Has one or more of your teeth become chipped or cracked? If so, you should reach out to our office in New Lenox, IL right away. Whether you sustained minor damage to your teeth from an injury, tooth decay, bruxism (teeth grinding), or acid wearing away your enamel, it’s important to strengthen and protect the tooth/teeth from further damage in the future. With dental bonding, we can repair a tooth that has been chipped or cracked and provide it with much-needed protection against further wear and decay.
Dental bonding can also be used to improve gaps between the teeth and lengthen a tooth that is shorter than the others.
Schedule an appointment to see if dental bonding is the right treatment for you. Call us at (815) 462-4838.
What to do After Your Dental Bonding Procedure
The composite resin we provide will strengthen and protect your tooth, but you still need to be careful and make sure you’re not eating or chewing things that can damage the bond.
- Avoid hard candies and anything that’s chewy and/or sticky.
- Don’t chew on ice cubes, or pencils and pens.
- Keep in mind that smoking and drinking coffee, red wine, or soft drinks regularly can stain the bonding on your tooth. If that happens, the bond may need to be replaced with another bond, or with a veneer.
