Cosmetic Dental Bonding in Lakeview & South Loop

South Loop Dentist

Similar to veneers, dental bonding can alter both the look and functionality of your teeth. However, instead of using a porcelain face that is applied to the front of the tooth, a naturally-colored filling material made of composite resin will be mechanically and chemically bonded to the teeth to create a straighter, whiter smile.

Dental bonding can:

  • Fill in the gaps between your teeth
  • Change the size of misshapen or small teeth
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Whiten darkened or stained teeth
  • Shape or color a single tooth to change the look of your smile
  • Protect a portion of your tooth’s root that is exposed due to receding gums

Chipped or worn teeth can be protected from further damage with bonding, restoring them to their natural look.

Resin Bonding Requires One Appointment

To begin the process, we will roughen the teeth and apply a conditioning gel. Tooth-colored resin is then positioned on the teeth and sculpted into the desired shape. We then use a high-intensity light to harden the resin and bond it to the teeth. You can expect the process to take 30-60 minutes per tooth to complete. Unless you are using the dental bonding procedure to help fill a cavity, no anesthesia will be required.

The process is as simple as that! You will leave our office feeling confident in your smile once again.

After the procedure is complete, you will have a strong bond. This procedure will greatly alter the look of your smile and create the healthy, whiter smile you’ve always wanted. Rest assured that the process of dental bonding will last a long time; the length of time that the procedure lasts depends on how much bonding was completed in addition to your oral habits. You can expect the procedure to last for an average of 10 years, at which point the material can be replaced.

Please remember that dental bonding can chip, so it is important to avoid habits that could jeopardize the material. Chewing on your fingernails, pens, ice, or other hard objects may result in chipping or dislodging the bonded material. If you notice that there is a chip, contact our team to have it fixed!
