Avoid the unpleasant appearance of a cracked or chipped tooth!
If you’re suffering from the pain of having a fractured, chipped or discolored tooth, an aesthetic dentist may recommend the process of composite bonding. Composite bonding is a tooth-colored adhesive resin which is used to help repair the tooth aesthetically. While this process should be pre-approved by a professional, it’s a highly-recommended solution for those with minor damages and dental issues. Here are some reasons you should consider composite bonding, and why it benefits your smile.
- A Timely Process
Indeed, bonding can often be completed in one dental visit, all within the span of an hour, taking the hassle out of scheduling multiple appointments. If the fractured tooth is fixed immediately with composite bonding this will eliminate the need for further appointments.
- Keep Your Tooth’s Structure
One of the primary concerns of patients is the idea that they may be losing their teeth, or that their smile will end up crooked because of cracking. With composite bonding, this will strengthen the original tooth’s structure, allowing your teeth to stay natural without additional issues.
- Correct Shade of Color
Another fear often brought up is that the resin could possibly outshine the native teeth, or worse, it could make the natural teeth look darker. On the contrary – aesthetic dentistry has advanced enough to allow for different coloring options to be chosen. Your dental professional will examine your mouth and find the right shade for the bonding component. This will keep your teeth congruous with the binding agent and avoid the dangers of spotted teeth.
- Easy to Maintain
While it’s true that staining elements, such as coffees, teas, sodas, and a litany of other foods can ultimately affect the longevity and color of the bond, the maintenance process overall is standard and simple. Ensure that you brush and floss daily for the best results, as this will improve its longevity. And if the bonding ever has any issues, a simple touch-up or replacement will take care of any leftover concerns.
