Dental Bonding and Fluorosis

Posted on 12/15/2023 by Giri Palani
Dental bonding is a cosmetic technique that employs a composite resin to improve the aesthetics of your smile. It is commonly employed to fix chips, narrow gaps, or alter the shape and color of a tooth. What sets dental bonding apart from other cosmetic dental procedures, like porcelain veneers, is its complete reversibility. Dental bonding can be used for many dental conditions, such as fluorosis.

What is Fluorosis?

Fluorosis manifests as white or brown speckles on the teeth and arises due to excessive fluoride exposure during the formative years of permanent tooth development. While fluorosis is primarily a cosmetic issue and poses no threat to overall health, various treatments are available to manage and alleviate the aesthetic concerns associated with this condition.

Management of Fluorosis with Dental Bonding

For individuals with mild cases of fluorosis, teeth whitening is a viable option, but alternative treatments might be better suited to your needs. Dental bonding is one such option, where your dentist utilizes tooth-colored composite resin to conceal fluorosis stains. This procedure involves shaping and polishing the teeth to achieve results that appear natural.

Advantages of Dental Bonding for Fluorosis

The bonded tooth seamlessly blends in with your natural teeth, ensuring it remains inconspicuous. This advantage is achieved through the use of a tooth-colored composite resin material, providing a natural finish that closely matches the appearance of your existing teeth. Also, the dental bonding procedure preserves the structure of your tooth enamel, leaving it intact without any removal. Consequently, there is no post-treatment tooth sensitivity, ensuring a comfortable experience for the patient.

Fluorosis stains tend to appear on the enamel of your teeth. Our skilled dentists will conceal these stains using a low-budget yet effective dental bonding process. The process primarily involves grinding out the noticeable discoloration, application of an adequate base layer on your teeth, layer composite, and polishing your teeth in the right manner.
