Let’s face it. We put our teeth through a lot of wear and tear. If you’re like most people, you have more than one concern about your smile. You may not only want a whiter smile, but a straighter, better aligned or more consistently shaped and spaced smile. Fortunately all of these concerns can be addressed by one simple procedure, cosmetic bonding. To see if cosmetic bonding is right for you, just make an appointment with the experienced and attentive dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. The cosmetic dentistry experts at Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serve patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and nearby areas.
The Cosmetic Bonding Procedure
Cosmetic bonding procedures are surprisingly simple. The dentist starts by finding a composite resin shade that matches your teeth. Then the surface of your tooth is roughened and a conditioning liquid is applied. This helps the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired tooth shape. An ultraviolet light or laser is then used to harden the putty- like resin. After the material is hardened, the dentist will trim, shape and polish it to match the sheen of the tooth surface.
What Problems Can Cosmetic Bonding Fix?
- Dental bonding is an incredibly versatile cosmetic procedure. Dental bonding can help to correct:
- Decayed teeth (except cavities)
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gaps and spaces
- Elongate shortened teeth
- Irregular shaping
- An alternative to amalgam fillings
- Protect tooth roots exposed by receding gums
Although cosmetic bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures, it may not be able to correct more severe tooth damage or misalignments.
