What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Do flaws in your teeth have you hiding your smile? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Kraklow Quality Dentistry is proud to offer cosmetic bonding, an affordable, hassle-free cosmetic dentistry procedure that masks tooth imperfections with instant, dramatic results. A visit to our Milwaukee, WI office will have you in a smile you love before you know it!

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a conservative procedure we use to correct various dental problems when there is little to no decay present. It involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin material to the tooth surfaces to repair imperfections and instantly deliver a perfect smile. Unlike other restorations such as crowns or veneers, cosmetic bonding requires very little preparation and typically takes less than an hour to complete. Moreover, it is much less invasive while delivering similar, if not superior aesthetic results.

How Does Cosmetic Bonding Transform Your Smile?

Cosmetic bonding is an outstanding option used to correct slight imperfections that may be bothering you about your smile. While usually recommended for aesthetic purposes, bonding can also repair damaged teeth, restoring their health, form, and function. Here are some ways we at Kraklow Quality Dentistry utilize cosmetic bonding:

  • Repairing decayed teeth
  • Protecting exposed tooth roots
  • Repairing chipped, broken, cracked, or otherwise damaged teeth
  • Correcting the appearance of misshapen teeth
  • Closing spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Restoring the length, shape, and health of teeth worn from grinding and clenching (bruxism)
  • Masking and whitening discolored teeth that do not respond to traditional teeth whitening treatments

The Cosmetic Bonding Procedure

We will start by selecting a shade of composite resin that closely matches your natural teeth. The procedure involves using a conditioning liquid to roughen the surfaces of your tooth enamel to help the material bond to your teeth. Next is sculpting the resin to the desired shape and using a curing light to harden it. The last step is making any needed adjustments and polishing your restoration until it matches the sheen of your natural tooth surfaces. You’ll love the stunning, natural-looking and feeling results!

Caring for Teeth with Cosmetic Bonding

Make sure to brush your teeth at least twice daily using fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and rinse with an antimicrobial mouthwash. The bonding material can chip just like your natural enamel, so make sure to avoid biting down on hard foods or objects. Don’t forget to visit Kraklow Quality Dentistry for your twice-a-year dental exams and cleanings to allow us to monitor your restorations and ensure your smile stays healthy and bright.
