Candidates for Tooth Bonding and Composite Dental Bonding
Created on January 11, 2011
There are many ways that Dr. David Peck can improve your dental health and the overall appearance of your smile. Some treatment options will me more involved than others, but there is one dental treatment option in particular that is relative quick, relatively easy, and extremely effective. Just what Springfield, MA cosmetic dentistry treatment option are we referring to? The answer is tooth bonding, which is also known as composite bonding and dental bonding.
Dental bonding is a remedy for problems associated with chips and cracks on the teeth. Dental bonding involves the application of a strong composite resin and filler to the tooth in order to patch up small cracks and chips on a tooth. This composite resin and filler material is safe and is color matched to your tooth so that it does not stand out or look invasive. That’s one of the best things about dental bonding–it is really quite subtle when it’s done effectively.
The best candidates for Springfield, MA dental bonding are people who have minor chips and cracks on their teeth that are noticeable and affect the appearance of their smile. It should be noted, though, that major chipping and cracking of a tooth will need a more substantial dental treatment than dental bonding. For damage to a tooth related to minor or substantial tooth decay, fillings, inlays, onlays, or dental crowns are a better option. If the crack or chip on the tooth is relatively large, the best option for dealing with this is porcelain veneers rather than dental bonding.
It’s important that you consult with Dr. Peck about all of your options for enhancing your smile. His expertise will help guide you during each step of the treatment process.
