Advantages of Tooth Bonding
Tooth bonding is both a cosmetic and restorative procedure that can be used to correct a range of issues. For cosmetic issues, tooth bonding can provide an even and natural look to teeth that are crooked, unevenly spaced, and gapped. Structurally, tooth bonding can be used to repair teeth that are chipped or cracked, broken, or weakened by decay.
The material used for tooth bonding is a composite resin. Much like a sculptor's clay, the resin used in tooth bonding can be manipulated by one of our Bellevue Cosmetic Dentists to provide a seamless, straight appearance.
Why Consider Tooth Bonding
Tooth bonding offers several advantages when used as an alternative to metal fillings to seal out decay. Advantages of tooth bonding include:
Many of these benefits apply to tooth bonding's usage as a solution for chipped and broken teeth as well. As an added benefit, unlike dental crowns, tooth bonding does not require tooth structure to be removed when repairing broken teeth.
As a cosmetic solution, tooth bonding is a faster, less invasive method of perfecting minor issues than other options such as porcelain veneers. Tooth bonding is less expensive than veneers and can be used to provide a similar aesthetic, making it an ideal solution for many of our patients.
