Kellogg Dental offers dental bonding as an amazing, fast, simple, and inexpensive way to repair any decayed, chipped, discolored, or fractured teeth. A composite resin is shaped and polished to match your teeth’s natural color. The best part is that it can typically be done in just one visit! The entire bonding process usually takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour but, if you are having more than one tooth bonded, you may need multiple appointments.
Bonding is a great way to change the shape and size of your teeth, as well as give you the smile you always wanted in a short amount of time. Your Kellogg Dental team will help select the composite resin color that most closely matches the natural color of your teeth. Then, they will painlessly condition the surface of your tooth and lightly coat it with a liquid to bond the filling to the tooth. Your Kellogg Dental dentist will mold the material until it is the proper shape and size, and cure it with a light. After the bonding resin is hardened, we will put the final polish on it to match the rest of your tooth’s natural shine. Viola!
Any bonding resin or fillings can be stained by tea, coffee, wine, and other substances so it’s best to avoid consuming any food or drink that can stain your teeth. Regular cleanings are important to remove these stains early and to determine if your bonding needs a touch up. Your dental bonding can last many years, however, it is not as strong as your natural teeth. If it does break or chip, call Kellogg Dental right away so we can repair and rejuvenate your smile.
