Beautifying With Bonding

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Maple Grove fix chipped tooth

A dentist’s toolkit is filled with tools for fixing most types of tooth issues. In this post from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove MN, we are going to talk about a cosmetic dentistry treatment called bonding.

The dental bonding procedure involves a resin material that is durable and natural looking. It is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

We can use bonding to fix problems caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can protect tooth roots if the gums have receded.

Discolored teeth can also be lightened with bonding. Since bonding material is easily molded, teeth can be lengthened or re-shaped to more pleasing proportions. Bonding is commonly used as part of a total smile transformation.

At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove we transform smiles every day with dental bonding and other cosmetic dentistry techniques. We also offer complete family dentistry, and serve patients from throughout the area including Champlin, Plymouth MN, and Osseo. Call us for an appointment today!
