Unfortunately, teeth sometimes break. And if you have a broken tooth, it can affect both your appearance and how you feel about yourself.. There are ways to repair broken teeth and make them better than new! Perhaps the most popular method is the use of porcelain veneers or alternatively cosmetic bonding.
Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth without reducing the structure of the tooth in most cases. Then the material is sculpted to create a natural-looking tooth. Bonding corrects chipped and broken teeth, discolored teeth and in some cases can correct gaps. It is less expensive than veneers but doesn’t last as long and can stain. A benefit of bonding is that generally, the natural structure of the tooth can be maintained.
Tooth stains and discolorations that resist professional tooth whitening procedures may also be masked with bonding. Although bonding may not be as long lasting as porcelain veneers or crowns, it can last for a number of years with proper care.
