This means the use of versatile cosmetic dentistry options such as porcelain veneers as well as other kinds of advanced aesthetic procedures. A less invasive yet also rather versatile and effective treatment option is dental bonding, which we'd like to consider in brief right now.

About Dental Bonding

Dental bonding refers to the use of special tooth-colored resins and composites. This bonding material is carefully color-matched to a tooth and then painted on in order to mask imperfections and to treat minor dental health issues as well.

Bonding is a great option for a number of different issues, and as you are about to read, it is quite an effective and versatile means of addressing various issues.

Dental Bonding for Chips and Cracks

One of the most common uses for dental bonding is the patching up of chips and cracks. Minor chips and cracks that do not pose a major structural issue for a tooth can easily be masked through dental bonding.

Dental Bonding for Severe Tooth Stains

When a tooth stain is too deeply set for teeth whitening treatment or originates from within the patient's tooth structure, dental bonding is a good option to consider. The bonding material will mask the stain from view and leave your smile looking pristine in the process.

Dental Bonding for Minor Tooth Gaps and Reshaping Needs

Sometimes a tooth may have minor misalignments and problems with spacing, leading to a number of aesthetic flaws. Dental boding materials are relatively strong and can be used to improve the overall appearance of a tooth or multiple teeth, lengthening, reshaping, and revising the spacing and appearance in the process.

Dental Bonding to Address Minor Tooth Decay

When a small cavity has formed on a tooth, a minor filling may be used to restore the tooth structure. The filling may be made of the dental bonding material, meaning that it will be set in the cavity and will blend in seamless with the patient's natural tooth structure.

Dental Bonding Can Protect Exposed Tooth Roots

Gum recession can lead to tooth decay occurring at the gumline or on the exposed tooth roots. In order to protect the tooth roots from potential dental issues, dental bonding is sometimes used as a protective and preventative measure.
