Dental bonding repairs a chipped tooth in one appointment. Our Grand Haven dentists use a composite resin (tooth-colored putty) to restore the strength and appearance of your tooth.
Unlike veneers, you don’t have to wait weeks for your tooth restoration to be made in an off-site lab. Instead, our dentist directly applies the resin to your tooth so you can leave our office smiling.
Our dentist may recommend teeth bonding to fix small cosmetic issues. For example, teeth bonding for gaps can be an alternative for orthodontic treatment as long as there are no significant issues with teeth and jaw alignment.
First, our teeth bonding dentist will use a shade guide to determine what color will best match your tooth. Next, our dentist will etch the surface of your tooth and apply a light layer of conditioning liquid. That way, the composite resin will create a strong bond with your tooth.
Once our teeth bondingdentist applies the composite resin to your tooth, they’ll harden it with a LED light. After the resin cures, your teeth will be as good as new. You should be able to eat and drink normally immediately after your procedure, although you may notice some slight discomfort at first. As long as you practice good oral hygiene and try to avoid foods that might chip or crack the resin, teeth bonding can last for several years.
Cosmetic bonding is a great way to gain more confidence in your smile. At Grand Haven Smiles, we’re happy to go over your cosmetic dentistry options to help you make the best choice for your teeth.
