Bonding has revolutionized cosmetic dentistry. With this technique we can cover stains, close gaps, reshape teeth, and repair chips. Through the bonding process, tooth-colored materials called composite resins or porcelain veneers are bonded over problem teeth. The restructured tooth is then contoured and polished, and the patient is left with an eye-pleasing smile. It does not last as well as a porcelain crown but you can save two thirds of the cost and it usually can be done in one appointment. The repair in some mouths will pick up stain and because it is resin, will wear and may break because it is not as strong as tooth.
Repair broken or chipped teeth with dental bonding
Bonding is an increasingly popular treatment option for people with chipped or broken teeth. Unlike fillings and inlays, direct composite bonding requires little or no tooth reduction. It is used to recreate a perfect smile by attaching filling material directly to the tooth original enamel and dentin. By adding to the current shape of the tooth, we can create a surface with the same appearance and function as the original tooth. Bonding is less costly than crowns and porcelain veneers, and with proper maintenance it can be long-lasting.
Dr. Tara Pool can use dental bonding in several ways. However, the technique is most useful for repairing chipped teeth. The bonding materials can be designed to match perfectly with surrounding teeth. Dental bonding makes it nearly impossible to detect that there was ever a broken tooth.
