Are minor flaws spoiling the appearance of your smile? While tooth enamel is very strong for the most part, it can chip, break or crack at times. Our team of dentists near you can fix chipped teeth and complete your smile using veneers or bonding material.
How Does Your Tooth Chip?
It doesn’t always take trauma or a blow to the face to chip tooth enamel.
Your tooth can chip on a glass bottle, biting on a fork, or when biting down on hard foods. It’s even easier to damage your tooth enamel if you suffer from decay, teeth grinding, or thin enamel. Consuming excessively acidic foods and drinks causes erosion of tooth enamel, causing it to weaken and break easily.
Bonding in New Westminster, BC can repair chipped or cracked teeth and restore the beauty of your smile.
Is Tooth Bonding at Asante Dental Centre Right for You?
The bonding material is made of composite resin, which can be used to repair a wide range of cosmetic issues. Reliable bonding treatment near you can transform your smile in several ways:
- It can mask stains and discolorations that cannot be removed with teeth whitening bleach.
- Bonding can seal gaps between the teeth, which not only rejuvenates your smile but also prevents food particles from sticking to the gum surface.
- If you have too small teeth, our dentists in New Westminster, BC use composite resin to make them longer.
- We can modify the shape of your tooth to mimic your other teeth.
If you’ve lost a tooth, we may recommend more lasting restorations like implants or bridges to restore your smile. Bonding looks natural and also restores the chewing function of the tooth while protecting the health of surrounding teeth.
Steps Involved in a Bonding Procedure
Bonding treatment at Asante Dental Centre is a common procedure and may sometimes be done without any freezing. Our dentists may need to numb the area if the chip is too close to the tooth nerve. We will roughen the tooth’s surface and carefully mold the putty to the desired size, colour, and shape to give you your beautiful smile again.
