There are several reasons why tooth bonding might be used.
It can help to restore teeth that are decaying, seal cavities, and close spaces between your teeth. Treatments can also hide the appearance of discolouration.
It can also repair chips and cracks, change the shape of your teeth, and protect your roots if you have receding gums.
Having your teeth bonded is a relatively simple procedure. It does not usually require anesthetic, unless you are having it done in the place of a filling.
Dental bonding is quite inexpensive, because the bonding can be done in one visit, unlike a veneer or a crown, which requires measuring, and then sending off to a lab for the work to be done.
This procedure is quicker to fit, and fairly stain resistant as long as you take good care of it. You may need to get it re-done periodically, and in some cases it can chip or break off your tooth if it is put through excessive wear and tear, but it should last for a long time if you take good care of it.
Here at our clinic, we will examine your teeth and pick a resin that matches your existing teeth for as natural a look as possible.
As always, we encourage anyone who’s thinking about cosmetic dentistry to come in a see Drs. Fox and Cool for a consultation. This assessment will provide you with the best choices when it comes to improving your smile.
