If you want to improve your smile, but you’re not sure where to start, our Tinley Park dentists are here to help. We offer the guidance, expertise, and experience you need to make important dental health decisions. As part of work as educators, we sometimes shine a spotlight on a specific dental treatment or problem; that’s what we’re doing today: talking about dental bonding. Keep reading to get a better idea of whether this treatment can meet your needs.
Dental bonding is a versatile treatment option for people who want to achieve restorative and/or cosmetic results. You can use bonding to lighten the appearance of specific teeth, or your entire smile, close gaps between teeth, and correct existing dental damage. Our team can also improve your bite alignment and balance with composite bonding.
The bonding treatment process is both fast, simple, and cost-effective. When you come in for dental bonding, our team will prep your tooth to ensure that the composite will adhere to your dentals structure. Then, we’ll apply custom-bonded composite resin to your tooth and shape it to suit your needs. Once it’s perfect, we cure the resin so that it hardens and bonds to your dental enamel.
When the bonding process is complete, your tooth will look whole, natural, and unblemished. Because composite resin mimics the durability and appearance of real enamel, you’ll be able to jump back into your normal routine quickly. The entire process can be completed in just one appointment; this treatment is often beneficial for people who are suffering from unexpected dental damage.
Additionally, dental bonding is considerably less expensive than other resurfacing dental treatments like veneers or LUMINEERS.
As always, our Orland Park dentists are here to answer any questions you may have, and to help you determine whether bonding can help you achieve your dental goals. You can reach our dental team by calling our office, or by using the Contact Us page on our website to submit an inquiry.
