Accidents happen to us every single day, and they cause us to crack or chip a tooth. Luckily for you, Spektor Dental has a procedure to fix all of your minor dental imperfections. It's called bonding, and it can restore your chipped tooth to their original glory.
What is Bonding?
Bonding is made of plastic and powdered glass to make it really shiny and strong. Bonding used to be made of metals such as gold and silver. Now, people want white fillings, so that no one can tell anything was wrong with their teeth in the first place.
We use bonding to fix all kinds of issues. You may have a chip in your tooth. You might also have a crack in your tooth as well. Bonding can even fix discolored teeth as well. You may have a discolored tooth because of medication or an injury - and bonding can make it match your other teeth.
Bonding can also fix misshapen teeth, as well as teeth that are poorly spaced. We can make your teeth sparkle and shine, and make sure that compliments come your way for your “perfect' teeth. Only we'll know your teeth didn't start that way - and we won't tell.
How Long Does Bonding Last?
If you take care of your teeth, bonding can last a long time. You need to know that while we think bonding agents are amazing, they are not foolproof. Bonding cannot match the strength of your actual tooth, so you will need to be careful. First, you need to understand that if you don't brush and floss your teeth every day, and come to see us twice a year, you can develop cavities underneath the bonding agent. You can also crack or break your bonded tooth as well. Don't chew hard foods such as ice or apples. Instead, cut your apples up and stop crunching ice.
We make sure your teeth are as clean as possible, and then we apply the bonding agent. If you are not satisfied that your teeth are as white as possible, it would help if you whitened them before bonding. Otherwise, your bonding won't match the rest of your teeth.
