Cosmetic Dental Bonding: A Natural-Looking Solution

If you damage your tooth and are searching for a natural-looking restoration, consider restorative bonding. In this procedure, we apply a tooth-colored resin material to your tooth and shape the resin until it matches your naturally occurring tooth. We then harden it in place with a special dental light, effectively bonding it to the tooth. At Metro Decatur Dental Group PC, we will ensure that, regardless of the type of restoration you receive, your smile will look amazing.

Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Bonding

Can dental cosmetic bonding fix my child’s chipped tooth?

Yes, it can. As a cosmetic dentist, we can restore your child’s chipped tooth by applying resin to their tooth and shaping it until it matches their natural one. Dr. Gary Simms, DDS will use every tool available to match the shade of the resin with the child’s surrounding teeth, so it blends in as best as possible. Other people will most likely not notice a difference between the bonding material and the other teeth. The only thing to note is that if the child’s teeth are still growing, the child may need a revisit in the future.

Will a tooth bonding procedure be uncomfortable?

Not at all. Bonding is a non-invasive procedure and one of the most comfortable restorations you can receive. In order to complete the restoration or to make cosmetic improvements, all we need to do is roughen the tooth slightly and apply a conditioning liquid. Next, we will apply the resin material that matches the shade of your teeth. We will shape the material to match the tooth size as well, before hardening it in place. Since your tooth structure remains intact, you will be comfortable during the procedure. In fact, most people do not need any anesthesia or pain medication for the bonding procedure.

Can Restorative bonding be used to fill gaps in between my teeth?

Yes, it can. When you visit our Decatur dental office, we can close small gaps between your teeth using this simple procedure. The bonding procedure is an alternative to placing veneers or crowns or undergoing an orthodontic procedure. Since we can typically complete cosmetic bonding in one dental visit, it is the fastest way to complete this transformation.

Can it reshape my teeth?

Yes. Bonding is an excellent way to reshape your teeth. We can use it to lengthen your teeth or change their width. By doing so, your teeth can appear more uniform, and we can eliminate the inconsistencies between your teeth. It only takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth, so reshaping is much easier and faster than people may believe.

Will cosmetic bonding help if my teeth are stained?

Yes, if you have stains on your teeth, we can use bonding to cover them. We suggest trying a whitening procedure first since this can improve the appearance of your smile with relative ease. There are times, however, when a whitening procedure is not enough to remove some of the deep or more significant stains. This is where restorative bonding can be particularly useful. We can place the resin material on top of your stained tooth or teeth in order to improve their appearance. When you visit our Georgia dental office (serving DeKalb county), we can discuss your options with you and complete the procedure in as little as one visit.

Is a tooth bonding procedure reversible?

Yes, since we apply bonding without removing the enamel on your teeth, the process is reversible. If you want to change course and restore your teeth or change their appearance with an alternative procedure in the future, you can. While most of our patients are satisfied with the appearance of their teeth after the bonding procedure, some use this as a temporary solution while considering more long-term improvements.

Is dental bonding affordable?

If budget is a concern, dental bonding is an affordable and viable option. Since we place and harden bonding material in our office, there is no need for participation from the dental lab. This makes the process more cost-effective than getting dental veneers or crowns. If you are weighing your options between the three, let us know. We can give you a breakdown of what each procedure will cost. For more information, call 404-292-3133 and schedule a consultation.

How long will it last?

A Restorative bonding procedure is durable, natural-looking, and effective. There is no set timeframe for how long the resin will last. It can last for several decades or several years. Taking care of your teeth will help to increase its longevity. Be sure to brush with a soft or electronic toothbrush, so you do not risk eroding your teeth and your restoration. You need to also avoid eating food that is too acidic, while also avoiding any activities that can break or chip your teeth. While bonding material is strong and durable, it is not as strong as a dental crown can be. If you are looking for a longer lasting restoration, then you may want to consider that option as well.

Overall, dental bonding can be an effective procedure for patients. Your teeth will look both natural and beautiful once we are done. To learn more or to find out if this procedure is right for you, call our Decatur dental office at 404-292-3133.

      As a manager that has worked with Dr.Simms for over 14yrs I value my position as an Office Manager to ensure great customer service and patient education that our patients deserve. When that is not exemplified from my front office staff … More changes must be made. As with any job expectations are required and when it becomes clear that those expectations are ignored then the proper changes are taken to protect the company and our brand! I can ensure you that now that we have made changes to our front office staff you will be greeted with a pleasant smile and a warm welcome as you come through the door. Please feel free to come into our office to experience the changes we have made to ensure a pleasant visit.
