A broken tooth is considered nothing less than a type of trauma as it stops you from smiling and shatters confidence. Some of the common causes of the tooth breaking are eating hard food like candy or an ice cube, falling accidents, tooth injury or cavity.
However, the good news is that modern dentistry has the solutions to most dental problems due to the use of advanced technology. There are dental services, providing emergency dental treatments to the patients everywhere in the world. All a patient needs is to consult a dentist in the first place if they have a broken or fractured tooth. The dentist will professionally guide them about what option will be best to treat the condition.
Most bonding cases can be completed in one appointment at Anacapa Dental Art Institute, Oxnard near Camarillo.
Here are 3 issues that you may not have realized dental bonding can repair.
Small Chips or Fractures
We use composite resin for dental bonding, which is the same material used for dental fillings. This means that it can be custom shaded to match your teeth and complement your smile. Because it bonds directly with your tooth, it’s ideal for repairing small chips or fractures in your teeth.
When you suffer from gum recession, it often leaves your roots exposed, which can be quite painful. Unfortunately, your gum tissue will never grow back, so bonding is actually a great way to fill in the open spaces and protect that exposed root from further damage, which will also alleviate your sensitivity.
Gaps and Size Discrepancies
You may not have realized that dental bonding can actually change the shape and appearance of your tooth. For patients with small gaps or spacing between their teeth, bonding can often close those gaps. It can also be used to lengthen or build up a tooth that is smaller than the others.
Dental Bonding in Oxnard & Ventura County
Dental bonding is a procedure in which Dr. Jivraj affixes a tooth-colored resin material to the flawed tooth in order to cosmetically repair it. After it is applied, shaped and smoothed to repair the imperfection, it then is hardened with a special light that activates the resin so it bonds with the tooth. The result is a repaired tooth that looks beautiful and performs like the real thing.
Dental bonding can be a more affordable solution than veneers, though porcelain veneers can provide longer lasting results. The advantages of dental bonding are simply that it’s inexpensive, removes the least amount of tooth enamel and doesn’t require the assistance of anesthesia, unless being used to fill cavities. As veneers and crowns are manufactured in a laboratory, dental bonding has the added advantage of being done fully in-house, which makes it the faster choice, most of the time taking only one visit to Dr. Jivraj.
