A cracked or chipped smile can have a big impact on your confidence. Don’t despair though – dental bonding is one solution which can help to restore your teeth.
Dental bonding helps with a number of problems and can be considered for chipped or cracked teeth, closed spaces between teeth, improving the appearance of discoloured teeth or even making teeth look longer.
Dental bonding can also help to change the shape of teeth or just protect a portion of the tooth’s root which has been exposed due to gums receding.
What does the dental bonding procedure involve?
The dental bonding procedure involves the use of a durable tooth-coloured plastic which is applied and hardened onto the surface of teeth. This ‘bonds’ the material to the tooth and helps to restore and improve your natural smile.
Composite white fillings are a popular choice because the shade can be matched exactly to your own teeth.
Using the right composite materials can give a much better result than old/amalgam silver fillings, which look unsightly when you smile.
The procedure is not painful but it can be done under local anaesthetic if you are particularly sensitive.
Why choose dental bonding?
Although it isn’t quite as strong, dental bonding is a great restorative procedure and alternative to more expensive cosmetic dentistry like veneers or crowns.
Dental bonding is worth considering if you want a solution to a cosmetic problem; many dentists view dental bonding as a good choice for small cosmetic changes to the teeth.
