Dental bonding is a great solution for a damaged tooth if the area is small or for a temporary solution. The cost of dental bonding is much less than other, more permanent options such as crowns, and as a result bonding is often a cost effective temporary fix. An additional benefit of dental bonding is that it can be used to repair a damaged tooth or cavity with a white filling that blends in perfectly with your natural tooth color.
After removing the damaged area of the tooth, Dr. Meyers repairs the cavity with a modern filling made of a white composite material that bonds to your tooth for greater strength with a natural shape and feel. For more significant situations of damage or decay, the strength of the bonding process is not as durable as crowns, dental implants or veneers. For these situations, dental bonding can be a viable temporary fix, but not recommended as a long term solution. However, for a single tooth with a small issue, dental bonding can provide a wonderful, healthy, and natural-looking tooth, and can often be completed in a single visit to the office. It is also a fantastic option to correct other small cosmetic issues.
If you are wondering if dental bonding would be a good alternative solution for you, Dr. Meyers is always available to discuss treatment options. Together you can find the best solution for all of your dental needs. She understands the importance of complete dental health, but also recognizes the importance of having a smile you can be proud of.
