It can be hard to go through life with teeth that cause you anxiety. Healthy teeth, along with laughing and smiling without restraint is within your reach. Many common cosmetic tooth problems—and even some that aren’t simply cosmetic—can be repaired using dental bonding. If one of the following four problems is keeping you from smiling, then you are almost certainly a good candidate for dental bonding:
Dental bonding actually refers to a special kind of plastic that can “bond” to the surface of your teeth. This material can be used as a filler to hold together pieces of a cracked tooth or to recreate and then bond the missing pieces to what remains of the original tooth. Because dental bonding material comes in numerous shades, your dentist should be able to achieve a seamless effect, making it appear as though there was never a problem in the first place.
The same concept applies to filling in gaps as it does to filling in cracks. Your dentist will use some of the bonding material to increase the size of your teeth so that the spaces between them aren’t so large or so obvious.
If your teeth are discolored, then your doctor can use bonding material to hide the stains—you’ll just have to work with your dentist to choose which color of bonding material you want.
4. Low Bite Pressure
Low bite pressure can be the result of teeth that are either too short or too crooked. As we’ve seen, dental boding can take care of gaps and recreate missing parts of your teeth, so “evening out” your teeth or elongating them is a simple enough procedure.
