Glass Fiber Reinforcement (Ribbond)

Ribbond: The #1 Rated Fiber Reinforcement

Achieving a great result with restorative dental work requires two things: the skill and experience of a dentist like Dr. Naz and great materials. That’s why we use Ribbond, a fiber-reinforced patch that keeps teeth together. It is much more effective at preventing fractures and premature tooth loss than other materials because it’s made using the same technology that makes boat hulls, airplane body parts, and even bulletproof vests!

What We Use Ribbond For

Ribbond has many different applications in dental work. At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, we use it for:

  • bridging cracks in teeth (similar to repairing cracks in a windshield)
  • periodontal splinting, to temporarily stabilize the teeth until further treatment can be completed
  • same-day bridges

Brian’s Story

Brian called from another state while he was in excruciating pain. A tooth on the upper right that had a crown was all of a sudden giving him throbbing aches after many years of being healthy. He hadn’t slept one night in a week. After having enough, Brian flew in just to see us on a Friday afternoon for an evaluation. When we removed the existing crown, he had a huge crack in the tooth that almost had the tooth split in half! The nerve was alive and healthy, but the tooth was not connected. We excavated the crack carefully, reinforced it with a glass fiber patch called Ribbond, and bonded his tooth back together with a better crown. Brian has slept soundly ever since with no root canal or extraction needed. This is his testimonial. We love getting patients out of pain and saving teeth!
