Don’t Let Chips or Cracks Define Your Smile — Discover Teeth Bonding Benefits

Even using the best dental hygiene, you can experience physical damage to teeth, such as a crack, chip, or some other imperfection that can ruin your smile’s appearance and possibly compromise that tooth’s health. In these situations, cosmetic dental bonding might be the best course of action, and Dr. David Cannon of Cannon Dental is among the most talented practitioners of this treatment.

What is Dental Composite Bonding, and How Does It Work?

Dental composite bonding uses a composite resin material that’s colored to match the specific shade of your teeth to give the bond a seamless appearance.

Dr. Cannon first roughens your tooth’s surface lightly, allowing the composite resin to form a secure bond with your tooth.

Next, Dr. Cannon carefully places the composite resin onto the treated tooth before sculpting it into the right shape.

Finally, he hardens and finishes by smoothing, trimming, and polishing the tooth to create the perfect result.

Patients elect to use dental composite bonding because it:

  • It is less expensive than porcelain veneers.
  • It can be completed in one visit.
  • Requires less alteration and removal of natural tooth material than other forms of cosmetic restorations.

Reasons Dr. Cannon would recommend dental cosmetic bonding

  • Gaps in between teeth
  • Chips
  • Permanently stained and discolored teeth
  • Teeth differently shaped or smaller

Please remember that while the dental composite resin is very durable, the material will not be as strong as veneers, porcelain crowns, or your natural tooth enamel, which means they are more susceptible to breaking or staining.

Therefore, it’s vital to avoid chewing on complex objects like pencils or ice and ask about a custom-made mouthguard if you grind and clench your teeth during sleep. Most patients anticipate their dental composite bonding to last between 3-5 years before they require repair.
