An urgent care dentist’s toolkit is filled with handy treatments for fixing all types of tooth problems. In the past few years, porcelain veneers and dental implants have received a lot of attention.
In today’s post, we are going to talk about an effective, yet relatively uncelebrated dental treatment that has been used successfully for decades. We’re talking about dental bonding.
The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and natural looking. It is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.
Dentists use bonding to correct tooth problems caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can guard tooth roots if the gums have shrunk.
Discolored teeth can also be lightened with bonding. Since bonding material is easily molded, teeth can be lengthened or re-shaped to blend with the other teeth. Bonding is frequently used as part of a total cosmetic dental smile makeover.
