At All American Dental in Columbia, MO, we know accidents happen. Teeth get chipped, you accidentally crack one, or you consume so much coffee that your teeth become yellow. If you have a minor issue that doesn’t require intense repair, we offer dental bonding for a quick and easy fix that can last for years.
Dental bonding is a restorative process that focuses on repairing the appearance and function of the teeth. Our dentist possesses many years of experience utilizing this treatment to fix a patient’s smile following injury, disease, or decay.
During this process, out dentist uses a composite resin putty. A small amount is placed on the tooth that requires repairs and then molded to fill in gaps, repair a chip, or hide and restructure a crack that affects a tooth’s function and appearance. Once satisfied with the initial repair, our dentist hardens the putty and then forms the final shape.
We recommend using dental bonding to restore minor problems. The procedure is noninvasive and can be completed in a single appointment, making it ideal for someone who wants to repair their teeth quickly, easily, and at an affordable rate.
Once applied, the composite resin is meant to last years. No one will be able to tell you had work done on your teeth, and your healthy smile is instantly restored. Our dentist can also perform touch-ups in case you accidentally damage the bonding material, so it is easy to get repairs and replacements when needed.
At All American Dental in Columbia, MO, we typically use dental bonding for the following problems:
Once you have received bonding, we strongly recommend you avoid potentially damaging behaviors like chewing on ice cubes, biting your nails, or consuming discoloring beverages like tea, coffee, wine, and soda.
