Are you tired of hiding your smile when you meet someone for the first time? Wouldn’t it feel great to smile with confidence? Many patients avoid repairing their teeth because they think that treatment will be costly and time-consuming, however, dental bonding is a very cost effective and quick way to repair certain dental issues. Most bonding cases can be completed in one appointment at Smith Dental. Here are 3 issues that you may not have realized dental bonding can repair.
Small Chips or Fractures
We use composite resin for dental bonding, which is the same material used for dental fillings. This means that it can be custom shaded to match your teeth and complement your smile. Because it bonds directly with your tooth, it’s ideal for repairing small chips or fractures in your teeth.
When you suffer from gum recession, it often leaves your roots exposed, which can be quite painful. Unfortunately, your gum tissue will never grow back, so bonding is actually a great way to fill in the open spaces and protect that exposed root from further damage, which will also alleviate your sensitivity.
Gaps and Size Discrepancies
You may not have realized that dental bonding can actually change the shape and appearance of your tooth. For patients with small gaps or spacing between their teeth, bonding can often close those gaps. It can also be used to lengthen or build up a tooth that is smaller than the others.
