About Tooth Bonding

During this procedure your Jackson, MI cosmetic dentist uses a tooth-colored moldable resin material to cover over flaws in your teeth. This procedure is completely non-invasive and won’t require anesthesia to apply (unless you are having a cavity filled, of course!).

Bonding is typically used for cosmetic reasons to improve your smile’s appearance. Bonding is a fast and inexpensive way to give your smile a more attractive look without needing invasive or time-consuming procedures.

Tooth Bonding Applications

This tooth-colored bonding material can be used to fix these dental imperfections:

  • To fill a cavity
  • To fix chips or cracks in teeth
  • To hide discolorations
  • To close gaps between teeth
  • To change the size, shape or length of a tooth
  • To protect an exposed tooth root

Getting Dental Bonding

Bonding doesn’t require any tooth preparation. We will first clean your teeth to make sure that your smile is free of food, bacteria or other debris. Then we will match the composite bonding to the shade of your tooth to get a seamless, natural look.

Next, we will apply the bonding material over the chips, cracks, discolorations or other problems you are having. Once the resin is shaped properly over the tooth we will harden it using an ultraviolet light and give it a final polish.

Don’t let dental flaws hold you back. Turn to your Jackson, MI family dentist today. Schedule a consultation to find out if you are right for dental bonding.
