If you are considering dental bonding for tooth restorations, there are a few things to consider. With bonding material there are some limitations in its ability to restore teeth. If teeth have cracks or fractures, heavy chewing forces on the tooth or large cavities and fillings it may be difficult to use dental bonding for these restorative purposes. In these cases a porcelain filling may be a better option. Generally tooth-colored fillings are an excellent choice for filling a small cavity, replacing a mercury filling or repairing a damaged tooth.
We are happy to discuss the pros and cons of dental bonding for tooth restorations. Schedule a consultation with us and we will work with you to provide you the best solution for your teeth.
Cosmetic Bonding is a specific type of bonding procedure we use to prep your teeth for veneers. Before attaching veneers, we will use bonding to repair any spots, fractures, chips or cracks, alter the appearance of crooked teeth and to whiten teeth in order to prep your teeth for the best veneer placement possible.
At Cosmetic Dentistry of Atlanta we take care and attention with each smile and put forth procedures to make sure the results are a healthy, natural looking smile. Dr. Gaylor’s expertise in bonding ensures you the best cosmetic results for your smile.
Am I candidate for dental bonding?
Dental Bonding procedures are used for restorations and cosmetic bonding. This includes fillings, repairs of chips and cracks and no-prep veneers. If you have more serious damages to your teeth we are happy to consult with you to provide different options for repairs.
What are some drawbacks to bonding?
Bonding materials are made of plastic and while materials are advancing there are still many drawbacks to plastic as a restorative material. Because plastics are porous, they absorb stain so bonding may require more teeth maintenance such as polishing, stain removal or chip repair. If these are concerns, Cosmetic Dentistry of Atlanta can recommend porcelain veneers as an alternative method of improving your smile.
What are my other options to bonding?
If you need to repair deeper damages on your teeth such as large fillings, cavities, fractures or cracks a porcelain filling may be a better option. In this case we would use a tooth-colored filling to restore your teeth. Many people have concerns about sensitivity with these types of fillings but at Cosmetic Dentistry of Atlanta we have the best expertise to deliver you precise and detailed results. We are constantly educating ourselves on the best new technologies and latest practices to provide you with the healthiest and most precise results for your smile.
