Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding - Dentist, Cosmetic Dentistry - Southfield Family Dental Center - bondingDental bonding is a technique in which a tooth-like resin is carefully sculpted and affixed to your teeth.  Dental bonding creates a strong, durable surface that is indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel.

Dental bonding is an excellent solution to dental problems including:

  • Repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Make teeth look longer
  • Change the shape of teeth
  • Cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • Protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede

But how exactly does it work?

  • Shade of composite resin is selected to match the color of the tooth
  • Surface of the tooth is roughened and conditioning liquid applied to adhere bonding material to tooth
  • Tooth-colored, putty-like resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape
  • After being shaped, the resin is hardened and the surface is polished and finished.
