Bonding | Dentist in Waterford MI
Stannard & Studt & Wolf Dentistry offers superior dental bonding that is natural-looking as well as durable. It is the perfect dental procedure for those who have chipped, cracked, discolored or uneven teeth, or need to alter the tooth’s alignment, close gaps between the teeth or for other cosmetic reasons. Dental bonding can also be performed to repair damage that has occurred because of tooth decay.
Dental Bonding Preparation
During your dental bonding procedure, your tooth will be roughened in order to create tiny crevices in the enamel. The small crevices will give your tooth an uneven surface that will make it easier for it to accept the dental bonding resin and ensure that it will stay adhered to the tooth over time. Once the tooth has been prepared, the dentist will apply a gel to the tooth’s surface, followed by a primer/bond agent that will act as a type of glue between the bonding material and your tooth. Once everything has been applied, a special high-intensity light will be used to harden each individual layer of resin, with each layer taking just a few minutes to harden. Once the last coat has been applied, the dentist will sculpt the resin to perfectly fit your tooth. This is followed by a professional dental polishing that will give your tooth a lustrous, natural-looking finish. The entire dental bonding procedure should only take one to two hours, depending on your particular needs.
We color match our bonding resin
Dental bonding resin comes in several different shades to match the color of the rest of your teeth, leaving it almost impossible to tell that you have had any work performed. However, the dental bonding material is porous, so if you smoke, the resin will turn yellow. Because the bonded tooth could stand out from the rest in this case, you may want to discuss with your dentist how to maintain the color or have whitening services performed to keep your teeth looking uniform in appearance.
