Grand Rapids Tooth Bonding – Cosmetic Dentists
Grand Rapids, Holland, Muskegon, Rockford and surrounding Michigan areas
Tooth bonding, often called dental bonding, is a quick and effective way to address a number of cosmetic and general dental problems. Both faster and more cost effective than many other treatments, tooth bonding is a wonderful solution for issues including:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Small spaces and gaps
- Irregularly shaped or sized teeth
- Teeth weakened by decay or trauma
The Tooth Bonding Process
Tooth bonding is applied directly to the surface of teeth, but cannot adhere to the tooth’s naturally smooth enamel. To prepare the teeth for bonding, enamel must first be slightly roughed – a process that provides a porous surface for the resin to bind with.
Dental bonding is applied in layers, each one hardened before the next is placed. Once the process is complete, the bonding is shaped and polished to look and feel like natural tooth enamel and, because the tooth bonding used by our cosmetic dentists is colored to perfectly match adjacent teeth, it is able to seamlessly integrate into your smile.
The tooth bonding process can often be completed in a single office visit and should be completely functional as soon as you leave. This is much faster than alternative options such as porcelain veneers – although it should be noted that bonding will not last as long as more involved treatments.
Tooth bonding is a good solution for a number of our patients, but may not be right for you. The best way to learn if bonding can help you reach your goals in by contacting our Grand Rapids cosmetic dentists and scheduling an informative and personalized treatment consultation.
