Just Chipped a Tooth? It’s No Problem in Fairhope!
Have you ever chipped or broken a tooth? It’s one of the most annoying things that can happen. If you’ve broken a front tooth, you feel like you can’t go outside. If you’ve broken a back tooth, you can’t stop exploring it with your tongue, it’s difficult to eat and chew, and if it’s not repaired, can create even more problems, such as decay or further breakage.
You may think, “now what?” but don’t! Many chips, cracks, and breaks can be easily repaired in one visit with dental bonding.
At Northcutt Dental Practice in Fairhope, our dentists will create a composite resin paste that’s custom-matched to your tooth color. The tooth is lightly sanded and coated with a primer. The resin is carefully sculpted onto the tooth, then hardened with a special light, after which it’s polished so that it blends with your tooth.
Dental bonding in Fairhope can help restore or reshape your teeth in a variety of ways. The same composite material used for tooth bonding is also used for tooth-colored fillings, to lengthen crowns, close spaces between teeth, and cover deeply stained teeth.
Dr. David Northcutt and all of our dentists have the skilled technique and artistic eye required for successful dental bonding. Make an appointment at any one of our three dental offices in Fairhope, Bay Minette, or Mobile if you’ve broken a tooth, or want to discuss how dental bonding can improve your smile.
