The chipped tooth. There’s no worse feeling than coming to the realization that you have damaged something as “permanent” as a tooth. But for as everlasting as we believe our teeth to be, things do happen. The important thing to remember is that in the event of a cracked or chipped tooth, a gapped smile, or even decayed, amalgam-filled, disproportioned teeth, all can be rectified thanks to direct composite bonding performed by the Beverly Hills dentist that Los Angeles prefers and trusts.
The Swiss army knife of >cosmetic dentistry procedures, direct composite bonding is versatile, correcting any number of problems with your smile. Utilizing a putty-like material that can be shaped and formed in whichever way necessary, direct composite bonding is cemented – or bonded – to the tooth’s visible surface; the application hidden to the naked eye given the ability of our Beverly Hills dentist to match said bonding to the color of your entire set of teeth. The end result is a beautifully made-over smile, correcting for any of the following circumstances:

Cracked or Chipped Teeth:
In the unfortunate event of a cracked or chipped tooth, the first thing you might think about is the impact on your appearance, and rightly so. The good news is that direct composite bonding will bring the look of your tooth (teeth) back to “good-as-new” levels. The even better news is that your tooth will function just as good as it ever did before, thanks to layers of durable resin applied and dried in a matter of minutes.
Even gapped teeth can be brought back together, without the use of expensive braces; instead with a much more affordable option in direct composite bonding, performed by a top cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles. Literally filling in the gaps of your smile and shaping it all for a completely natural look, direct composite bonding will get you smiling in more ways than one.
While the original silver filling of your cavities was necessary at the time, the act was oftentimes performed without regard to personal appearance. Not requiring an outside the lab procedure, cosmetic bonding can restore and repair a cavity quickly, and pain-free, doing away with unsightly fillings and providing a tooth that looks almost identical to the rest.
While these are but a few of the circumstances that call for direct composite bonding, other cosmetic achievements like improving discolored teeth, making teeth appear longer, and protecting teeth against receding gums are all attainable through the procedure. Not only is it versatile, and can correct for a variety of unfortunate circumstances, but its inexpensive and easy to implement; usually performed in one short office visit.
In the end, you won’t only have a new smile, but the health of your teeth benefit as well, as direct composite bonding preserves the natural structure of the tooth, and requires very little removal of tooth enamel.
