Can Bonding Treatment Hide Dental Damage?

After you chip or crack your tooth, you can worry over the effect that damage will have on your smile as well as your oral health. It is not always necessary to address physical damage with a dental crown. However, you should not ignore the problem – even if a chip or crack is difficult to see, it can lead to more trouble with your oral health over time. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can help you deal with this problem by performing a conservative tooth bonding procedure. This is a service that relies on carefully-applied composite resin to change a tooth’s shape, size, and color. Because there is no need to cap your tooth with a custom restoration, we can limit changes to your enamel and deliver results in as little as one visit!

Even A Small Chip Or Crack In Your Tooth Should Concern You

You should look into treatment after chipping or cracking a tooth, even if you feel that the damage will be difficult for others to see. One reason is that you can find that the right procedure takes less time and effort than you believed, making this a problem that is easier to fix than you anticipate. Another reason is that you may be wrong about just how “minor” the damage is. Over time, biting and chewing can wear down the enamel and do more harm, leading to bigger concerns over your appearance and oral health!

How A Tooth Bonding Treatment Addresses Dental Damage

Tooth bonding treatment does not call for the use of permanent restorations. There are two benefits to this:  One benefit is that you can have the results you want with less preparatory work, which means you preserve more of your tooth structure. Another advantage is that this makes it possible for us to complete a procedure in as little as one appointment! The process relies on a composite resin substance that adheres directly to your enamel. Your dentist applies this substance carefully to cover blemishes like chips, cracks, or discoloration. This also works to change the size of a small tooth.

Other Cosmetic Services That We Can Offer

If necessary, we can cap your injured tooth with a custom dental crown. When we do this, we can prevent complications that may arise over time, as the crown will provide meaningful bite support. With CEREC technology, we can actually have your crown ready for you in just one appointment, which means we can still deal with your tooth trouble in a short time!
