Who Should Not Get Dental Bonding?

Posted on 3/20/2020 by City Smiles DC
Who Should Not Get Dental Bonding?Dental bonding is one way to remake your smile quickly and effectively. This transformative cosmetic procedure is easily one of the more popular in dentistry today.

However, the dental bonding procedure will not work well for all patients, some patients will not qualify for the cosmetic procedure. If you are interested in this procedure you will need to be evaluated carefully before being allowed to proceed.

More About Qualification for Dental Bonding

Most dentists will tell you that for any cosmetic dentistry procedure that your oral health has to be the number one criterion. If you are to be considered, you must have no gum disease or periodontitis in the advanced stages to undergo the cosmetic dental bonding procedure. The number one cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease. If the patient is at risk of losing their teeth due to gum disease, it would be useless to perform a cosmetic surgery for the purpose of improving their teeth for them only to be lost.

There would have to be a discussion beforehand about any oral health problems before a bonding procedure or any other dental treatments could be performed. These conditions notwithstanding, you would otherwise likely be someone who might likely be a candidate who could be approved for the cosmetic dental bonding cosmetic procedure.

If you would like an alternative to porcelain veneers, do not want a permanent procedure, or would like to try something a little less permanent to see how it would look before making that long-term commitment. To most people, the most natural looking of the cosmetic treatments available is the porcelain veneers, because they also possess some of the properties with the enamel that are light-reflecting properties.

There is the removal of a thin layer of enamel from your teeth that is required for the veneers before they are placed. So, you must always wear the veneers because of this, even after the initial veneers would or might become damaged. But the dental bonding procedure is reversible if you don't want to do a second surgery after the first one wears off it is completely optional.
