What Are the Benefits of Bonded Restorations?
There are several benefits associated with bonded restorations, including:
- Natural, tooth-like appearance
- Firm adhesion to the tooth structure
- Allows you to avoid more extensive restorations
- Minimal removal of tooth structure
One of the goals of your Tampa dentist is to provide you with a strong, healthy smile. If we need to remove a lot of tooth structure to place a specific type of restoration, we can leave the tooth vulnerable to fracture. Thankfully, with bonded restorations, we don’t have to remove as much healthy tooth structure. Instead, the materials that bond the restoration to the tooth add to the strength of the remaining natural tooth structure.
