Choosing the right tooth treatment is just as valuable as getting treatment. Dental bonding is an excellent way to repair chipped, discolored or crooked teeth. It can be less costly than other services, and it leaves your teeth beautiful, straight and healthy.
For patients with minor problems, or needing a repair quickly due to a small chip in your tooth, dental bonding may be a more conservative fix.
What Problems Does Teeth Bonding Correct?
- Small gap in-between your front teeth
- Small chips in enamel
- Temporary repair of a fractured front tooth (as long as a significant portion of the tooth remains)
- Shaping a tooth that may be out of alignment
- Below is an actual case where Dr. Damon placed bonding on two short teeth and left all the other front teeth alone.
What about Porcelain Veneers and what is the difference?
Porcelain Veneers are reserved for serious teeth issues while dental bonding generally is used on minor problems. If you only have minor chips, discoloration or crookedness on one or two teeth, tooth bonding may be a the better choice. However, if you are unhappy with all your teeth, veneers are a better option. Veneers fix the same problems as tooth bonding but on a larger scale
How Does Dental Bonding Work?
Dr. Damon will apply a composite resin to your tooth. To mimic the multiple colors of teeth we will put several different shades to mimic as close to natural as we can. Dr. Damon is proud to only place Renamel for bonding, a composite that he feels is the best on the market. Using dental bio-materials in a multi-step process, the composite resin will be bonded to your teeth. Tooth bonding can be done on part of a tooth or the entire surface of the tooth. Here is a youtube video of a patient experience. It is not gross or anything, but can provide some nice insight. Click here.
