Cosmetic or dental bonding is a dental procedure that can be used to correct small chips or minor fractures in the teeth. The process is simple, effective, and long-lasting. The team of dentists at Dr. Michael E. Huguet and Associates in Pleasant Hill CA provides preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry solutions.

Problems That Chipped Teeth Can Cause

Pleasant Hill dental patients who have chipped teeth often find that have a chipped front tooth leaves them feeling self-conscious and embarrassed to laugh or smile. If the chipped tooth has a sharp edge it can also cause cuts to the inner mouth or tongue, which may result in infection. A chip can also weaken the structure of the tooth and increase the tooth’s sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.

The Cosmetic Bonding Solution

Cosmetic bonding is a simple dental procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored resin to a chipped or cracked tooth. The resin is colored to match the natural teeth, and once applied can be shaped to replace the missing section of the chipped tooth. The results of cosmetic bonding are dramatic. Once your teeth have been restored you will look healthier and feel more confident. A bonded tooth looks perfectly natural so no one will know any different. The cosmetic bonding material is strong and durable because the resin is built up in layers to enhance its overall strength. Dental bonding typically lasts for several years and can be touched up occasionally to maintain its strength.

There’s no need to suffer the embarrassment of chipped teeth any longer. Cosmetic bonding is an effective and affordable solution for a smile makeover.
