Naturally, teeth are robust. They are designed to tear through food and help you chew. What’s more, adult teeth are meant to last for a lifetime. The reason teeth are so durable is because of the outer enamel. This sturdy shell is one of the most substantial body parts.
However, it is not hard to crack or chip a tooth. It doesn’t always take a hard punch or a fly ball in the face to cause damage. Ice cubes, glass bottles, and even the childbirth process can lead to a cracked tooth. If you suffer from bruxism, are prone to tooth decay, or produce an excessive amount of mouth acid, your enamel is even more vulnerable. Fortunately, Indian Creek Family Dentistry offers a variety of restorative and cosmetic dentistry solutions to fix your smile. Bonding is one of the most affordable and effective ways to repair tooth damage.
Bonding material can restore minor tooth damage and prevent further damage. If you think dental bonding is right for you, please schedule a consultation.
While bonding is considered a cosmetic treatment, it is also a therapeutic option. The tooth-colored composite resin fuses with the natural enamel. As a result, both the aesthetic appearance and functionality of the impaired tooth is returned.
