How dental bonding from our office in Des Plaines can rejuvenate your smile!

One of today's premier options in cosmetic dentistry, dental bonding is the application of resin material to aesthetically flawed teeth in order to enhance or restore their appearance. Here at Suburban Family Dental in Des Plaines, IL, your dentists, Dr. Roman Dziubyk, Dr. Lorelei Grise', and Dr. Michelle Radeka, use dental bonding to restore patients' smiles—read on to learn more!

Dental Bonding Overview

Dental bonding can be used for a variety of purposes, including to repair broken teeth, form dental cavities, close gaps between teeth, eliminate discolorations, and alter the appearance of misshapen teeth. Dental practitioners also use bonding to protect the exposed roots of teeth.

Dental Bonding Procedure

Your dental care provider will use a shade guide to select a composite resin that matches the shade of your teeth. The tooth surface is then conditioned with liquid, preparing it for the bonding material. Afterward, the resin is applied, shaped, and smoothed to the desired shape on the teeth. Once this is completed, the resin is hardened with a curing light, and your dental care provider trims, shapes, and polishes the tooth to match the gloss of your smile.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding can usually be done in just one visit. The dental bonding procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete per tooth. Very little enamel is removed during the procedure, which gives it an advantage over veneers and crowns. Moreover, bonding is among the least expensive cosmetic dental treatments.

Your Dental Consultation

A dental consultation is a visit with your dental care provider where you can discuss your issues, concerns, and treatment options. During a consultation, your dentist will perform an exam to check the health of your teeth and gums, as well as talk to you about the changes you would like to make to your smile. They will then determine if your dental problems can be solved with bonding.
