Cosmetic Dental Bonding: A Natural-Looking Solution

If you damage your tooth and are searching for a natural-looking restoration, consider restorative bonding. In this procedure, we apply a tooth-colored resin material to your tooth and shape the resin until it matches your naturally occurring tooth. We then harden it in place with a special dental light, effectively bonding it to the tooth. At Joe D. Arbutante, DDS, we will ensure that, regardless of the type of restoration you receive, your smile will look amazing.

Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Bonding

Can dental cosmetic bonding fix my child's chipped tooth?

Yes, it can. As a cosmetic dentist, we can restore your child’s chipped tooth by applying resin to their tooth and shaping it until it matches their natural one. We will use every tool available to match the shade of the resin with the child’s surrounding teeth, so it blends in as best as possible. Other people will most likely not notice a difference between the bonding material and the other teeth. The only thing to note is that if the child’s teeth are still growing, the child may need a revisit in the future.

Not at all. Bonding is a non-invasive procedure and one of the most comfortable restorations you can receive. In order to complete the restoration or to make cosmetic improvements, all we need to do is roughen the tooth slightly and apply a conditioning liquid. Next, we will apply the resin material that matches the shade of your teeth. We will shape the material to match the tooth size as well, before hardening it in place. Since your tooth structure remains intact, you will be comfortable during the procedure. In fact, most people do not need any anesthesia or pain medication for the bonding procedure.

Yes, it can. When you visit our Spring Lake dental office, we can close small gaps between your teeth using this simple procedure. The bonding procedure is an alternative to placing veneers or crowns or undergoing an orthodontic procedure. Since we can typically complete cosmetic bonding in one dental visit, it is the fastest way to complete this transformation.

Yes. Bonding is an excellent way to reshape your teeth. We can use it to lengthen your teeth or change their width. By doing so, your teeth can appear more uniform, and we can eliminate the inconsistencies between your teeth. It only takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth, so reshaping is much easier and faster than people may believe.

Yes, if you have stains on your teeth, we can use bonding to cover them. We suggest trying a whitening procedure first since this can improve the appearance of your smile with relative ease. There are times, however, when a whitening procedure is not enough to remove some of the deep or more significant stains. This is where restorative bonding can be particularly useful. We can place the resin material on top of your stained tooth or teeth in order to improve their appearance. When you visit our Michigan dental office, we can discuss your options with you and complete the procedure in as little as one visit.

Yes, since we apply bonding without removing the enamel on your teeth, the process is reversible. If you want to change course and restore your teeth or change their appearance with an alternative procedure in the future, you can. While most of our patients are satisfied with the appearance of their teeth after the bonding procedure, some use this as a temporary solution while considering more long-term improvements.

If budget is a concern, dental bonding is an affordable and viable option. Since we place and harden bonding material in our office, there is no need for participation from the dental lab. This makes the process more cost-effective than getting dental veneers or crowns. If you are weighing your options between the three, let us know. We can give you a breakdown of what each procedure will cost. For more information, call (616) 842-0090 and schedule a consultation.

A Restorative bonding procedure is durable, natural-looking, and effective. There is no set timeframe for how long the resin will last. It can last for several decades or several years. Taking care of your teeth will help to increase its longevity. Be sure to brush with a soft or electronic toothbrush, so you do not risk eroding your teeth and your restoration. You need to also avoid eating food that is too acidic, while also avoiding any activities that can break or chip your teeth. While bonding material is strong and durable, it is not as strong as a dental crown can be. If you are looking for a longer lasting restoration, then you may want to consider that option as well.
