Tinley Park Cosmetic Dentist Answers Your Questions About Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Written by Dr. Zaibak on Jul 2, 2013

If you are looking for a fast, non-invasive, and simple way to improve the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dental bonding may be right for you! Today our Orland Park cosmetic dentist is providing answers to many common questions about dental bonding. I hope this explanation helps you determine whether you can benefit from dental bonding yourself!

Q: How does dental bonding improve the appearance of teeth?

A: Dental bonding uses custom-shaded dental resin to cover dental problems and fill in damaged parts of dental enamel. Our dentist applies the dental resin directly to your teeth and then cures it to help it set.

Q: How long does dental bonding take to complete?

A: Dental bonding delivers results in only one dental appointment! Once your dental resin is applied and has set, you will see full results immediately!

Q: Once I have dental bonding, how do I care for it?

A: You should care for your teeth as normal—by brushing and flossing as recommended—in order to keep your dental bonding strong and looking fresh. Caring for your teeth post-dental bonding is pretty intuitive, so it should fit in seamlessly with your existing dental hygiene routine.

Q: What things do I need to consider before I undergo dental bonding?

A: When you meet with our dentist, we will determine, based on the current state of your smile, whether your teeth are suited for dental bonding. Sometimes patients do need to have ongoing dental infections (cavities and gum disease) treated before they can undergo dental bonding.

More and more patients are turning to dental bonding because it allows you to get a stunning smile without invasive or lengthy dental procedures! If you want to learn more about what dental bonding can do for you, give our Tinley Park cosmetic dentist office a call to get started!
