How Tooth Bonding Can Fix and Conceal Chipped Teeth

Chipped teeth are embarrassing when you smile, but they can also be uncomfortable if jagged edges are poking and irritating your gums and soft tissues. The good news is that a simple procedure called dental bonding can easily fix chipped teeth and have you chewing and smiling normally again in no time.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

Our dentists use composite resin material during a dental bonding procedure to reshape and restore your tooth. The composite material is the same as what they use for a dental filling, so it is pliable until it's cured with a special light that hardens it. Composite is also customizable so that they can match it to your tooth for a seamless smile.

 Dental bonding in Vancouver can fix these types of problems:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Misshapen or oddly shaped teeth
  • Stained or discoloured teeth
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth

Dental bonding is a quick and straightforward procedure that our dentists can typically complete during one visit. It also tends to be a less expensive cosmetic dental procedure.

Are You Thinking of Enhancing Your Smile?

If you're living with some of the cosmetic concerns listed above and want to make more significant changes to your smile, porcelain veneers might be an excellent option.

Porcelain veneers fix many of the same concerns as dental bonding; however, veneers can completely change your teeth' size, shape, and shade for a truly aesthetic, brand-new smile. In fact, many of today's actors and celebrities have enhanced their smiles with porcelain veneers.
