Why patients often choose dental bonding for smile enhancement
Drs. Gary Scott and Allyson M. Grove of Family Dentistry in Caledonia work alongside patients to determine if composite bonding for gaps, chips, and imperfections is a suitable solution. This is just one of several cosmetic and restorative procedures available at our Caledonia, Michigan, area office.
What is dental bonding?
Conventional dental bonding uses a composite resin material that can be shaped onto a tooth, cured using a special dental light, and then polished to appear just like natural tooth enamel. Composite resin dental bonding is best for the teeth near the front of the smile and can disguise a wide range of dental issues. Whether you need composite bonding for gaps, cracks, breakage, permanent staining, or other concerns, our team can evaluate you to determine if you are a good candidate.
What can I expect during my upcoming dental bonding appointment?
One of the primary advantages of our composite resin dental bonding is that it is fast and straightforward compared to other restorative and cosmetic treatments like porcelain veneers and dental crowns. Composite bonding starts with an evaluation to talk to patients about this and other options they may be able to consider. If a patient chooses to move forward with bonding, the natural tooth enamel is roughened to allow the bonding material to adhere to the tooth’s structure. Composite bonding is placed onto the tooth, shaped in place, and hardened using a curing light. Once cured, the dentist will then file down the composite material and polish it, ensuring a natural-looking repair!
