What can dental bonding fix?
Dental bonding, also known as teeth bonding, can add volume to your teeth and further alter their shape, size, and appearance. Dental bonding isn’t just a treatment for cosmetic dentistry. It’s also a cost-effective way to resolve minor dental issues like a broken tooth or cracked tooth. Some other things dental bonding can fix are:
- Chipped Teeth
- Discolored Teeth
- Gapped Teeth
How long does dental bonding last?
Teeth bonding is composed of resin, perfect for molding into the desired shape. When pressed onto your tooth, the resin will be adequately shaped with dental tools, and a special light will be used to harden the material. This adhesive dentistry measure can last three to ten years when avoiding damage and maintaining good oral health. Each time you visit our office, we’ll examine your teeth to ensure your bonding is in good condition.
Can dental bonding be whitened?
Though dental bonding is a great option to restore your tooth to its original appearance, it may not respond to teeth whitening as a natural tooth. If a brighter smile is all you seek, then professional teeth whitening may be the better cosmetic dentistry option. If you already have existing dental bonding and would like to whiten your teeth, Dr. Briggs and our other experienced team members would be happy to find a solution for you!
