Dental Bonding Treatment And Enamel Damage

Whether it occurs because of a physical injury or gradual wear and tear, dental damage can be tough to ignore. This can be true even if it is hard to see, as it can make biting and chewing more difficult, but it can be especially hard to have a problem with visible chips or cracks in your enamel. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we can provide a conservative solution that will offer lasting benefits for your smile. A tooth bonding procedure can cover up chips and cracks, and even reshape a worn tooth, in as little as one appointment. Because this approach does not call for the placement of a permanent restoration, it can also minimize the amount of work we have to do to change your tooth’s appearance.

Are You Embarrassed By Visible Dental Damage?

Even minor damage to your tooth structure can cause embarrassment, as it can stand out in ways that are difficult for you to ignore. Rather than feel stuck with this problem, you can explore different solutions that can address it. What may surprise you is that the right improvements can only require minimal changes to your enamel. Instead of affixing a permanent restoration to your tooth, we can proceed with a cosmetic bonding and contouring treatment that carefully modifies the shape, size, and color of a tooth to make sure it fits in with your smile.

Planning Your Conservative Tooth Bonding Treatment

Tooth bonding and contouring work can resolve many different issues with the way certain teeth look in as little as one appointment. During your visit, we can provide contouring work to even out a tooth, and we can apply a composite resin substance to cover up the damage that has made you self-conscious. Because this work does not require us to craft and place a restoration, we can have it done in less time. We can also provide results while minimizing the actual changes to your tooth structure.

What Else Can You Do To Restore An Injured Tooth?

If it is necessary to provide more than just cosmetic support, we can protect a tooth with a durable dental crown. A crown is made to cover a tooth so that it can protect the structure, absorb bite pressure, and address cosmetic issues. It can provide this latter form of support because the restoration can be made with a lifelike substance that effectively matches the color and texture of your healthy enamel.
