Bonding Fixes Teeth in One Visit

Do you have a damaged tooth?

Having a damaged tooth can dent one’s self confidence. Tooth damage can occur from various issues – decaying, chipped off or broken tooth. By all means, Richmond Dental can help you attain the perfect smile, no matter what dental problems you have faced earlier.

The dangers of a chipped or cracked tooth

A chipped tooth poses more challenges than you might have thought of:

  1. It can cause severe issues in chewing. Your mouth does not adjust automatically when a tooth is lost. Hence, the same chewing pattern can now cause unnecessary pain.
  2. Lip bites: If you have a chipped tooth in the anterior side of your teeth, it can cause lip bites every now and then when you are trying to chew or speak.
  3. Unnatural speech patterns: Since teeth help you enunciate with precision, the loss of even the portion of a teeth can cause changes in the way you speak.
  4. Damage to self-confidence: When you get a frontal tooth chipped, it heavily hampers your confidence. You end up constantly thinking whether someone will notice the chipped tooth or comment on it, when you smile. As a result, you smile less which makes you seem more anti-social than you are.

The dental bonding procedure

Dental bonding is increasingly becoming the go-to solution for both dentists and the patients. It is an inexpensive process that helps you get your tooth fixed mostly in one session with the dentist.

The process involves using resin to create an artificial replacement for the tooth’s part you have lost or which has been damaged. Here, a special mould is used to fit the dental bond into the right space. The replacement is created especially in the laboratory. Experts at Richmond Dental can use dental bonding to help you get rid of chipped tooth, decayed tooth or even the tooth which have lost their natural sheen.

Contouring

The final process of dental bonding includes contouring – where the tooth and the resin replacement are blended together in a way where it becomes virtually impossible to differentiate between them.
