Chipped, cracked, and broken teeth are common. At Smile Dental Group in Jackson Heights, we treat several patients who had accidents that led to damaged teeth. Patients with damaged teeth can look for dental bonding in Jackson Heights as one of the possible options to restore their teeth.
There’s nothing wrong about wanting a better smile. Dental bonding can take care of many of the issues that can disrupt a beautiful smile. There are plenty of benefits to dental bonding as opposed to other restorative options. At Smile Dental Group, we’ll tell you what we think would work best for you.
Through dental bonding, we can use composite resin to repair teeth. Composite resin can be shaped however we want. It can be used to replace a missing part of a tooth or fill large gaps. It can also be used to repair chipped and cracked teeth. The color of composite resin can be adjusted, so it matches your teeth. People who see you won’t know that you have composite resin on or between your teeth.
Dental bonding can be completed in a single visit and isn’t invasive. It’s also one of the cheapest options available for dental restoration. Composite resin can last an average of 6 years. You can prolong its lifespan by avoiding biting and chewing hard foods and objects.
Dental bonding isn’t the only answer to damaged teeth. We can use veneers and crowns to improve the appearance of teeth. Veneers are purely cosmetic. They do not offer any form of protection. They’re thin shells that are placed on teeth to make them look better. The natural tooth will be hidden behind the veneer.
Dental crowns are both protective and cosmetic. A crown won’t just cover the front of the tooth; it will cover its entire surface. Crowns are hard and durable. They will protect teeth while making them look better. Unfortunately, crowns are expensive, and getting multiple crowns isn’t always feasible. It usually takes two visits to get a crown or veneers but only one for dental bonding.
