Using dental bonding for tooth repair or smile enhancement
- Posted on: May 30 2020
A chipped tooth or a gap between the front teeth can impact the smile in a negative way. When imperfections such as this are present in the smile, many adult patients want to find a way to fix or even disguise these issues. With Dr. Lindsey Marshall of Ardmore, PA, patients can ask about aesthetic solutions for tooth repair and smile enhancement, including composite resin or “dental bonding.”
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is one of several cosmetic solutions available for patients at the practice of Dr. Lindsey Marshall. Ardmore, PA adults find that dental bonding is highly desirable for several reasons. This composite resin material can be applied to areas of the smile, shaped around one or more teeth, cured with a special light, and polished to fix imperfections quickly and affordably. Dental bonding is done in just one appointment, and is a wonderful, more economic alternative to porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is also the same material that is used in dental fillings when decay develops, as it blends in seamlessly with the natural enamel.
What are the benefits of dental bonding?
Dental bonding is:
On the flip side, dental bonding is not stain resistant, so patients who regularly enjoy coffee or tea may need to have their dental bonding replaced more often than patients who take great care in reducing staining to the natural tooth enamel. Patients who are looking for a longer alternative may be suitable for porcelain veneers, which are stain-resistant and can often last a decade or more with proper care. During an evaluation, Dr. Lindsey Marshall will evaluate a patient and decide which solution might be best for their needs.
