Dental bonding can be used to fill cavities or fix a chipped or cracked tooth. Bonding materials are strong and can last for many years with proper care. If your bonding material is chipping, Drs. Ruth Bailey and Kasey Sliger can determine the cause of this issue and develop a custom plan for treatment.View transcript
Dental bonding is a tooth-colored material that restores affected tooth structure. For instance, you would need dental bonding, say, to fill a cavity that you had, or if you have a chip on a front tooth. You can use dental bonding to replace that tooth structure. We've seen bondings last for years and years on patients. If you're experiencing dental bonding that's chipping, it might mean that there's something off with your bite or malocclusion, and that might mean that you could be a good candidate for aligning your teeth with something like Invisalign to help prevent your dental bondings from chipping in the future.
