Our teeth suffer from a lot of wear and tear over the years. They may become stained or discolored over time, or perhaps they've sustained wear or chipping. These things can diminish the appearance of your smile and cause you to feel self-conscious about it.
The good news is that Dr. Terveen, your Colorado Springs dentist, offers dental bonding as a fast, effective, and affordable solution to minor cosmetic issues. Here are some of the ways dental bonding can improve your smile.
Eliminate Chips and Fractures
It's pretty common for our teeth to sustain small chips and fractures. After all, they are susceptible to powerful biting forces multiple times each day. If you tend to clench or grind your teeth at night, your teeth may also have wear, which can also change their shape and appearance.
Dental bonding utilizes composite resin bonded to your teeth to eliminate chips, fractures, and wear. Composite can also be shaded so that it blends seamlessly with your teeth and complements your smile.
Filling in the Gaps
Do you live with gaps or spacing between your teeth? Composite resin can be bonded directly to your tooth to change its size and shape to eliminate gaps or spaces between teeth.
Stains and Discoloration
The foods we eat and beverages we drink take their toll on our teeth over time. Thanks to coffee, tea, and red wine, your teeth may appear dull or discolored. Dental bonding allows composite to cover your teeth so staining and discoloration are no longer visible, giving you back your beautiful smile.
