Elmhurst Cosmetic Dentist Explains the Advantages of Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Jul 2, 2013

Our Elmhurst cosmetic dentist office offers a wide number of cosmetic treatments in order to suit different patients with different dental needs. Today we are talking in depth about one of the treatments we offer—dental bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding is one of simplest and fastest ways to correct dental damage!

How does dental bonding work?

During the dental bonding process our dentist uses dental resin to cover or fill in cosmetic dental issues. The dental resin is then cured for maximum strength and stability. Once the dental bonding is complete, you will notice full aesthetic results right away. The dental resin we use is designed to hold up to the wear and tear of chewing, speaking, and environmental damage.

Can dental bonding help me?

Dental bonding is suitable for many patients suffering from common cosmetic complaints. If you want to achieve any of these cosmetic results, dental bonding may be able to help you….

· Cover stained or discolored enamel with natural-looking white dental resin (the resin will be shaded to match your natural enamel shade)

· Correct cracks or chips in the teeth

· Close spaces between teeth

· Perfect the shape or edges of teeth

How do I get started?

The first step is to schedule a consultation with our dentist. This will allow us to determine whether your teeth are healthy enough for dental bonding (if you have existing cavities, these may need to be treated before you can undergo dental bonding). During your consultation we will also be able to help you visualize how dental bonding will enhance your teeth.
