Dental bonding can help to improve your appearance and your smile. It is especially ideal for individuals who have large gaps between their teeth or who have cracks and chips that would otherwise be expensive to repair. For this reason, dental bonding is a viable alternative to some other methods available to the patients who need to have it done.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding refers to a tooth-colored material being used to fill in cracks, gaps and chips that are present on one or more teeth. For example, if a patient has a small chip on a front tooth, bonding is a way to even out this chipped area without the need for veneers or crowns. Bonding can also be done incredibly quickly and is noninvasive, with most patients not even needing any type of anesthetic.
Who is a Good Candidate for Bonding?
There are several reasons why we here at Contemporary Dental Care of Mt. Vernon will recommend dental bonding. Some of the patients who benefit the most from having the procedure done include:
- Those with cracks and chips in their teeth
- Those with gaps between their teeth
- Those who have small breaks and fractures
- Those who have small or “gummy” teeth
The procedure can be done quickly and easily in the office, requiring little to no anesthesia and getting you feeling proud about the way that your smile looks. You will also benefit from the fact that most bonding lasts for many years before needing to be redone.
