Dental Bonding Bloomington IL
Dental Bonding Bloomington IL Trusts for Results
Bonding is one of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer here at Cottage Dental Care. It’s a technique similar to veneers but instead of using a porcelain facing, we use a tooth-colored filling material. We bond this composite resin directly to the tooth to improve its appearance. Bonding your teeth with resin takes just one appointment. Because your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, it’s important to make sure it’s the best it can be. And as the key to self-confidence and your overall appearance, you need to care for your smile. Your teeth can stain over time from smoking or eating certain foods. Injuries can cause chips or other imperfections in your teeth. Let us fix those situations with bonding. Cottage Dental Care has the dental bonding Bloomington IL trusts for results.
What is Bonding?
The dentist will apply a composite resin to the tooth’s surface, after selecting a shade that best matches your other teeth. First, the dentist will roughen up the enamel to prepare it for treatment, then will apply the bond with a special light. The dentist will then polish the tooth once hardened. All of this with no need for anesthesia!
If you have chipped, discolored or misshapen teeth, you are a good candidate for bonding. This process is also considered an ideal transitional treatment while patients await another type of procedure, such as veneers. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are applied to the front of the tooth. They’re more costly than bonding but they last longer and resist staining better.
