In situations where you have suffered an oral accident or injury, it could leave your teeth vulnerable to further damage. Any time your teeth are fractured, a hole in your tooth enamel may form that can allow bacteria to seep through and damage the pulp. Eventually, this could lead to tooth death and infections in your mouth. To prevent this, all damage should be repaired with a reliable restoration procedure. One highly effective option to consider is a dental bonding treatment.
Dental bonds are designed to repair chips and cracks in teeth and even cover up discolorations, stains or other visual impairments that may be present on a tooth. They can even be used in situations to correct spacing issues between teeth and to elongate or reshape teeth as necessary. Because dental bonds are made of durable materials such as porcelain and resin, they can be used as cosmetic alternatives to other treatments as they will provide a tooth-colored shine to blend in with the natural color of your teeth. They can last over 10 years before a repair or replacement may be needed. Dental bonds have even been used in situations when severe gum recession has occurred, which is often linked to gum disease or other similar gum tissue infections in which your gums pull back away from a tooth and expose the root. Dental bonds can cover up the area and prevent further damage to the tooth from occurring.
