Dental bonding is a popular method often used by a dentist to alter the look, feel, and shape of teeth that are cracked, decayed, worn down, gapped, or crooked. Also known as composite resin, this adhesive material can fill a cavity post its removal and cover-up discolored or severely stained enamel. One unfortunate fact about enamel is once it goes missing, it doesn't grow back. That's why Dr. Michael Klein encourages Encinitas, CA, patients, to refrain from nail-biting, chewing on foreign objects, and wearing a mouth guard during most physical activity. If your smile looks like it could use a boost, dental bonding offers many benefits, schedule a consultation to start your journey to a more attractive smile, today.
Dental Bonding and You
Tooth enamel has a reputation for being the hardest bone in the body, but it's not indestructible. It can break for various reasons, some by the fault of our own, and some by accident. Our dentist recommends dental bonding as a long-lasting option for minor cosmetic dentistry problems to renew your smile to its natural appearance and restore bite function. The dental bonding procedure takes up to 60 minutes to complete in our Encinitas, CA office and prevents further damage to the affected tooth. The procedure also doesn't require an anesthetic unless permitted by Dr. Klein, and healing time is almost immediate. To learn how you can benefit from treatment, give us a call.
If you struggle with a smile full of chipped, gapped, cracked, misshapen, or decayed teeth, our dentist may recommend dental bonding to recharge your appearance, mood, and general health. The procedure only takes one visit to complete, and Dr. Michael Klein will discuss steps in detail during your initial visit to our Encinitas, CA office.
