Dental Bonding Has a sports injury or accident left you with teeth that are chipped or cracked? Whether your chipped or cracked teeth are putting your oral health at risk or they are simply unsightly and embarrassing, visiting a dentist at North Main Dental Inc. in Dayton for cosmetic dentistry is an excellent way to restore your beautiful smile once again.

One procedure your dentist may recommend is dental bonding. Dental bonding is a fairly common cosmetic dentistry procedure that Dayton dentists perform on a routine basis. The procedure involves applying a piece of tooth-colored resin material to a damaged tooth in order to fill in the missing space, stabilize the tooth and improve the tooth's appearance.

Why Would Someone Need a Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding can be used for a number of various purposes. For example, a dental bonding can restore decayed, cracked or chipped teeth. It can be used to fill gaps in between the teeth, to lengthen teeth or to change the shape of a tooth. A bonding can be used to protect a tooth in case of a cavity or to protect a tooth root in the event of gum recession.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Bonding?

Of all of the restorative cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at North Main Dental Inc. in Dayton, dental bonding is one of the cheapest. It is also fairly quick and easy, as it can be done right in office. It doesn't require much tooth removal, and it may not even require anesthesia. Unfortunately, however, dental bonding is not as stain resistant or as durable as a crown or veneer.

If you are embarrassed about your misshapen smile, make today the day you do something about it. Call North Main Dental Inc. in Dayton to find out if dental bonding is the appropriate cosmetic dentistry procedure for you.
