Do you know what your options are if you require an oral health care restoration treatment to repair any damage to a tooth? If you have sustained dental damage, it will need to be corrected so that further damage cannot occur to your mouth. If a tooth is chipped or cracked or has any impairments that you would like to cover up, one highly reliable treatment to consider is a dental bond.
Dental bonding treatments are cosmetic dentistry procedures that apply durable and tooth-colored materials directly to the surface of a tooth. If for any reason you have to repair a tooth or even fill in a cavity, resin bonds are highly effective options as they are tooth colored in appearance and can provide wonderful aesthetic alternatives to other choices. They can even be bonded as porcelain materials which are stain-resistant. Dental bonds often last over 10 years before repairs may be needed. They can even be reshaped and crafted to cover up spacing issues or elongations with teeth and can be adjusted as needed.
Dental bonds are even effective in situations where you need additional root protection. Root protection is often needed if you are suffering from a condition known as gum recession. When gum recession occurs, it means that your gums are slowly starting to pull back away from a tooth and thereby expose more surface area of the tooth, which is going to lead to exposed roots. If the roots continue to be exposed, they can be damaged and eventually cause tooth loss. However, with a dental bonding treatment, you can cover up the portion of a tooth’s root that is exposed and protect the tooth.
