Transform Your Smile with Dental Bonding
Dr. Jay W. Chrisman and Dr. David D. Wyse offer conservative dental bonding at their Bloomington, IL, practice. With this treatment, they can make minor cosmetic alterations and repairs using tooth-colored composite resin. Dental bonding can correct a diverse range of aesthetic flaws, ranging from small chips to slight orthodontic issues. The treatment involves no alteration of your original teeth, and it is very affordable. Following a detailed consultation at Chrisman & Wyse Cosmetic & General Dentistry, we can determine your candidacy for bonding.
Will Dental Bonding Work on My Blemishes?
During dental bonding treatment, Dr. Chrisman or Dr. Wyse will apply composite resin to your teeth, reshaping them and concealing blemishes. The treatment can be a good solution for many different aesthetic concerns. You may be a candidate for bonding if you want to address any of the following issues:
- Chipped teeth
- Small cracks in your teeth
- Small gaps between your teeth
- Unusually shaped or worn teeth
- Slight misalignment, as long as it does not affect the force of your bite
- Internal or severe stains that will do respond to teeth whitening
Since dental bonding is intended for cosmetic purposes, the treatment is best suited for the front teeth. The composite resin will not usually last long on molars, which come under a lot of pressure.
Your Dental Bonding Procedure
Bonding is a non-invasive procedure that involves virtually no prep work. Dr. Chrisman or Dr. Wyse will buff your teeth with a mild chemical solution. Creating these microscopic grooves on your teeth will increase the surface area and the strength of the bonding agent.
Next, we will coat your teeth in the bonding agent before applying the composite. The material will be a near-perfect match to your smile, and we will artfully sculpt it to achieve a natural effect.
Dr. Chrisman or Dr. Wyse will also cover blemishes, reshape your teeth, and close small gaps at this time. Next, we will harden the material with a curing light. Finally, we will trim any extra composite and polish your teeth so that they have a natural-looking shine.
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a simple treatment, but it can thoroughly enhance your smile. This one procedure alone can treat a whole spectrum of cosmetic concerns. In addition, bonding is affordable, and it will save you the cost of multiple treatments. Finally, bonding does not require any alteration of your teeth.
During your consultation, Dr. Jay Chrisman or Dr. David Wyse will talk about the benefits of dental bonding, as well as your other treatment options.
In contrast, porcelain veneers require a preparatory procedure in which your dentist will trim off some of your dental enamel. One thing to note, however, is that bonding does not last as long as veneers, nor does it have quite the same sparkle.
During your consultation, Dr. Chrisman or Dr. Wyse will talk about the benefits of bonding, as well as your other treatment options. This will enable you to make an informed decision, choosing the procedure that is most appropriate for your goals.
