A damaged or misshapen tooth can make a person feel self-conscious about his/her smile. In fact, a cracked or chipped tooth can increases the risk of tooth decay and eventually, dental infection. How do you repair a damaged tooth? At The Silverstrom Group, we offer an esthetically pleasing and minimally invasive option for restoring smiles. With dental bonding, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, can address a variety of dental imperfections and help protect your smile from decay. In today’s blog, your Livingston cosmetic dentists discuss the advantages of dental bonding.



The Causes and Symptoms of Damaged Teeth

Whether from a sports injury or advanced decay, cracks or chips may appear on the surface of our teeth. In other cases, teeth grinding may lead to our teeth being worn down or misshapen. For some patients, their teeth may be naturally malformed. When dental damage occurs, sometimes the fractures or breaks aren’t visible to the naked eye. The symptoms of a damaged tooth include tooth sensitivity, toothaches, and difficulty biting down or chewing.

Dental Bonding

If you feel you may have a damaged tooth, talk to your Livingston dentists immediately. When cracks and chips occur in the enamel coating our teeth, the sensitive inner tooth structures become exposed to bacteria. Once this happens, patients suffer the onset of tooth decay. Dental bonding allows Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom to apply several thin layers of a special composite resin. As the resin cures, your Livingston dentists will reshape and sculpt the material. The bonding material can even be shaded to ensure your treated tooth blends with your smile. With dental bonding, your teeth can be restored and protected from cavities and infection.
