Repair & Correct Minor Tooth Damage or Cosmetic Imperfections with Dental Bonding
Smile not quite what you wish it could be? Call Dr. Michael Bender at Bender Dental Care in Elgin Illinois if you have cracked, chipped, gapped or discolored teeth. You may find that you are a good candidate for a simple and effective solution known as is dental bonding. The beauty of using this technique is that it is an affordable and affective way to treat both structural and cosmetic dental needs.
Dental Bonding works for the following dental issues:
- Cracked or Fractured Tooth
- Chipped Tooth
- Gap in between teeth
- Discolored tooth
- Slightly crooked teeth
* One thing that Dr. Bender will take the time to go over with you is if you are in fact a good candidate for this dental procedure. We find that the best candidates for dental bonding are those that currently have good oral health, along with naturally strong tooth structure. Additionally, a good candidate is one who is aware of the need and ok with the need to replace the bonding every 5 to 10 years as needed.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding offers both cosmetic and structural restorative benefits for patients. Some of the many advantages Bender Dental Care Patients receive from this procedure include:
- Dental Bonding is pain-free, and fast
- Less expensive option than porcelain veneers
- Requires no alteration of the tooth’s structure
- Immediate, long-lasting results
Composite Dental Bonding Procedure
So you have decided to enjoy the benefits of composite dental bonding….now what? Dr. Bender will have you come in for an appointment where a very mild etching solution will be applied to your teeth. This etching solution is used to create extremely small crevices in the
tooth’s natural enamel which in turn provides a slightly rough surface for which a durable resin is applied to bond materials to your teeth. The resin is then placed on your tooth and high-intensity light cures the resins onto your tooth’s surface. This process of applying resin and in turn hardening the resign takes just minutes. When the last coat has been applied to your tooth, the bonded material is then sculpted to fit your tooth and finely polished.
One of the key benefits to this procedure is that the resin that we use comes in a variety of shades so that we can match it to your natural teeth. We find that this procedure typically takes an hour to two (depending on your particular case)
