Cosmetic dental bonding is an economical and popular dental treatment that can help patients restore their smiles. Tooth bonding repairs tooth damage including cracks, chips, and discoloration. During treatment, we use a composite resin that is shaped onto the tooth. The resin is hardened with light to bond it to the affected tooth. Once the bonding treatment is complete, your enamel will be stronger and blend in with natural surrounding teeth.
Dr. Jason Baldwin offers dental bonding in his Truckee, CA, and Loyalton, CA dental offices. He is dedicated to helping his patients restore their smiles with an array of general, cosmetic, and restorative dental treatments. Learn more about how tooth bonding can benefit you below:
When is Dental Bonding Needed?
Chipped, cracked, discolored, or crooked teeth can be treated with cosmetic bonding. The bonding material protects the exposed roots of teeth caused by gum recession and gum disease. Composite resin can also protect the tooth roots from infection and sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages.
Even if your damaged teeth are healthy and do not require gum or tooth infection treatment, bonding can change their appearance and color for a more uniform look. Cosmetic bonding can fill gaps between teeth and help patients renew their smiles.
Because composite bonding treatment is not as permanent as porcelain veneers, it is a great option for patients who want an entry point to cosmetic dental care. Following tooth bonding treatment, remember to avoid chewing on hard candy, ice, or other hard or sticky foods. This can crack the composite material.
