proper care is required with dental bonding. Unlike veneers that are for the most part stain resistant, the resin material can stain over time the same way as natural dental enamel. Subsequently, it is important to make smart dietary choices that reduce the risk of teeth stains and practice good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash regularly.

Both bonding and natural teeth can handle daily pressures teeth receive

Natural teeth and composite resin are strong enough to handle the daily pressures from chewing that front teeth receive. Natural enamel is stronger than the resin material, however, so it is important to exercise caution while chewing and avoid biting down on hard substances such as hard candies, ice, etc. It is also important to note that the resin material may not be able to withstand the pressures from chewing that molars receive, which is why a crown or metal filling is often recommended for teeth further back in the mouth. Nevertheless, dental bonding offers the perfect combination of strength and appearance.

Dental bonding and natural teeth enamel protect the deeper layers of teeth

Dental bonding can protect the deeper layers of teeth from harm and reduce the risk of nerve exposure after damage to a tooth occurs. For example, a chip or crack could expose the deeper layers of teeth and possibly the tooth’s root, which can cause discomfort. Much like dental enamel, one of the purposes of the bonding material is to protect the tooth from nerve exposure and subsequent discomfort.
