Can You Get Dental Bonding If You Also Have Partial Dentures?

Posted on 11/10/2018 by Dr. Michael Drone
Can You Get Dental Bonding If You Also Have Partial Dentures?Dental bonding is a procedure that can help restore the smile and can improve the appearance of an individual. It can help repair broken, chipped or cracked teeth. It helps with people who have discolored teeth. It can also help people who have gaps between their teeth. While it serves many useful purposes, some wonder how it can help a person who has dentures.

When it Can Help

The simple answer is that dental bonding can help some people with dentures. It is not something a person with a full set of dentures will turn to. In most cases the best way to fix problems with a full set of dentures is to replace them. Partial dentures are a different story. It is very possible for a person with a partial denture to turn to dental bonding. The question they can ask is when it is appropriate.

The answer about when to turn to dental bonding if you have partial dentures is often the same as when you want to turn to dental bonding if you do not have dentures. Dental bonding can help with broken, chipped, cracked, discolored teeth. It can help when there are gaps in the teeth.

When It is Not Appropriate

The easier question to answer is when dental bonding is not appropriate for someone with partial dentures. Partial dentures rely on the surrounding teeth to keep them in place. They typically have some piece that holds the denture in place by connecting it to the surrounding teeth.

If a person has chipped or broken one of the teeth surrounding the partial denture, dental bonding could create a problem. The tooth with the bonding may not have the strength to support the partial dentures and could cause a failure of both the natural tooth and the dentures.

To find out if you are a candidate for dental bonding with or without partial dentures, contact the professionals at our offices to schedule an appointment.
