Do you have serious dental damage? Is your smile suffering due to previously sustained damage to your teeth? If so, dental damage can be fixed with dental bonding. With dental bonding therapy, materials such as porcelain and resin can be applied to teeth to conceal and correct discolorations, cracks, stains, cavities, and many other forms of ailments that can plague your oral health.
If you are simply looking for an aesthetic fix with dental bonding, it is first important to understand what you will need to do to apply the materials. If the damage is severe, the tooth will need to be prepared for the bonding by cleaning the affected area. Dental bonding is effective for improving the look of your smile because the materials used can easily match the look of natural teeth.
In the case of cavities, the decay must first be stopped, and a filling must be used to completely seal off the hole. If a crack remains in the filling, it may still be possible for bacteria to enter the tooth and do harm to the pulp. If left unchecked, this damage can turn into an infection and tooth loss.
