Dental Bonding, Repair and Restore
In comparison to porcelain veneers, dental bonding requires substantially less removal of the tooth enamel, making it the perfect solution for patients who have only minor decay or tooth damage. With proper oral hygiene and biannual oral health exams with your dentist, dental bonding can last for up to 10 years. Bonding can be reversed and replaced with a more permanent dental veneer or dental crown later on. Dental bonding is a commonly used technique to reshape or repair damaged teeth for younger patients whose smiles are still developing which will be replaced with veneers when the child reaches adulthood.
The bonding material is highly malleable and can be custom colored and shaped to blend with your natural smile. Bonding, when correctly applied, hardened and polished is practically indistinguishable from adjacent teeth. Dental bonding seals out bacteria preventing tooth decay or infection that is often associated with untreated chips or tooth cracks.
Dental bonding can be used to repair:
- Misshaped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Broken teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Missized teeth
Cosmetic dental concerns can often escalate, creating more complex issues. Treating minor tooth damage promptly can prevent the development of decay, tooth infections, or even the need for a tooth extraction. Children and adults should see a dentist as soon as possible after damage occurs to their teeth to allow for conservative treatment to maintain their tooth structure and oral wellness.
