Cosmetic Bonding in Chicago, IL
COSMETIC BONDING CAN RESTORE CHIPPED OR BROKEN TEETH, FILL IN GAPS, AND RESHAPE YOUR SMILE. BONDING IS A PROCEDURE IN WHICH A COMPOSITE RESIN IS APPLIED TO THE FRONT SURFACE OF THE TOOTH TO IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE OR RESTORE THE TOOTH TO ITS ORIGINAL HEALTHY STATE.
This particular procedure is ideal for restoring small cracks and chips in the teeth. For larger cracks or fractures, a more reliable and predictable method of restoration is a lab fabricated inlay, onlay, crown, or veneer. Your doctor at MG Dentistry will closely work with you to ensure you make a well-informed decision when it comes to designing your desired smile.
The procedure of cosmetic bonding is completed in one appointment and is one of the most conservative methods of treatment. The MG Dentistry team works closely with patients to attain results that look natural. Bonding may sculpt your smile into the most desirable shape for your smile.
Initially, a diagnostic radiographic image or x-ray is taken to analyze how much tooth structure has been compromised. Next, your doctor will discuss the available options to restore the tooth back to good health. If decided that cosmetic bonding is the best method of restoration, the treatment can be completed as early as that day. The procedure involves a slight abrasion of the tooth in order to ensure a strong, solid bond. Next, a matching color of composite is selected and is layered onto the tooth into a desirable shape and contour of the specified tooth. Finally, the tooth will be adjusted and polished.
