Dental Bonding – Evansville, WI
Flawlessly Repair Damaged Teeth
Do you have a few minor dental imperfections that make you embarrassed to smile in front of others? Over time, this can severely impair your self-confidence. It might even keep you from attending social events that you could benefit your personal and professional life. At Maple Grove Family Dental, we offer a fast, painless way to flawlessly repair damaged teeth: dental bonding. Dr. Melanie White would be more than happy to give your smile the transformation it needs to really shine.
What Is Dental Bonding?
Also called direct bonding or cosmetic bonding, dental bonding uses a putty-like substance called composite resin that’s made of fine acrylic and glass particles. Dr. White can mold, sculpt, and bond it to your tooth to conceal minor cosmetic imperfections. The resin is personalized to match the same color as the rest of your teeth, so onlookers shouldn’t be able to tell that you had dental work done.
What Problems Can Dental Bonding Fix?
You might benefit from dental bonding if your smile suffers from any of the following:
- Cracks, chips, or fractures
- Slight gaps
No matter which of these issues plagues your smile, dental bonding can take care of it.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
The process of getting bonding done is quick and painless. Depending on how many teeth you need treated, it can often be completed in a single appointment. First, our team will select the shade of composite resin that most closely resembles your enamel. After roughening up the tooth’s surface to better help the resin attach to it, we apply the resin in layers until the desired results are achieved. We then shine an ultraviolet light onto the resin, hardening it into place within seconds. Once we make any final adjustments and give the tooth one last polish, we’ll send you on your way to enjoy your brand-new smile!
Caring for Your Bonded Teeth
One major advantage of dental bonding is that, if you take good care of your teeth, your results can last up to a decade. Brushing and flossing daily can prevent plaque buildup that could compromise your oral health. Additionally, schedule your biannual checkups and cleanings with us so we can ensure your bonding is still in good condition and make repairs as needed.
