You may not feel any physical discomfort, but with chipped, misshapen or discolored teeth, your social interactions can become awkward. As your smile is the first thing most people notice about you, those flaws can make you feel self-conscious. The good news is, depending on the type of damage to the tooth, you may not need to go as far as getting a crown to restore an unattractive, severely worn tooth. Restorative dentistry has a solution! Through dental bonding, Dr. Jason White and the team here at Dental Care of Franklin can make those chipped, misshapen or discolored teeth look like new. This is just one of the restorative dentistry treatments we offer here in our Franklin, TN office.
Dental bonding is a process in which Dr. White places composite resin, a tooth-colored material similar to that used for dental fillings, onto the surface of your tooth. Dr. White takes great care to choose a shade of resin that will best match the color of the surrounding teeth, ensuring that your bonded teeth will fit seamlessly with the rest of your teeth and enhancing your smile rather than dominating it. For chipped or cracked teeth, dental bonding can be used to reshape or rebuild the chipped area or cover cracks. Dental bonding can transform your look—and your outlook—even after just a single visit to our Franklin, TN office.
Dental bonding has a variety of restorative dentistry applications. Dr. White can do dental bonding as a transitional or temporary treatment before offering more complex long-term solutions. In other words, as a sort of stopgap measure. Dental bonding is also an economical option for beautifying teeth on a tight budget. In certain instances, Dr. White may want to use dental bonding as a test to see if more complex and costly procedures are feasible before undertaking them. If you want to know which of these options might be best for you, request a consultation with Dr. White. He’ll take the time to listen to your needs and recommend the best course of action for your specific situation. Meet him and you’ll be surprised just how attentive and caring a dentist can be.
