If you have small chips, cracks, or gaps affecting your front teeth, you may be a candidate for the cosmetic bonding procedure. In as little as one appointment, you could walk away from our office with a healthier, more attractive smile.

In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about dental bonding.

Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Bonding?

There are so many ways we can use dental bonding to improve the function, health, and appearance of your teeth. For example, cosmetic bonding can help close small gaps between front teeth without orthodontics.

Our dentists may use cosmetic bonding in the following ways:

  • Repair teeth with small cavities
  • Repair teeth with small chips and cracks
  • Improve the appearance of misshapen teeth
  • Close small gaps between front teeth
  • Change the shape and/or length of teeth
  • Correct tooth discoloration

To truly know if you’re a candidate for teeth bonding, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with our Grandville cosmetic dentists.

What Can I Expect During My Appointment?

In general, the cosmetic bonding procedure takes one trip to our office. While most people don’t need anesthesia for dental bonding, it’s important to remember that each patient is different. For example, you may require local anesthetic if our dentists are repairing a decayed tooth.

Next, we’ll use a shade guide to ensure the composite resin is a perfect color-match to the rest of your smile. To start the bonding process, one of our dentists will roughen the surface of your tooth and apply a conditioning liquid. This will help ensure the composite resin makes a strong connection with your tooth.

For the next step, the dentist will apply and shape the resin onto your tooth and harden it in place with either a light or laser. Once the material hardens, we’ll make slight adjustments and polish it so it matches the rest of your tooth.
