Dental bonding is a process used by some dentists to restore the integrity, shape, and appearance of a decayed, chipped, discolored, or cracked tooth. It’s one of the easiest and most inexpensive cosmetic dental procedures available, and produces great results, which is why so many patients enjoy it.

We’ll take a few minutes today to go over the bonding process and what happens here at Kenneth M. Schweizer, DDS, PA.

Consultation

You’ll first need to come visit Dr. Kenneth Schweizer for a consultation to see if bonding is right for you. For larger problems, crowns or implants are usually a good bet. However, small issues with your teeth are perfect candidates for the bonding procedure.

Resin application

Once you’re cleared for bonding, your tooth is prepared to receive a tooth-colored, putty-like resin. This resin is incredibly malleable, meaning Dr. Kenneth Schweizer can work it until it matches the exact shape and size needed to make your teeth look wonderful again.

Then, the resin is hardened with the use of an ultraviolet light. Afterwards, there may be some further trimming and shaping. The resin is then polished until it matches the rest of your teeth, and you’re done! The process can usually be accomplished in one visit.

Bonding is a great process if you have minor imperfections with your smile and are looking for a quick, effective way to make your smile look brilliant again. If you think you’re a candidate for dental bonding, call us today at 941-926-4888 to schedule an appointment.
