Small imperfections that can be treated with dental bonding include small chips or cracks. They can also include filling in gaps and even covering exposed roots. Dental bonding can reshape your teeth and it is tooth colored so you don’t need to worry about it appearing unnatural. Platte Valley Dental Care uses dental bonding regularly to give patients a new smile.
Inlays and Onlays
Unlike dental crowns, inlays and onlays are a fraction of the size of crowns and are permanently attached to your teeth to restore the shape of your teeth. They are usually used when there is damage to your teeth or damage to your bite. Inlays and onlays can not only make the shape of your tooth complete again, they can help you bite your teeth together correctly, which can actually solve a lot of other dental problems like grinding, or even sleep apnea.
