|With today's advancements in the dental industry, there is no reason that anyone should live with a damaged smile. There are several ways a smile can be repaired, with the treatment type determined by the dental problem.
A common cosmetic dentistry treatment for a damaged smile is dental bonding. With this treatment type, a flexible composite resin is used to reshape or repair the tooth. The resin can easily bond with tooth enamel and then hardened to repair teeth. This treatment provides instant results and can help you feel more confident with your smile!
What is Dental Bonding?
The process of dental bonding will see a composite resin placed on the tooth or teeth to repair the damage. The resin bonds to the enamel of the tooth and then once it is exposed to curing light, it will harden.
After hardening, the resin creates a stronger tooth as the bonding repaired any damage that existed. The composite resin will be tinted to look like your real teeth, which helps the repair to blend in with your smile.
What is Bonding Used For?
Dental bonding is a treatment used for several issues involving the appearance of the teeth. Common issues can include cracks and chips, broken teeth, changes in color, worn teeth or imperfections.
When you have such teeth issues, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. With the help of dental bonding, your smile can be repaired, restoring your self-confidence once again!
Examples of how bonding is used can easily be seen with cracks and chips or breaks in the teeth. With a chip, the composite resin is used to fill in the missing area. A crack can also be covered with resin to restore the tooth in full. With breaks in the teeth, bonding is used to restore the broken portion of the tooth.
