Tooth Bonding for Convenient Smile Improvement
In addition to improving how your smile looks, cosmetic dentistry should also focus on boosting and improving your healthy, natural tooth structure. That means minimizing the amount of tooth structure that is permanently altered during your cosmetic treatment. Tooth bonding is one of the more popular ways of addressing several different types of cosmetic issues without any permanent changes to your tooth structure. The procedure involves using custom-made, tooth-colored composite resin to build up tooth structure that is chipped, worn down, lost, or severely blemished. The resin can be sculpted to your tooth’s ideal contour and polished for a highly lifelike appearance, making tooth bonding as effective as it is convenient.
The Value of Non-Invasive Bonding
When a tooth is severely cracked or fractured, it can require a dental crown to restore it. While a dental crown is highly effective and closely mimics your natural tooth, it also requires a significant amount of preparation in the form of modifying your tooth. By contrast, less severe cases of tooth damage or blemishes can often be corrected without having to modify the whole tooth. Tooth bonding not only restores the appearance of a chipped or lightly cracked tooth, but also helps improve your long-term oral health by keeping more of your healthy tooth structure intact.
