Dental bonding and other cosmetic dental procedures for residents of Waterville, Maine & surrounding areas.
A very useful and common dental procedure during which a tooth-colored resin dental material is applied and hardened to restore the tooth and bring back that smile. Dental bonding is very effective compared to its cost. It’s also an efficient procedure in that very little tooth enamel is removed.
Instead, it’s custom applied to each situation on the spot, unlike dental crowns and veneers, which are often sent off to be made in a laboratory. Dental bonding isn’t for every situation.
Depending on the severity and complexity of the situation, dental bonding can be insufficient for areas of the mouth that experience significant bite pressure. However, dental bonding is also often used for minor cosmetic procedures and, at times, as a temporary fix for cosmetic defects.
Possible Cracked, Chipped or Broken Tooth Repair Remedies, Repairs & Treatments
Did you know tooth enamel is one of the toughest substances in your body? While it can be laid low by sugar and poor dental hygiene habits, it can also take physical damage from falls, collisions, or unexpected biting down on a solid piece of something.
Add a tooth with some stage of decay and these unpredictable life moments that end up with you in pain and in need of emergency dental care. This is where we tell you not to worry, and we mean it.
There are a number of things we can do to take away the pain, restore your dental health and bring back that sweet smile of yours!
With a large chip or fracture of a tooth, a possible remedy includes a customized dental crown cemented on top of the tooth. Durable and realistic looking, these last for years.
Cosmetic bonding for minor chips and dental crowns for major chips is the basic plan for most chipped teeth, though every situation is different. Composite resins give it a very natural appearance.
For small cracks in a tooth, we often utilize dental veneers, which are then filled and sealed with a specially formulated composite resin. Larger cracks might necessitate a root canal or dental implants.
