A Few Ways Bonding a Tooth Improves It

There are pros and cons to having teeth so unique that they’re literally like no one else’s. For instance, if something happens to one or more of them, there can be no one-size-fits-all solution to improving and/or restoring them. At our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dental office, that means we customize every treatment we recommend to suit each patient’s unique dental needs, and to help keep the entire process as minimally invasive as possible. That’s why, for many patients, we recommend customized tooth bonding to improve teeth that experience a wide range of cosmetic concerns.

It can restore worn tooth structure

Worn down tooth structure isn’t the most common complaint when it comes to a smile’s appearance. For instance, your teeth may gradually stain or suddenly chip long before they ever experience excessive structural wear. Still, teeth can become worn over time for a variety of factors, such as uneven bite pressure due to things like crooked teeth, or a habit of constantly grinding your teeth together (a potential sign of bruxism). When this occurs, the effect may be noticeable enough to influence the rest of your smile’s appearance, not to mention your bite’s balance and proper function.

It can easily fix chips or small cracks

Aside from tooth wear, your teeth might also become damaged due to things like accidental trauma or biting down on something too hard. Chips and cracks in your tooth’s surface can also have a significant impact on your oral health as well as your smile’s appearance, and treating them should be a top priority once you notice them. With tooth bonding, we may be able to repair the damage to your tooth and restore its strength and integrity, allowing you to enjoy a healthier looking tooth while also restoring the tooth’s ability to function properly.

It can fill a cavity while blending in discreetly

While tooth bonding is usually considered a cosmetic dental treatment for its ability to improve your tooth’s appearance, the composite resin used to make it has other, more significant benefits to your smile, as well. For example, if you develop a cavity, then the tooth infection might change part or all of your tooth’s appearance. Filling the cavity with biocompatible composite resin, or tooth bonding material, allows your dentist to successfully restore the tooth while improving its healthy, natural appearance.
