Getting Dental Bonding
The process for getting dental bonding to repair a chipped tooth is routine and should be painless. You should first discuss with your dentist the shape and look you want for your repaired tooth. Dental bonding is a strong option to repair the structure of your tooth, but can also correct various cosmetic problems.
To repair a chipped tooth, the tooth is prepared with a resin solution that etches the tooth and prepares it for bonding. Dental bonding is applied to replace the chip and reshape the tooth. The resin is cured with a special light, making it hard and strong. The bonding is then trimmed and polished to blend in with your smile. The entire process can be completed in one appointment and should be painless.
Caring for dental bonding is just like caring for your natural teeth. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Bonding can be susceptible to staining so be careful consuming red wine and coffee. Don't bite your nails or chew on hard items like pens and pencils, this can contribute to more chips.
