What can be fixed with dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a great option used to repair small chips, fractures, or even discoloration on your teeth. In some cases, bonding may also be used to fill in small gaps and spacing between teeth, change the shape of your teeth, or eliminate embarrassing size discrepancies. Bonding is also sometimes used to repair the damage caused by gum disease and tooth recession. It's a quick and effective way to change the appearance of your smile or improve your oral health, and it can typically be completed during one short appointment.
We use the same composite resin material that we use for dental fillings, which is pliable and easy to work with. Composite is bonded directly to your tooth and can be customized to match your existing teeth so the bonding will complement your smile. Composite is durable, so you'll enjoy normal function when you eat and chew. You'll also be able to brush and floss like normal, making it easy to care for. Bonding can last for many years with excellent home care and regular checkups with your dental team.
