At The Grove City Center for Dentistry, we find that dental bonding is an affordable procedure that offers many of the same benefits as porcelain veneers.
Dr. Simone and Dr. Lowe use composite resin to fill in small cosmetic flaws, cover stains and reshape your teeth. Cosmetic bonding also can help to repair chips, cracks, or broken teeth.
The Dental Bonding Procedure at The Grove City Center for Dentistry
When we apply bonding to your teeth, Dr. Simone or Dr. Lowe will micro-etch the surface of your teeth with a special conditioning formula. We will apply composite in several carefully placed layers and then use a curing light to harden the material. Finally, we will shape and polish the newly bonded teeth to give them a natural, realistic shine.
Does cosmetic bonding get rid of stains on teeth?
Some tooth stains from red wine, grape juice, tomato sauce, and tobacco products can be removed with professional teeth whitening from The Grove City Center for Dentistry. However, stains caused by overexposure to fluoride, certain antibiotics, and some endodontic procedures actually originate from inside the tooth. These stains cannot be removed by teeth whitening systems, and we may recommend cosmetic bonding or dental veneers. Dr. Simone and Dr. Lowe will consult with you to determine if cosmetic bonding is the best option for your dental needs.
How do I care for my Cosmetic Bonding?
Composite resin mimics your natural tooth enamel. So, we recommend that you care for your bonded teeth just like you already care for your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily, and visit The Grove City Center for Dentistry for regular dental exams and cleanings. Make sure you use a minimally abrasive toothpaste to protect the surface of your cosmetic bonding.
