Dental Bonding Quiz Answer Key

1. True. Dental bonding provides many of the same restoration capabilities, but for a more affordable price than alternatives such as porcelain veneers.

2. True. Dental bonding is special composite resin used to repair and reshape teeth. In order to address breaks or fractures, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will apply several thin layers of resin to the tooth. As the resin cures, your Livingston dentists will mold and sculpt the tooth. Once cured, your tooth will be returned to full function and appearance.

3. True. Whether a tooth is naturally malformed or worn down by dental issues such as teeth grinding, dental bonding can restore your tooth. In addition, bonding can also close unsightly gaps between teeth.

4. True. In order to ensure a more natural looking restoration, the bonding resin can be shaded to blend with your smile.
