Elmhurst Dentists Provide Overview Of The Possibilities of Dental Bonding

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Apr 20, 2016

As you explore various treatment options to improve your smile, don’t forget about dental bonding. Dental bonding is used for all kinds of purposes in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. In today’s short article our Elmhurst dentists will be telling you about how we use dental bonding to help all kinds of dental patients.

Dental bonding is a fast treatment that simply involves our dentist applying dental resin to the appropriate spots on your smile. As the dental resin it cures, it hardens and bonds with the patient’s dental enamel. The finished product is a smooth and strong surface that looks like real enamel.

Dental bonding is used so frequently in dentistry because it is so versatile. Here are just some of the things that we can accomplish using dental bonding:

Whiten and brighten teeth

If you are unable to whiten your teeth with bleaching treatments, or if you want to resurface your tooth while lightening your smile, dental bonding can help. You can cover discolored or dull enamel with white, fresh dental resin.

Restore damaged teeth

Teeth with existing cracks and chips can be fortified and rebuilt with dental resin. And because our dental team shades dental resin to suit each individual patient, the bonded part of your tooth will blend with your natural enamel.

Instant orthodontics

Our dental team also uses bonding to make teeth look better aligned. We can build out crooked and crowded teeth to make them look straight, and we can close gaps between teeth by widening the natural tooth with resin.

When you come in to speak with our dental team, you can go over all of the dental objectives you would like to achieve. Then, our dental team will take a look at your smile, and let you know whether dental bonding will meet your goals.
