Can Dental Bonding Improve Your Smile?

Posted .

The dental team of Dr. Jade Cherrington, DDS at Rimrock Dental Redmond, Oregon is happy to offer dental bonding for our patients. What is dental bonding? Dental bonding is when a tooth-colored composite resin is applied onto a damaged tooth–whether it is chipped, fractured, discolored or decayed—to repair the tooth.

Dental bonding is easily done and is an economical fix, as far as tooth repair is considered. It requires very little of the original tooth enamel to be removed, keeping more of the natural tooth structure. With proper care, dental bonding can last three to ten years before requiring a touch-up or replacing. Dental bonding can be done in one visit, and once it is done, your tooth will look as good as new.

Dental bonding can be used to:

  • Make a tooth appear longer
  • Fix a decayed tooth
  • Change the shape of a tooth
  • Fix chips or cracks in a toot
  • Close spaces in between teeth
  • Fix the color on a discolored tooth
  • Protect a part of a tooth’s exposed root from gum recession

If you need minor tooth restoration that can be helped with dental bonding, Dr. Jade Cherrington, DDS and his dental team at Rimrock Dental in Redmond, Oregon are more than happy to help. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please give us a call at 541-699-4200 today!
