What is cosmetic bonding and does it work for a small chip on a front tooth?
Breaking a tooth can be a startling and painful experience… and it often happens in a way that leaves us wondering what we might have done to cause it. Teeth break for a variety of reasons and an underlying problem may have been present for many years. You can be relatively certain that the real cause was probably not the mashed potatoes you were eating when it happened!
A minor chip can often be smoothed out or repaired with white bonding material, often without anesthetic. Cosmetic bonding material is made of a durable, tooth-coloured resin. The resin is available in several varieties of shade and colour to blend with your natural teeth. Cosmetic bonding can renew the look of your smile in a similar way to porcelain veneers, but the bonding treatment only requires one dental visit.
