Does your smile suffer from dental flaws like chipped, stained, or irregularly shaped teeth? Ask Drs. David and Augustine Borgmeyer about dental bonding in St Louis, Missouri. Dental bonding is the process by which tooth-colored material is applied and hardened to the front surface of your teeth. Dental bonding can be used to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Restore teeth that are chipped or cracked
- Improve the color of stained teeth
- Close spaces and gaps in your smile
- Lengthen teeth
- Improve the shape of teeth
- Protect tooth roots that have been exposed by receding gums
Dental bonding has several advantages. Bonding is an easy and inexpensive cosmetic dental service. Dental bonding can usually be done in just one office visit, unlike veneers and crowns, which require at least two appointments. Less tooth enamel needs to be removed to prepare a tooth for dental bonding than with veneers or crowns as well. Dental bonding can be used to fill cavities in addition to enhancing the appearance of your smile. Bonding materials generally last from three to ten years before they need to be repaired or replaced.
