Restore Your Smile With Ease
If you feel self-conscious when you smile, you’re not alone. Over time, teeth become more and more susceptible to damage and discoloration, even if you’re diligent about your dental hygiene. Whether you have minor damage from normal wear and tear or from your lifestyle, dental bonding can restore your smile in as little as one visit to our Westland, Michigan office. We have the best Westland dentists and help patients from Detroit, Livonia, Ann Arbor, and more.
If you’ve been looking for dental bonding in the Detroit area, our talented team of dentists at Parkside Dental can help. Read on to learn more about this easy cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedure.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding, also known as tooth bonding, involves attaching a plastic-like resin to teeth, then shaping and polishing the resin to alter the tooth’s appearance and structure. The resin is composite, made of high grade quartz and acrylic.
This in-and-out procedure does not usually require heavy anesthesia, and we do not have to remove enamel from your teeth. Therefore, it’s extremely non-invasive. Dental bonding is used to fill in small gaps and imperfections in your teeth and beautifully restore your smile.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
There are numerous benefits of dental bonding, including:
- More affordable than veneers
- Fills gaps between teeth
- Reinforces teeth to prevent further damage
- Restores your confidence in your smile
- Fast treatment
- Predictable results
- Non-invasive installation process
- Treats discoloration, damage, and decay
- Replaces fillings
It is important to note that dental bonding is not permanent, nor does the procedure last as long as porcelain veneers. You can expect to enjoy your results for three to 10 years, depending on your dental hygiene, food, and lifestyle habits. Of course, when the time comes, you can always opt for more bonding.
The Dental Bonding Process
Once you and the dentists at Parkside Dental have decided that tooth bonding is right for you, you’ll make an appointment for the procedure. During your initial visit, our team of dentists will assess your overall oral health, make sure you’re a good candidate for bonding, and pick out a color of resin that most closely matches your natural teeth.
At your next appointment, we will apply a local anesthetic to ensure you won’t feel any pain. Next, we’ll slightly etch the surface of the teeth so the resin will stay in place. After your teeth are prepared, the dentist will apply the resin to your tooth, molding it into the proper shape.
The resin will be hardened using a handheld blue light, then the material will be trimmed and polished to complete the look.
You will leave our office with a new enhanced smile and more confidence. We’ll also make sure to provide you with plenty of after care instructions so you can maintain your new look for as long as possible.
