Tooth Bonding An Overview
Dental bonding is a quick and simple way to address many cosmetic dental concerns. At Foothills Dentistry in Calgary, AB, we offer dental bonding to address common dental issues such as:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Mishappen teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Minor misalignment
- Discolored or stained teeth
The dental bonding material is typically made of composite resin, which can be color matched and shaped to match your existing teeth. Our team of dentists will choose the appropriate shade of resin, so when your treatment is complete, no one will be able to tell the difference between your bonded tooth and your existing smile.
In many cases, dentists fix black triangles with porcelain veneers, which may require the dentist to remove some of the natural tooth structure to prepare the affected tooth for the bonding processes. Thanks to revolutionary treatments like BioClear®, dentists can now preserve much more of the natural tooth structure when addressing black triangles on the teeth.
BioClear is considered an alternative to porcelain veneers and can be used that can eliminate black triangles, worn teeth, chipped teeth, and damaged teeth. In some cases, BioClear can reshape misshapen teeth, help improve the appearance of crooked teeth and close gapped teeth. This conservative cosmetic dental treatment adds structure to the teeth rather than removing it, creating a more practical way to address common dental concerns.
Candidacy For Dental Bonding
If you would like to learn more about dental bonding, the first step is to schedule a consultation with our team at Foothills Dentistry. During your consultation, we will examine your teeth and determine if dental bonding or another cosmetic treatment best suits your needs. Dental bonding is often recommended for minor cosmetic dental issues.
For areas with extensive damage, decay, or discoloration, we may recommend a dental filling, porcelain veneers or teeth whitening. For damage that compromises the integrity of the tooth structure, we may recommend placing a dental crown to restore the health and function to the tooth. In many cases, dental bonding is a safe and effective solution for patients of all ages.
