If you need to repair minor chips, cracks or gaps without undergoing a more complex procedure, dental bonding is an excellent, cost-effective solution. Though this is a less expensive solution, Dr. Patel and our team do not recommend bonding if you have multiple large fillings or cavities in your front teeth or if the gap is large. Most bonded fillings last about three to five years and require minor touch-ups over time. Like all the filling materials at Pure Dental Spa, our dental bonding in Chicago, IL is BPA-free.
If you find yourself with chips, cracks, or stains littering your smile and are looking for an immediate solution, dental bonding may be the right option for you. There are several advantages to dental bonding compared to other cosmetic procedures:
Dental bonding often requires little or no use of anesthesia unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth. Dr. Rajul Patel and our team of dental experts will match the shade of your tooth to the correct composite resin color. The entire dental bonding procedure, depending on how many teeth are being treated, can take up to 30-60 minutes.
First, we recommend completing a cosmetic consultation to determine if dental bonding is the best solution for your oral health. Once you and Dr. Patel determine bonding to be the right choice for you, the procedure may begin.
Our team of cosmetic dentists will prep the crack or chipped tooth by roughening and shaping the top surface, without the removal of any healthy enamel. Next, an adhesive bonding agent will be placed on the prepped area to make sure the bonding composite is strongly adhered on the tooth/teeth. The bonding material will then be placed on the prepared tooth, where our cosmetic dentist will shape and apply layers of material as needed. A high intensity ultraviolet light will then be directly applied to the bonding agent to harden the composite. Finally, the tooth will be smoothed and polished to deliver a natural and perfected tooth!
