If you have any cracked, fractured, or chipped teeth, a process called dental bonding may be the best cosmetic dentistry procedure for you to undergo to fix those issues. While there are many other cosmetic dentistry procedures offered here at Bright Smiles Dental in Casselberry, Florida, bonding is one of the most affordable and widely used.
So with that in mind, let’s look at what it is, how it can help you, and whether the imperfections in your smile can be fixed by dental bonding.
What is it?
Bonding is the process of using a resin to fill in cracks or chips in your teeth. It’s a pretty quick procedure, causes minimal discomfort, and can usually be completed in one appointment.
Dr. Timothy B. Chatterley will apply the resin to the area of your tooth that needs restoration. Then, he will mold it to fit the shape and size of your other teeth. Once that’s completed, the resin is hardened using a UV light. Finally, it’s polished and colored to look just like your natural teeth, and no one will be able to tell you had it done.
Can it fix my smile?
Bonding is generally only used for teeth with minor to moderate cracks or chips. Larger ones will likely need crowns or bridges to repair them.
