Dental Bonding

Cover Minor Imperfections with Dental Bonding.

Having the perfect smile is important for almost everyone, and we know how hard you work to ensure your teeth and gums are in good shape. That’s why we offer dental bonding at Peak Dental Arts. Dental bonding is a fast, easy way to fix chipped, cracked, misarranged, or discolored teeth. It can be used as an alternative to veneers if veneers are not a good option for you.

The Dental Bonding Process at Peak Dental Arts

The dental bonding process is easy, fast and affordable. Because of the simplicity of the process, we can even bond multiple teeth in one appointment. 

  • Dr. Lanik will use a shade guide to select the resin material that most likely matches the color of your natural teeth.
  • He will slightly roughen your tooth and apply a composite resin to your tooth as the bonding. Then, he will shape the resin and harden it with UV light. Once your tooth is polished it will look just like your natural teeth.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

If you have teeth that are cracked or discolored and you want to get them looking new again, Dr. Lanik may recommend dental bonding as part of your treatment plan. Dental bonding:

  • Is reversible unlike other dental treatments like veneers
  • Can change the shape, size, and color of your teeth
  • Can close small gaps and spaces between the teeth

Although dental bonding is mostly used to make cosmetic changes to the teeth, the resin used is the same one that is used in restorative dentistry to fill cavities and protect teeth roots. Dental bonding has a variety of purposes, including concealing chips in the teeth, making the teeth look longer, and camouflaging tooth discoloration. 

How to Care for Your Dental Bonding

You can practice your regular oral hygiene after the procedure is complete. Along with brushing and flossing daily, you should also visit Peak Dental Arts twice a year for your routine dental exams and cleanings. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Bonding

Resin does not resist stains as much as porcelain veneers. This means you need to be careful when drinking certain things like coffee and wine. Bonding materials like resin can also chip over time. Dental bonding is best for making minor cosmetic changes. Dr. Lanik will talk with you to determine if dental bonding is right for you.

While dental bonding has many benefits, it is not a permanent solution to minor cosmetic problems. Because bonding is made of resin material, it can become discolored by beverages like coffee or soda or chipped by chewing on hard foods. But, because bonding is fast and affordable, it’s an easy procedure to repeat when needed.
