How Bonding Helps with Dental Discoloration
Posted on 7/10/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Are you one of those people who is suffering from dental discoloration? If so, you have no doubt considered getting veneers.
Veneers, to be sure, are a great way to improve the appearance of your smile. Still, between the expense and the fact that your teeth may need to be reshaped, many people simply are not comfortable choosing veneers.
If this is you, you may want to consider dental bonding. This process is fast, easy, and considerably cheaper than veneers. What's more, it can help you get the kind of smile that you have always wanted, and you will find the whole procedure to be quick and simple.
What is Dental Bonding?
Simply put, dental bonding is a treatment that uses a resin to repair damaged teeth or adjust the size of teeth that need cosmetic procedures. It is frequently used in place of amalgam fillings due to the fact that it can blend in with the teeth more easily.
Bonding is placed on the tooth directly over the existing material. This means that no reshaping is necessary—something that many of our patients find to be a big plus.
How Can Bonding Help Discoloration?
Bonding is not used only to repair damaged teeth. It can be applied over a tooth that has become severely discolored to help give it a new appearance.
In the event of a tooth that does have a crack, you will discover the tooth frequently becomes discolored in that area because it may be difficult to keep the cracked area clean. In a case like that, using bonding to repair provides dual benefits: repairing the tooth, and adjusting the discoloration.
If you have questions about dental bonding, please feel free to give us a call, or drop by the office. Let's talk about how you can get a newer, brighter smile.
