Over time, teeth can become stained or damaged from drinking or eating specific foods as well as daily chewing and eating. One method used by dentists to treat these kinds of stains and damage is through a dental resurfacing process called dental bonding. In this procedure, a dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material to the tooth surface with adhesives and a high intensity curing light. In most cases, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes – treating stains and chips, or even closing large gaps or spaces between teeth.
If your teeth are damaged or stained, speak with a dental professional about the benefits of bonding. To learn more about dental bonding and if it can work for you, contact an Austin dentist of BridgeView Dental today at 512-347-8299 and get your confident and beautiful smile back.
Dental Bonding Uses
There are a number of different uses for dental bonding. Talk with your dental professional today to talk about how dental bonding can:
- Repair teeth that are decaying
- Filling cavities
- Repair a cracked or chipped tooth
- Make teeth look longer or to change the shape of the teeth
- Protecting the tooth’s root if it has been exposed
- Treat stains
Dental bonding is a popular choice to use over crowns for many people because it is far less time consuming and can be completed in a single visit. Unfortunately, bonding isn’t a permanent solution and isn’t as durable as veneers.
