Dental Bonding for a Broken Tooth

If you’re unsure of the best way to repair a tooth that’s chipped or cracked, you should consider dental bonding. For this dental procedure, dentists apply and carefully shape a tooth-colored plastic adhesive over the dental damage to seal the chipped or broken tooth. Then, a special ultraviolet light is used to harden the adhesive so it’s strong and secure. Family dentistry experts frequently recommend bonding for chipped tooth repair because it offers so many benefits, including:

  • Perfectly matches the color of nearby teeth
  • No anesthesia required
  • Little to no pain
  • Complete chipped tooth repair in less than one hour per tooth
  • Available from any affordable dentist
  • Can last for up to ten years

How to Keep Bonding at Its Best

If you opt for dental bonding for chipped tooth repair, family dentistry experts say you can keep it good-looking and long-lasting if you follow these simple steps:

  • Avoid dark-colored foods and drinks for 48 hours after the procedure because the bonding material is susceptible to stains during this time.
  • Avoid biting down on very hard foods, ice cubes, and solid objects to prevent the bonding from chipping.
  • See an affordable dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
