Bonding Not Being Able to Correct a Dental Problem
While it is a great long-term solution for various defects of the teeth and unsightly conditions, there are times when it wouldn't be a useful choice to go with for your own dental issue.
One of the biggest things it cannot correct is when a person has severely crooked teeth. Generally, this is something that requires the use of braces, not bonding. Bonding might be able to make the teeth appear different than they do, but straightening them completely is something that requires braces.
Large holes in the teeth are something that are unable to be fixed through bonding. While our professional dentists can help to repair gaps that a person may have by reshaping the teeth with bonding, large cavities or holes in the teeth require fillings, root canals, or crowns in order to look their best.
Bonding is a great method for creating a healthier, more beautiful smile, but it may not be the only option you have depending on your particular situation. Our dentists can help you determine the best course of action to take.
If you're considering bonding, or any other dental treatment, speak with our dental professionals. We can provide more information on what can be done to provide you with that perfect smile you need and want.
