Is Dental Bonding Best for a Broken Tooth?

Nobody wants to crack, chip, or break a tooth. But if it happens to you, find out how to deal with the damage.

Say Bye-Bye to a Broken Tooth

If you’re unsure of the best way to repair a tooth that’s chipped or cracked, you should consider dental bonding. For this dental procedure, dentists apply and carefully shape a tooth-colored plastic adhesive over the dental damage to seal the chipped or broken tooth. Then, a special ultraviolet light is used to harden the adhesive so it’s strong and secure. Family dentistry experts frequently recommend bonding for chipped tooth repair because it offers so many benefits, including:

  • Perfectly matches the color of nearby teeth
  • No anesthesia required
  • Little to no pain
  • Complete chipped tooth repair in less than one hour per tooth
  • Available from any affordable dentist
  • Can last for up to ten years

Keep Bonding Looking Good and Lasting Long

Family dentistry experts advise following a few simple steps to keep bonding at its best for many years to come. After having the bonding treatment, it’s important that you:

  • Don’t consume dark-colored foods and beverages for a full 48 hours after the procedure to avoid staining the bonding as it sets.
  • Avoid biting down on very hard foods, ice cubes, and solid objects to prevent the bonding from chipping.
  • Get regular check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist.
