Posted on 1/30/2019 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
Cosmetic dental bonding is a fairly simple procedure that applies composite material to the teeth for shaping. This procedure can fix a variety of imperfections, leaving you with a beautifully improved smile. There are many great reasons to consider it. High-Quality Results Dental bonding is a good cosmetic dentistry procedure because it provides beautiful, high-quality results. Your teeth will look beautiful and natural.

These enamel complications should be promptly addressed before they result in tooth decay. High fever tampers with the calcification process of the enamel in young teeth. This causes the enamel to be discolored and have an irregular surface. The rough patches on the enamel are more susceptible to decay. These are some of the ways your teeth could get damaged by the factors mentioned above. Tooth Erosion An incomplete calcification of teeth gives rise to a very weak enamel. This enamel is easily worn out by gastric juices which then flakes away as you chew, grind, brush your teeth or take carbonated drinks. Eroded teeth cause tooth sensitivity to heat and coldness in extreme situations, and the nerves can get exposed as well. Cavities This is one of the most chronic and widespread cases of tooth damage.
