The Maladies Helped with Dental Bonding

Posted on 5/15/2017 by Sergio Ortegon
A man covering his smile; because he's chipped his tooth.
Your teeth take a lot of abuse. They get used to do all kinds of things they weren't designed to do. The fact is if you do anything with your teeth other than chew and bite, you can potentially hurt your teeth. They can become chipped or they can break.

You may also have a problem with gaps in your teeth or perhaps you have a decayed tooth that just looks awful. Certainly, you'd like to fix these problems and make your teeth look better than they do now so you can again smile without feeling uncomfortable.

We can help because we now have a technique that won't cost you a fortune but will get the job done. It's called dental bonding. Dental bonding is a breakthrough in dental technology that can help solve a wide variety of problems with your teeth. As with any procedure, it has its pros and cons and it can't solve all of your problems, but it can solve a lot of them.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

When you have to fix a tooth using the dental bonding method, dentists apply a tooth-colored resin to your tooth using adhesives.

These are then "cured" using a high-intensity curing light. The curing process bonds the resin to your natural tooth and our tooth is "rebuilt". This process is relatively painless and does not require anesthesia.

Dental bonding can last for years, but is not as long-lasting as a filling or an implant. It also isn't as strong, so don't think you can start chewing ice again once your tooth is repaired.

Aside from rebuilding a tooth that has decayed or broken, dental bonding has other uses as well. It can be used to reshape your teeth, make them longer, close spaces between your teeth or repair chips and cracks in your teeth. As an added bonus, it looks just like a natural tooth.

Please contact our office if you have any questions about dental bonding.
