Contact our office to find out whether your tooth concern can be resolved with bonding.
Bonding is a dental procedure that involves applying a composite resin to a tooth to repair damage that has occurred. It is a cost-effective solution for cracked, chipped, and discolored teeth, as well as to fill in gaps between the teeth. If you have a tooth that is shorter than others in your mouth, applying the composite resin can add length to that tooth to make it look more uniform. At the office of Paul D. Nifong, Jr., DDS, we provide bonding as a treatment option for a range of dental problems.
We believe that the benefits of dental bonding make it an excellent option. By applying the material to your tooth, we can restore the appearance of your smile and provide a functional result that helps you chew more comfortably. The composite resin applied to the tooth hardens when exposed to UV light, so it should function as a normal tooth. It can chip if you bite down on something particularly hard or crunchy, but bonding material is quite strong so it typically holds up well under normal circumstances. The procedure is quick and painless, which means you don’t have to worry about numbing medication or anesthesia.
In cases of severe damage or tooth decay, bonding may not be a viable option.
