Have you ever chipped or broken a tooth, and thought because no pain was experienced, going to the dentist was not necessary? However, addressing this issue as soon as possible will help reduce the chances of additional complications. Also, fixing a broken or chipped tooth may benefit your general oral health, too. Sometimes a damaged tooth can be improved with a technique called bonding. Composite bonding is when an area of a tooth is filled in with a tooth-colored material and is shaped to restore the tooth properly. Then we use a special light to harden the bonding material. The results are teeth that are smooth and even. Composite bonding has the potential to last a long time and is very durable, making your smile more attractive.
