When is Dental Bonding the Best Restorative Solution?
Posted on 5/20/2018 by Brandon Cooley
Dental bonding is commonly recognized as a form of cosmetic dentistry. It's generally used to improve the appearance of your teeth by covering stains, changing the shape and size of your teeth and brightening the color. But did you know that dental bonding is also used to restore your teeth?
How do you know if dental bonding is right for your teeth? Well, start by giving us a call and setting up a consultation. Our staff will gladly review options with you and evaluate your smile!
Chip Off the Old Tooth
Teeth chip, it's just a fact. Whether it's from day to day things like fingernail biting, chewing on pens or crunching ice, they can chip.
Dental bonding is an inexpensive and relatively quick and easy way to restore your chipped teeth. In the past, lightly grinding out the chips was an acceptable way of hiding them. This can result in the teeth appearing shorter. How about using dental bonding to lengthen and hide the chips?
After your initial consultation with our staff, we can determine exactly what needs to be done to restore your smile. While veneers are a popular option for improving color and shape of a tooth, there are times when an alternative solution is required.
Restoring your teeth through the use of dental bonding does not require the involvement of a dental laboratory and usually does not require anesthetic of any sort.
Dental bonding is also ideal for growing adolescents who have chipped a tooth and need repairs. The growing mouth of a teenager often needs to wait until the teeth have finished maturing before applying a permanent type of dental restoration.
Please call us today if you have any questions about restoring your smile through the use of veneers, dental bonding or any of our other cosmetic dental procedures. Our team is happy to help you restore your smile to its former glory!
