Repairing the exterior of your teeth, whether for structural or cosmetic purposes, can be completed using dental bonding. Our expert dental team at Monaco Dentistry can use white, color-matched bonding material to fix teeth that have chips or cracks to protect them from further damage. We can also use bonding to hide dental flaws such as discolorations and misshapen teeth to improve the beauty of your smile.
Dental bonding is a general dental treatment that uses a composite resin that is adhered to the tooth surface.
For repairs, the resin can be applied to fill cracks or chips in the tooth, replacing missing enamel from damage. The composite resin is made from a special combination of plastics and glass that is easily matched to the color of your teeth to hide the repair. The bonding material is cured to create a hard, durable restoration that can last for many years. The process is painless and can be completed in one visit to our office.
Not all tooth repairs using dental bonding are for oral health reasons. Cosmetic tooth bonding is a quick and cost-effective option for hiding flaws in your smile. Gaps in teeth can be closed by adding material to the teeth, closing the space in between. Stains or discolorations that are resistant to whitening can also be hidden with the white bonding material, giving you a whiter smile for improved appearance. Dental bonding is more affordable than porcelain veneers and can accomplish many of the same effects. We also offer dental veneers at our office for those that prefer this option.
If you have a cracked, chipped or misshapen tooth, dental bonding may be an option for repair. Contact Monaco Dentistry in Apollo Beach today to schedule an exam and consultation to learn more about tooth bonding to repair your smile.
