Tooth-colored composite fillings have been used for years in treating cavities. These durable, affordable dental fillings not only protect your teeth from further decay, but they are also soft on the eyes due to blending in with the color of your natural teeth to retain your smile’s esthetic appeal. In addition to treating cavities, composite fillings can be used to fix tooth imperfections like chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth. This process is called dental bonding. To learn more about dental bonding, contact Dr. Don Mungcal from Downtown Dental, Los Angeles, California, at your earliest convenience.
The same composite material used for cavity treatment can be used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, mend broken teeth, and fill gaps between your teeth. Unsightly gaps between your front teeth can make your smile appear less appealing. Gaps also make brushing more difficult, as food particles can get trapped between your teeth. This puts you at greater risk of getting cavities or gum disease. By closing these gaps with a composite dental filling, Dr. Don Mungcal can protect your oral health and improve your smile’s esthetic appeal. Bonding is a practical and effective means of boosting the health and beauty of your smile.
Before scheduling bonding treatment, Dr. Mungcal will evaluate your teeth and gums to verify you have good oral health. Problems with decay, gum disease, or tooth infections will need to be treated before your bonding procedure. Next, we’ll discuss the cosmetic issues you want to fix with bonding. If the teeth to be bonded contain chips, stains, cracks, or other imperfections, Dr. Mungcal can correct these issues simultaneously as he closes the gap between your teeth to maximize your treatment.
The bonding process involves a series of steps as follows:
The cost of teeth gap bonding will vary depending on the work that needs to be done to get the results you desire. On average, however, dental bonding is an affordable treatment that can be completed in one dental visit. You’ll love your new smile and how it boosts your overall appearance!
