Dental Bonding in Lewiston Maine
Dental bonding can help repair teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay, trauma, or other dental issues. We provide dental bonding to our patients here in Lewiston and the surrounding area. If you have issues with some of your teeth, we want to help you smile confidently with our dental services.
How Does Dental Bonding Work?
Dental bonding works by applying a resin material to the treated tooth or teeth. The resin material is similar to the material dentists use to fill a tooth after a cavity treatment. The resin is designed to mimic the color of the surrounding teeth. Dental Bonding is often used to treat the following:
- Repair chipped/cracked teeth
- Fix discolored teeth
- Narrow gaps between teeth
- Protect exposed roots
- Prevent further tooth decay
Is Dental Bonding Right For Me?
Here at Joy Dentistry, our goal is to match patients to the best dental procedures. There is no one-size-fits-all dental solution. Dental bonding is an effective way to handle some minor dental issues, but might not be chosen if the affected area experiences high bite pressure. Resin is not as durable as other dental materials so it is usually only utilized in areas that are not consistently affected by bite pressure.
If dental bonding is right for you, our dentists will start by matching the resin to your teeth color. The resin will be bonded to your teeth to help reshape them. Resin can help hide cracks and chipped teeth as well as change the color of a tooth that is different from the surrounding teeth.
