When a tooth is broken or needs a chip repaired, dental bonding is one general dentistry treatment available to restore the tooth to health. Dental bonding uses a special dental resin to fix teeth that are damaged or need cosmetic improvement. At Mercy Dental, we offer dental bonding for repairing teeth and for cosmetic purposes, helping improve the health and beauty of our patients’ smiles.
When tooth material has been lost or a large crack has formed, dental bonding can be the best way to restore the tooth. Dental resin, a special combination of plastics, glass and ceramics, can be formed to replace the missing tooth material. The resin used in dental bonding can be color matched to your tooth so it blends perfectly into your smile while adding strength and protection to your damaged tooth. The resin is formed to mimic the lost tooth material, then cured and hardened. The procedure is painless and can be performed in one visit to our office.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Not all dental bonding is for damaged teeth; sometimes it can be used to improve the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dental bonding is done to cover the discoloration on teeth that cannot be removed with whitening. It can also be used to change the shape or size of the teeth. For example, gaps between the front teeth can be “filled” by adding a small amount of resin to each tooth through dental bonding. This reduces the space between the teeth to improve the aesthetics of the person’s smile.
