Chipping an adult tooth is one of the worst dental disappointments that you can experience. This is especially disheartening if the tooth is located near the front of your mouth, making it visible when you smile. A chipped tooth is not only physically uncomfortable if the edges are jagged, but also psychologically painful, especially to school-aged children.

In the past, people would either have to live with the chipped tooth or get a crown. The crown would require two to three office visits and shots of anesthetic, as well as discomfort for a few days afterwards. Luckily, dental bonding has come to the rescue.
Dental Bonding

What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding allows a dentist to use a compound that looks very similar to your natural tooth. This compound comes in a variety of shades and the dentist will choose one that is most similar to the rest of your teeth. He will “paint” this onto your existing tooth, carefully covering the chipped spot. Special light rays are then used to harden the compound.

Once the bonding material has hardened, the dentist will shape it one final time to make sure it works well with your other teeth. He will shine it to match the sheen of your existing teeth, and then you’ll be ready to leave the office. All this is done in less than an hour and involves no shots, as long as it is a simple chip.

Advantages of dental bonding
Not only is the procedure itself easier and quicker than other options, but it is less painful and often less expensive. You can have your smile back in less than an hour and be ready to face the world with confidence once again.
