How dental bonding can reshape a tooth in one visit
- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
What happens if you damage a tooth? How can you address a breakage or a chip on the teeth near the front of the smile? Many patients are unaware of the many cosmetic solutions that can be used to address these teeth, including dental bonding.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a composite resin material that dentists use in a variety of situations. Composite resin bonding is a clay-like material that can be applied to a tooth, molded to a shape, cured, and then polished to look like natural tooth enamel. Common situations in which a dentist may recommend composite resin bonding include chipped, gapped, or permanently stained teeth. This material is durable, natural-looking, and effective at addressing these cosmetic imperfections. It can be an economical alternative to other solutions including porcelain veneers, which are also available with the team at Boutique Smiles of Manhattan.
What are the risks of a chipped or cracked tooth?
Many patients do not think that a chipped or cracked tooth is more than just an aesthetic concern. However, it is essential that patients visit their dentist when they experience breakage of the teeth. This damage, even when minor, can allow harmful bacteria to enter into the tooth and reach the inner canals of the tooth where the dental pulp is housed. If bacteria enters the dental pulp, it can result in a serious infection that requires immediate dental attention. With the use of dental bonding, not only can the tooth be reshaped and restored to its original appearance, but it can help in keeping bacteria from entering into the tooth and causing more serious concerns.
