You can improve the appearance of chipped, cracked or discolored teeth with just one simple appointment. For cosmetic bonding in Madison Heights, Art Dentistry Center is here to help you smile with confidence.
At Art Dentistry Center, we do everything we can to help our patients enhance the quality of their smiles with non-invasive dental treatments. That is why we offer cosmetic bonding to patients seeking to improve the appearance of their teeth.
Cosmetic bonding is a process in which an enamel-like composite resin is applied to a tooth's surface. The resin is made from dental-quality plastics and glass particles that can be shaded to match the color of your natural tooth. We apply the resin to your teeth and sculpt it to an ideal shape, cure it, and then polish it for a completely natural look.
Bonding is often performed in order to fill in small gaps between your teeth or to enhance the color of your teeth. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice. Bonding is also used as a tooth-colored filling for small cavities and broken or chipped tooth enamel. In addition, bonding can be used to cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to enhance its shape.
For patients looking to correct minor cosmetic flaws, our dentist recommends bonding as an alternative to veneers. Bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping compared to veneers, but cosmetic bonding is more affordable. Due to the versatility of the composite resin used in the procedure, cosmetic bonding can also be easily reapplied or repaired as needed. Cosmetic bonding is also completely non-invasive and can usually be accomplished in a single visit to our Madison Heights office.
With proper care, your cosmetic bonding will last about ten years. Our dentist recommends maintaining good oral hygiene and scheduling regular checkups to ensure the health and longevity of your dental bonding.
