Looking for an economical way to improve the look of your teeth? Then turn to dental bonding.

Are you dealing with a tooth that is minimally chipped, stained or broken? Even the smallest flaws can be easy to spot, especially next to healthier looking teeth. Luckily, dental bonding from your Trenton, MI dentist Dr. Nicholas Booker can make your smile new againCosmetic Dentistry while also aligning with your budget. Find out more about this procedure and how it can help you.

What is dental bonding?

This cosmetic dentistry procedure is becoming a more popular way to cover over small dental issues using a tooth-colored resin. This resin is the same kind used for dental fillings. Before it is hardened the resin is completely malleable, making it easy to sculpt and mold around the tooth to give it a realistic and more appealing look.

Dental bonding gets its name because after the resin is applied to the tooth and sculpted to the ideal shape, your cosmetic dentists in Trenton, MI will then use a dental laser to permanently harden the material to the tooth.

What is dental bonding good for?

Dental bonding can be used to fix a variety of minor dental issues such as,

  • A small crack or chip
  • To close up a small space between teeth
  • To cover a stain
  • To fix a broken tooth
  • To fill a cavity

What should I expect from dental bonding?

The first thing we will do is apply a special dental acid to the surface of the teeth, which will roughen them and make it easier for the bonding resin to attach to the enamel. This is completely painless and non-invasive, so you won’t have to worry about needing anesthesia.

Once the acid is applied then we will go ahead and place the bonding material over the tooth and sculpt it to its ideal shape. Then the light will be directed at the bonding resin to help set it. A final buffing and polish of the new tooth and your smile is good to go.
