What Is Dental Etching And Bonding?

Dental etching and bonding are two dental procedures that go hand in hand. The aim of dental etching is to create a rough surface on the tooth to allow the cosmetic bonding materials to adhere better. This can be done using dental etching gels, also known as “etch”, which dissolve some of the minerals of the dentine and enamel. This means that the dentine and enamel can better absorb the bonding material, guaranteeing a secure, long-lasting adhesion. Sometimes etching gels containing phosphoric acid are favoured during this process, due to their adhesion effectiveness and compatibility with both enamel and dentine.

Dental bonding is a type of restorative dentistry that can be carried out for cosmetic purposes or to fill gaps, chips and fractures between teeth. It can also be used to fix discolouration. The process is done by attaching a composite resin, colour-matched to the patient’s teeth, to restore their appearance.

Why Is Dental Etching Required For Bonding?

The process of etching is an essential step of dental bonding! The etching is microscopic and undetectable by the naked eye but acts to roughen the dental enamel, ensuring the bonding will adhere to it. If a dental professional doesn’t etch the teeth before the bonding process, there are a number of risk factors for patients. These include poor and substandard results that will lack longevity and will almost certainly need to be redone, as well as the risk of decay. Decay and other teeth-related issues can arise if the bonding is not correctly adhered to, as bacteria can get between your teeth and the cosmetic bonding. Etching is therefore vital to ensure optimal patient comfort, oral health and results!
