Tooth repair can be achieved several different ways, with dental bonding being one general dentistry option. Instead of filling the tooth, a resin material is bonded to the tooth to restore shape, cover flaws or add strength to the structure. Our team at Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can use dental bonding to repair teeth or to cosmetically enhance the beauty of your smile, right at our office in Dunwoody.
If you have a chipped or broken tooth, dental bonding is often an option for repair. A special dental resin is used to form a new portion of tooth that matches your tooth color. The resin addition is bonded to the tooth using a dental cement that offers a durable, strong adhesion. Once a tooth is repaired using bonding, it can last for many years and is almost impossible to identify. Our experienced dentist will blend and match the bonded material so that it looks natural while protecting your smile.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Another use for dental bonding is cosmetic improvements to your smile. One common issue is gaps between front teeth. Cosmetic bonding is used to fill the gap between the tooth by adding a small amount of the dental resin to each tooth to close the gap. Cosmetic dental bonding can also be used to cover discolorations and fix chipped teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Dental bonding is not painful and can often be done in one visit to our office. For cosmetic purposes, it is much less expensive and quicker than dental veneers but can have similar results. The white dental resin is durable and can often last for ten years or more with good oral health habits.
