Cracked and chipped teeth can be truly annoying. People with perfectly good smiles might become self-conscious about themselves after mild trauma that breaks off part of one of their front teeth. At daily DENTAL & bracesbar, we can use dental bonding to repair your teeth.
It’s a great way of restoring teeth and making them look the way they used to. Another benefit of dental bonding is that it’s simple and cheap. At daily DENTAL & bracesbar, you don’t need to remove and replace a tooth just because it’s cracked. You can now have it fixed.
What Is Dental Bonding
Thanks to composite resin, we can repair teeth. Composite resin is a handy substance that’s also used in dental fillings. Its size and shape can be modified. While composite resin is white, we can adjust its shade to make it match that of the rest of your teeth.
We’ll prepare the tooth then attach the composite resin to the defective area. If you feel like it’s irregular or sharp, we can make small adjustments so you’re comfortable with it. Composite resin is less durable than natural teeth so you’ll need to be careful with what you eat. It will also stain like your natural teeth. The fact that it’s an artificial product doesn’t mean you shouldn’t brush it.
Alternatives to Bonding
Veneers are another great way of fixing a person’s smile. While bonding acts directly by replacing the missing part of the tooth, veneers just cover it. If the only problem with the chipped tooth is that you don’t like how it looks, veneers are a great way of dealing with it. At daily DENTAL & bracesbar, we have veneers and dental bonding.
Sometimes the chipped tooth can have a sharp edge that hurts the tongue. If that’s the case, we’ll have to find a way to eliminate that problem. Bonding is just one of our many solutions. Rest assured that we’ll thoroughly examine you then make our recommendations based on what we see. We’re here to answer any questions you might have about dental bonding.
