Tooth Bonding An Overview
Tooth bonding can serve both cosmetic and restorative purposes, addressing minor aesthetic concerns and tooth damage. Similar to a dental filling procedure, tooth bonding is typically an easy process completed during one visit with Dr. Hughes at Boulder Valley Dental Center in Louisville, CO.
Dr. Hughes recommends tooth bonding for many reasons:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Discolored teeth
Although tooth bonding can last for 10 years or more with proper dental care, it is not considered a permanent restoration. For this reason, tooth bonding is often the perfect solution for younger patients or adult patients who are not yet ready for placing dental veneers, a more permanent treatment option.
