It’s unfortunately very easy to chip a tooth, as anyone who’s ever done it before will tell you. A single slip-up can deal permanent damage to your enamel, and it can completely change how your smile looks to others.
However, if you live near Englewood, FL, dental bonding from Davis, Roberts, Boeller & Rife Dental can help you to restore your chipped tooth to perfection! If you want to know how, give us a call and we’d be happy to show you.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure designed to patch up small areas of damage to your teeth, like chips and cracks. If you’ve ever gotten a filling, the process is similar.
We layer a tooth colored composite resin onto your teeth then use a specialized light to harden it into place, almost like spackling a wall. As simple as it sounds, this procedure can be used to deal with all kinds of issues incredibly quickly.
While dental bonding is excellent at addressing small imperfections, it’s limited in its capacity to deal with larger issues. For that reason, the best candidates for the procedure are those with chips, cracks, or other minor issues.
If you have oral health problems, like tooth decay or gum disease, we may also have to deal with those problems before your direct bonding in order to avoid complications. Ultimately, the best way to determine whether you’re a good candidate for this treatment is to come in for a consultation with us.
While dental bonding is one of the simplest cosmetic procedures that there is, it has some substantial advantages over other, more complex treamtents. For one, it’s quick; dental bonding can usually be completed within one or two appointments. The process is completely painless and requires virtually no aftercare.
Dental bonding also doesn’t complicate dental hygiene, making it easy to maintain. And as simple as it is, you can expect the results to last for several years to come. With all this going for it, there’s nothing stopping you from getting the smile you’ve always wanted!
