Dental Bonding as a Restoration Option for a Damaged Tooth

If you've got a damaged tooth and you're considering what restoration option to pick for it, you might want to consider trying dental bonding as the procedure for your situation. Unlike other procedures that hide or mask the damaged tooth, bonding works to try and actively fix the damage to the tooth so that you can go back to living life the way you want to with your natural teeth. We know that there are plenty of different choices out there for restorative dentistry, and that's why we want to give you the information you need to make the right decision about bonding.

Why dental bonding is a good restoration option

Suppose you're unfamiliar with the procedure. You need to know that bonding is unlike most of the other types of restoration that you've probably seen before. Whereas crowns and bridges attach things to your teeth to make them look great again and veneers hide the damage, bonding doesn't do any of those. Bonding involves using a special resin to reshape and reform the damaged tooth back to before the damage. There are many benefits to using this method over the others.

We'll discuss some of the benefits now to help you pick the right restoration option for you.

No extra equipment

Let us begin by talking about the actual procedure. Dental bonding is the process of using specialized composite resin to reshape the tooth. This means there's no need for any extra items or dental devices to make your tooth whole again. Most other solutions involve either a device to cover up the damage or a piece of equipment to make the damage look better without fixing it.

It matches your existing teeth

Second is the fact that other solutions don't match the look and feel of your natural teeth. Most of the time, when a crown is installed, you're left with something too big or the wrong color that looks wholly unnatural. While bonding cannot fix certain tooth-related issues, bonding is the only restorative solution when it comes to restoring a damaged tooth. Bonding can not only improve your tooth but make so that it looks like all the rest of your teeth without being misshapen or discolored.

The specialized composite resin bonds to the tooth itself, allowing the dentist to reshape the tooth into its proper form without worrying about damaging it or making it look different from the other teeth. The resin is even colored to match the patient's natural tooth color to help with making it look new.

It protects your tooth

The bonding agent also acts as an extra layer of protection preventing cavities in the parts of the damaged tooth and preventing further damage from day-to-day wear and tear. This makes it possible to go back to doing all the things you used to love doing, all while using your natural teeth.

Those are just some of the facts about bonding as a restorative option for a damaged tooth.
