Tooth Bonding Dentist Brimfield, IL
A painless cosmetic solution for a smile you’ll love
What is tooth bonding?
Teeth bonding, or dental composite bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure used to improve the appearance of teeth and restore a beautiful smile. A composite resin, which is a hard plastic material, is applied to the tooth and hardened with a curing ultraviolet light. The material used is tooth-colored, and it’s the same material used in composite dental fillings. It blends with your other teeth to produce a natural-looking, aesthetic appearance.
Some ways tooth bonding can improve your smile are:
- Repairing chipped teeth
- Teeth bonding for gaps
- Adding length to a tooth that’s shorter than the others
- Correcting discolored teeth
Our tooth bonding dentists can help you develop an effective treatment plan that will help you regain and maintain your smile.
Who is a good candidate for cosmetic bonding?
Minor damage and misshapen teeth
Tooth bonding is ideal for those who have generally healthy teeth but have incurred slight damage, like a chipped front tooth, or a visible tooth that has a shape or length that’s unaesthetic. That’s why dental bonding of front teeth with minor damage is extremely common. A major break in a tooth, however, often needs to be treated with a crown or by replacing the tooth completely with a dental implant.
Localized tooth discoloration
While tooth bonding can address discoloration in a single tooth, those with widespread discoloration should consider getting their teeth professionally whitened prior to bonding a tooth, since the bonding material cannot be whitened once applied.
Patients that are NOT ideal for dental bonding include those with:
- Major damage to teeth
- Severe tooth decay
- Extremely discolored teeth
- Grinding or clenching habits
The only way to know for sure if you’re a good candidate for tooth bonding is to get a professional evaluation and diagnosis. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, we’re here to help! At Brimfield Family Dentistry, we offer comprehensive tooth repair treatments.
Call us today at (309) 396-3123 to schedule a consultation with a dental bonding dentist.
What’s the process for dental bonding?
The surface of your tooth is made rough and textured so that the bonding material adheres properly. The resin is applied to the tooth where it is molded and shaped until it both repairs the tooth’s damage and looks aesthetically pleasing.
Once the resin is molded appropriately, the dentist will use a special UV light to expedite the resin’s drying process.
