How a Dental Crown Bonds to Your Teeth

Dental bonding is used in a number of dental procedures. This bonding is important because it keeps specific pieces being placed inside the mouth, inside the mouth where they should be. By understanding how the crown is bonded to the tooth, it can provide the patient with more information on how to better care for it and allow it to last longer.

Bonding is used for other dental treatments, not just for crowns, such as veneers. This is a cement-like material, so any prosthetic that needs to be placed into the mouth may have a need for bonding in order to be placed correctly.

Bonding and Your Dental Crown

Your dental crown requires the use of bonding. This bonding is like glue that helps the crown stay in place for a longer period of time. While it is semi-permanent, there are things that can break the bonding and cause the crown to fall off. It is important that the bonding process is complete and that the patient follows all of the directions given by our dental professional.

Bonding is an adhesive that is placed over the tooth that is getting the crown.

The crown is then placed over the adhesive material and tightly pressed down on. There is a specialized light that is used to harden the bonding material that is being used. This will need to be done in order to set the crown in the appropriate place. Once completed, our dental professional will give you further instructions for caring for the crown.
