Why Dental Bonding May Be Best for Chipped Tooth Repair

Daily activities or an accident can cause you to chip, crack, or break your tooth. If you’re unsure of how to treat the trouble, find all of the answers below.

One of the Best Ways to Treat a Broken Tooth

According to family dentistry experts, dental bonding is one of the top types of treatment to repair a tooth that’s chipped or cracked. To perform this treatment, your dentist will 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:

  • Can last for up to ten years
  • Less than one hour for chipped tooth repair
  • Matches the shade of other teeth, so it’s practically invisible
  • No need for anesthesia
  • Little to no pain
  • Available from any affordable dentist

3 Ways to Take Care of Teeth after Bonding

If you decide on dental bonding for chipped tooth repair, you can keep it looking good and lasting long by following these tips from family dentistry experts:

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