Dental bonding is a general dentistry treatment that can preserve enamel on your teeth and is more affordable than some of the other dental repair options. The composite resin used to bond and repair chipped or cracked teeth is also often preferred due to the quick nature of the repair and the ability to match tooth color for a pleasing appearance. Dental bonding is often used to create aesthetic improvements to an individual’s smile. The resin can be easily molded and is an extremely durable material.
In teeth bonding with composite resin, tooth-colored material is applied using adhesives and a high intensity curing light to bond the resin to the tooth. To repair chips and cracks or close spaces between teeth, it usually takes less than an hour per tooth. This resin is the same material that is used as an alternative to amalgam in filling cavities. It is highly effective in protecting the root against further cracks or decay when gums recede. With teeth bonding, your dentist does not need to strip the enamel to get the material into its most functional position for strength and structure. This procedure is a simple way to repair, reshape or contour your teeth at a low cost.
Cosmetic Teeth Bonding
Unlike most cosmetic dentistry services, the composite resin in dental bonding is partially or fully covered by most of the insurance in our network. While we offer several options for cosmetic changes to your teeth, teeth bonding is often the most ideal. If you have a chipped or cracked tooth and want to get it bonded as soon as today, contact South Blvd Dentistry and we may have a same day appointment available for you. Although not always painful, we consider chipped or cracked teeth to be something worthy of urgent care attention, since cracked or chipped teeth are often where many dental health problems begin.
