Did you know that tooth enamel is one of the hardest substances in the body, even tougher than bone? Even with this amazing strength, wear, tear and trauma can break through the enamel and into the tooth material. When you have a piece of tooth break off, we can repair it at the Center for Restorative, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry. We offer dental bonding as part of our general dental care that can restore your tooth and protect it from further damage.
Dental bonding uses a special resin to repair teeth. This resin is made from plastics and ceramic and can be color-matched to your tooth, so the repair is almost invisible. The resin can be formed to replace missing tooth material on a chipped or broken tooth. Once it is formed and bonded to the tooth, our dental experts polish the surface, so the bonded area blends with your natural tooth. The resin protects the inner tooth from exposure to decay and bacteria while restoring the beauty of your smile.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is not only used for tooth repairs. It can also enhance the appearance of your smile. If you have a gap between teeth, dental bonding can be used to close the gap by adding a small amount of resin to each tooth. Bonding can also be used to hide many dental flaws, like discolorations or uneven teeth. The procedure is quick and affordable, especially when compared to other cosmetic services like dental veneers. Dental bonding usually only requires one visit. It is virtually painless and perfect for fast improvements to your smile.
