When you crack or chip a tooth, it can feel like the end of the world. Damage to your smile often has a lasting effect on self-esteem and personal confidence because it is considered one of the most defining features of a person. Society places so much value on the smile that studies have shown a crowd more quickly notices when someone is missing a tooth than when they are missing eyebrows.
But damaging a tooth does not need to be the end of the world. An office like Rock River Dental can repair any interior and exterior damage through restorative care and the process of dental bonding. Our bonding is completed at a convenient location near you in Fort Atkinson, WI and takes as little as one appointment.
In less than an hour, you could have a brand new smile to show the world.
Dental bonding is a simple process where our specialist applies a tooth-colored composite resin to a tooth. This resin is in the form of putty and is carefully shaped and sculpted to hide any damage and form a complete tooth.
Once you are satisfied with the resin’s appearance, it is hardened and becomes a permanent fixture in the mouth.
A natural-looking smile that functions like normal!
The primary benefit of dental bonding is being able to repair chips and cracks without requiring invasive treatment. The composite resin is a strong material that can withstand regular activities like biting and chewing and will not fall out or be damaged by regular brushing and flossing.
Another benefit is being able to repair a smile without taking an excessive amount of time or money. Many of our patients opt for bonding over other options like veneers because the procedure is quick, durable, and often affordable even without insurance.
If you are interested in dental bonding all you need to do is schedule a consultation with either Dr. Showalter or Dr. Trimbell at Rock River Dental. We can assess your situation and begin treatment immediately to help you regain your smile.
