Chipped or cracked teeth can hurt and also cost you your self-esteem. Fortunately, there is an affordable and trustworthy solution. At Bensalem Family Dentistry in Bensalem, PA, we offer dental bonding; a strong restoration option that is able to resemble your actual tooth.
Dental bonding is the process of using a composite resin to smooth over imperfections like chips, cracks, gaps, misalignments, and discoloration. It restores the strength of your tooth while repairing the look of your smile. The resin will be chosen in the shade that matches your tooth so it looks completely natural. For those who want to use bonding to whiten their smile, a resin is chosen in a lighter shade and then applied over the whole smile. For cracks, chips, misaligned teeth, gaps, and more, the resin is smoothed over the imperfection. The resin is then hardened and polished so that it shines like a natural tooth. Only light etching is needed to prepare the tooth for the resin, so there are no major changes to your tooth.
While keeping your natural teeth intact is ideal, life does not always allow that. Our strong and natural-looking dental bonding is able to bring back your smile and the function of your teeth.
