Damaged Teeth and Dental Bonding
For anyone suffering from chipped or fractured teeth, it can often keep them from smiling as much as they should. Luckily, dental bonding can be an ideal solution for many patients that do not want to fully commit to more invasive veneers. The process of dental bonding is a quick and convenient process that is typically performed by your dentist in just one visit.
Why Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is one of the best cosmetic dentistry options since it can easily help you restore your natural smile and is ideal for correcting a variety of smaller problems. Some of the many dental issues that dental bonding can restore:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Teeth with gaps
- Discolored teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Filling a cavity
- Asymmetrical teeth
Dental Bonding Process
The process of dental bonding involves using a high-quality bonding material referred to as resin. It is extremely durable and natural looking. The color of the resin can also be perfectly matched to the color of your teeth, meaning they will blend in a near-seamless fashion with the natural tooth. After a small amount of surface material is removed, the bonding material is applied. Your dentist will masterfully mold the resin to match the look of the tooth and then harden it using a high powered light. Once the bonding material has hardened, it can be polished and buffed to bring out a lovely polish and shine.
Many people incorrectly assume that damaged teeth can only be corrected with invasive and expensive procedures that take several visits. While veneers, braces and other procedures may be necessary for more damaged or extremely crooked teeth, dental bonding is a smart way to repair your smile in a cost-effective way.
