Dental Bonding in Ft. Lauderdale
Biting our nails. Opening a package with our teeth when we should have used scissors. Bumping into someone or something. These are all common ways our front teeth can get chipped or broken.
Whether the damage is a small chip in your tooth enamel or a more significant piece that is broken, dental bonding might be the solution for you! Call Drs. Dixon and Dixon in Ft. Lauderdale to schedule a complimentary consultation.
When is Dental Bonding Recommended?
Dental bonding can be an excellent solution for many situations, such as:
- To repair small chips on the edges of our front teeth
- For fixing uneven gaps or small spaces between teeth
- When restoring cracked or broken teeth
- To enhance the shape or appearance of irregular teeth
- To immediately fix larger, broken teeth until a more permanent restoration can be completed
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Immediate Change: Dental bonding is completed in one office visit. Walk in with a chipped tooth and leave with your tooth looking like it was never damaged.
Minimally Invasive: With dental bonding, minimal tooth structure is removed to restore your tooth. Unlike crowns or porcelain veneers, your healthy tooth structure remains unharmed.
Cost Effective: Dental bonding can be a great alternative to porcelain veneers or crowns. Sometimes, when an immediate result is needed, or the investment cannot be made for porcelain veneers or a crown, dental bonding can be a great solution.
How Long Does Dental Bonding Last?
As with any procedure, maintenance can be required. No restorative material is as strong as our natural tooth. If care is not taken, the bonding can stain, chip or break. How long the bonding will last depends on size, location, or the wear and tear the bonding must endure.
Many times, children break a front tooth or multiple teeth in a sporting accident or daily play. Dental bonding is a great solution to get them through their growing years until a more permanent restoration can be completed when they become an adult.
