5 common problems and the dental bonding solution

August 12, 2020

If you find that you're unsatisfied with the appearance of your teeth but have avoided getting them fixed because the thought of pain and big costly repairs have kept you away, you are not alone. At Peak Dental in Austin, TX, we offer dental bonding that is a quick, and affordable option using a tooth-colored composite resin to fix many unsightly dental conditions. In this article, we will discuss five common problems that dental bonding can prove to be great solutions for.

Common Dental Problems That Can Affect Teeth Whitening

Closing Gaps

Many of us have gaps in our teeth that can be a bit unsightly. Dental bonding applied to one or more teeth can be used to close small spaces between teeth, even your front teeth. The particular composite resin used in this process can be customized to match the color and texture of your teeth.

Changing Tooth Shape

Even if you have teeth that naturally appear smaller than your other teeth, dental bonding can build up the shape and size of your tooth to cause uniformity throughout your entire smile.

Protecting Roots

If you tend to brush too vigorously, permanent damage can be caused to your gums, and they can begin to recede. If this happens, your root can become too exposed and can prove to be painful. Dental bonding can typically be used to fill the space and protect your root from further exposure.

Repairing Small Chips and Fractures

Small chips and fractures are no match to dental bonding as they can be used to repair these issues and restore your tooth’s natural looking shape.

Restoring Decayed Teeth

Finally, a tooth that has been decayed and damaged by an accident, or your lifestyle habits, can be fixed with dental bonding. As the composite resin is directly bonded to your tooth, it provides strength and durability.
