Dentist explaining an xray to a woman patient.Restoration of your aesthetics is very important. Due to this, periodontists carry out different procedures, invasive and non-invasive, on the victim. In this section, we will have a look at bonding and bone grafting as dental restoration procedures.


Distinguishing between a natural tooth and an artificial one is hard. Composite resin has made these factors almost if not similar. It is attached to the tooth in the case of a crack, filling chips, fractures, discoloration, or minor gaps in teeth.

How is Bonding Done?

Composite resin is attached to the tooth and it assumes its original shape. The resin is meant to match the color of your natural teeth and its original appearance. The hardening of the composite is done using curing light as soon as it is applied. At the end of the appointment, you have a natural and happier smile restoring your confidence, bite, and aesthetics.

Benefits of Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is very fast and effective. This procedure can be carried out on the first visit to your dentist reducing the worry of having to book numerous appointments. It is used to fix minor cosmetic issues. The method is also non-invasive and therefore the tooth structures are left intact after the procedure.

Gum Grafting

If you have a gum recession, you may consider this procedure, however, a dentist's advice is necessary. In this procedure, local anesthesia is necessary to reduce the effects of the incision. This procedure can be done on thin and weak gums that are prone to periodontal diseases.

How it is Done?

In this procedure, gum tissues are extracted from healthy tissue in the victim's mouth and then grafted into the areas with deformations. This process is completely natural since after recovery one cannot spot any difference apart from the restored aesthetics. Therefore, the results of this procedure are considered long-lasting and permanent.

Benefits of Gum Grafting

Gum grafting has several benefits including, reducing the risk of developing gum disease, reducing teeth sensitivity, and improving the appearance of your smile. it is one of the most common procedures performed on victims with periodontal diseases.
