If the time has come to repair damaged teeth that may have arisen, it is important to assess how much damage has been done. If you have sustained substantial damage to your teeth, a dental crown may be required. However, if the pulp has been damaged, a root canal will be needed. In some cases, the damage is too severe to save a tooth, so a tooth extraction is required. However, in many situations, all that is needed is a simple dental bonding.
In order to enhance the look of your teeth, it is essential to make sure all dental damage that is present is treated as soon as possible. If dental damage has occurred whether through oral accidents or injuries, or a lifetime oral health problems, dental bonding treatments can be used to restore the look and function of teeth. Dental bonds are also extremely durable and can last up to ten years before they may need to be repaired or replaced.
Dental bonding treatments are also extremely effective as dental fillings. Composite resin bonds are often used to repair decayed teeth and fill in any cavities that may be present. If you have a hole in your tooth enamel, it will need to be filled in before an infection and tooth loss can occur. Dental bonding treatments can be used to help protect the tooth, and for many other issues as well.
Because dental bonds are designed to look natural, they can be used to improve the look and function of teeth with high-quality materials such as resin or porcelain. Another reason dental bondings can help is because they can correct cracks and chips, discolorations, spacing issues, and can even be used to alter the shape of teeth if necessary. Furthermore, dental bonds can be used to protect a portion of a tooth’s root if it should be exposed due to gum recession.
