Bonding can dramatically improve your smile by closing gaps, as well as repairing cracks or chips resulting from accidents.
These tooth colored composites are well suited for protecting exposed tooth roots caused by gum recession. Tooth roots are covered by dentin that is more susceptible to decay. Bonding helps prevent decay in this area as well as eliminate sensitivity to hot and cold resulting from tooth exposure.
Since composite materials can match the color of your own teeth, bonding is preferred for filling cavities in the front teeth or wherever else they may be visible.
Bonding does not last as long as porcelain veneers, but it also is not as costly. We look forward to hearing from you! To find out more about our dentists, general & family dentistry, or the other dentistry services we provide, please call our walnut creek dental office at 925.939.9177 or email us.
