Dental bonding is when the dentist uses tooth-colored filling material to re-create a missing portion of a tooth. This technology can be used to do “fillings” when there is a cavity, but it can also be used to replace a portion of a missing tooth.
Recently, we had an individual who came in for an emergency visit with fractures on the two front teeth. After reviewing options with our dentists, the individual elected to rebuild these teeth with bonding.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for dental bonding?
- Minor chipped or cracked teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Close, minor gaps in your teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Seeking to change the shape of your teeth
This procedure can be completed in one visit! Our doctors at Mint Hill Dentistry have an “eye” for matching your bonding material exactly to your current tooth color.
The before and after’s can be a big change and a great option for improving your smile!
