If you are looking for an affordable cosmetic dental restoration procedure, you may want to consider tooth bonding also referred to as dental bonding. This convenient and affordable solution offers patients a quick way to improve a less than perfect smile while giving results that look just like your natural teeth. Dental bonding or tooth bonding in Glenview, Northbrook or Deerfield, works for a number of dental issues including that gap between your front teeth. Dental bonding or tooth bonding in Deerfield also works to repair breaks and chips, cover stains and discoloration and even change the size and shape of your teeth. Tooth bonding or dental bonding in Glenview is a painless procedure that can take as little as a single appointment depending on how much dental bonding you will be having. After dental bonding your teeth will look and feel just like your natural enamel and are strong enough for normal use. However, dental bonding or tooth bonding will not be as sturdy as porcelain veneers.
During your tooth bonding appointment, Dr. Jeffrey Gilmor or Dr. Verena Phillips from Glen Dental in Glenview will determine if you are a good candidate for dental bonding. If you are a good fit, Dr. Gilmor or Dr. Phillips will roughen the surface of the tooth before applying a bonding primer followed by a resin. The composite or resin bonding material will then be sculpted into the desired shape for a natural and seamless fit. Once satisfied with the results, the area will be hardened with a tooth bonding light. Dr. Gilmor and Dr. Phillips are members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and have the expertise to match the bonding material to the color of your enamel. Dr. Gilmor or Dr. Phillips will then complete the dental bonding process by polishing for a sparkling and beautiful result.
