Dental bonding allows patients to improve their smiles in a very short period of time. This versatile treatment is incredibly popular, because it looks natural, and is non-invasive. Today, our West Bloomfield dentists are here to give you additional information about dental bonding. We hope that this quick overview helps you determine whether bonding can be a helpful addition to your dental plan.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a process by which our dentist applies custom-shaded resin to a patient’s natural tooth structure. The resin hardens and bonds to the tooth, forming a stable connection. With dental bonding, we are able to close gaps between teeth, lengthen short dental enamel, make teeth look better aligned, and even improve bite surfaces.
How long does dental bonding take?
One of the major benefits of this treatment is that the entire process can be completed in just one appointment. This means that you can come into our office with a damaged or unsightly tooth, and leave the same day with a perfected smile.
What is it like to live with dental bonding?
Once the bonding is complete, you’ll be able to eat your favorite foods, drink your favorite drinks, and clean your smile normally. This treatment is truly designed to blend in seamlessly with your existing routine. If your bonding ever becomes damaged, our team can quickly repair it using additional resin.
When you meet with our West Bloomfield dentists, we’ll be able to give you more information about how dental bonding works, and whether it is appropriate for your smile.
