Chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and worn teeth can often be easily and quickly repaired with tooth bonding in our Greeley dental office. Dr. Thompson is an experienced and skilled cosmetic dentist who offers a personalized approach to your cosmetic and restorative dental health needs. Tooth bonding can provide a quick, painless and economical solution for a range of cosmetic and dental health concerns.
Tooth Bonding: How Does It Work?
The tooth bonding process is relatively simple and similar in many ways to a white dental filling. Dr. Thompson will use a composite resin material that is color matched to your natural smile and gently sculpted into place. Minimal tooth structure is removed when using tooth bonding and the process is completed in one visit.
The composite material is sealed, polished and will support the beauty and structure of your smile for up to 10 years with good oral hygiene and routine dental care, where we can monitor for signs of damage.
What can tooth bonding be used for?
Tooth bonding can be the perfect solution for a range of common dental concerns:
- Chipped teeth: chips and minor tooth damage can be repaired with tooth bonding, restoring the structural integrity of your tooth and preventing further damage or decay.
- Gaps between teeth: small gaps, often called diastemas can be closed with tooth bonding in most cases.
- Worn teeth: teeth that are worn due to teeth grinding or other dental problems can be restored with tooth bonding.
- Discolored teeth: if you have one or more teeth that are discolored and considered resistant to teeth whitening products, tooth bonding can be used to create a whiter and more aesthetically pleasing smile.
Is tooth bonding appropriate for children?
Tooth bonding is often the perfect solution for younger patients who have damaged teeth or cosmetic concerns. It is economical and completed quickly and easily when compared to other alternatives including dental veneers. Dr. Thompson will recommend tooth bonding when necessary for maintaining the health and structure of your child’s smile.
