How bonding from your dentist in Salem, OR, can give you a strong, beautiful smile
It’s easy to damage your smile over time. Every day your teeth are stressed with chewing, biting, grinding, and other habits. If you bite your fingernails or chew ice cubes, you can damage your teeth. If you grind your teeth at night, you will have chipped teeth eventually.
The good news is, there is a dental procedure to repair and re-strengthen your teeth and your smile. It’s called bonding! Dr. Igor Sitnik at Sitnik Dental in Salem, OR, offers dental bonding to give you a strong, beautiful smile.
Dental bonding uses a liquid resin known as composite. It’s unique because it can be matched to the color of your teeth. As a liquid, your dentist sculpts it to shape to match the normal contours of your teeth. After the composite is placed, it’s hardened with an ultraviolet light. The result is a restorative treatment that blends perfectly into your smile.
Dental bonding strengthens a tooth by bonding the tooth together. The versatility of dental bonding can also make a tooth more beautiful and enhance your smile by repairing issues like these:
- Cracks, chips, or fracture lines
- Tooth wear, abrasion, and jagged edges
- Broken or lost tooth structure
You can also change the color of your teeth with dental bonding. If you have a discoloration or blotchy tooth enamel due to genetics or other factors, dental bonding can give you a more even tooth color. In certain cases, bonding can also help close small gaps between your teeth, and cosmetically mask the look of minor tooth overlap.
Dental bonding can help strengthen your smile, and it can also make your smile more attractive too! You deserve to look your best, and your smile is a big part of your appearance.
