Addressing Enamel Damage Through Tooth Bonding Treatment

Our teeth are able to maintain their appearance and health thanks to the durability of our enamel. This remarkably strong substance enables us to bite and chew through tough foods for many years with relative ease. Unfortunately, you are not completely protected against damage, as physical injuries as well as gradual wear and tear can start to take a toll on your appearance. Whether you have visibly worn teeth that look misshapen and unhealthy, or you wish to do something about a conspicuous chip or crack in your enamel, your Rochester, MN dentist can help! Through tooth bonding treatment, we can address a problem with your smile in as little as one appointment, giving you renewed confidence in your appearance.

Visible Dental Damage Can Hurt Your Appearance

Whether the problem is linked to an issue with a visible injury or with general wear and tear, enamel damage can interfere with the quality of your smile and make you self-conscious. What can you do to address this matter and regain comfort with your appearance? You may be surprised to learn that this is a problem your dentist can address without capping your tooth with a permanent restoration. In many cases, we can apply composite resin to carefully change a tooth’s shape, size, and color. This work can lead to positive smile changes in as little as one appointment, which means you can see the results you want in a surprisingly short time!

Arranging A Tooth Bonding Procedure

A tooth bonding procedure relies on the application of a composite resin substance that is permanently affixed to your enamel. When performing treatment, we will carefully apply this substance in order to hide a chip or crack in a tooth, or to correct issues with tooth shape and size caused by wear and tear. In addition to changing your smile by addressing visible damage, this procedure can cover minor alignment issues, and it can help correct concerns that you might have about the color of your enamel.

Other Treatments Capable Of Restoring Your Smile

An evaluation before treating your tooth can tell us more about the condition of your smile, which can help us recommend the right procedure. While treatment with porcelain veneers can call for more preparatory work and a follow-up visit, veneers do provide more durability that allows you to preserve your appearance. If we see a need to protect your smile by capping your tooth with a crown, we can use CEREC technology to provide one for your tooth in as little as one visit!
