Do you have stained, worn-down, or misshapen teeth? Do you wish to improve the appearance of your smile? Ask Dr. Karey about dental bonding in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dental bonding is a process by which our dentists apply a tooth-colored material to your teeth and then bond it in place to improve the appearance of your smile. Our dentists may perform dental bonding to do the following:
- Fill cavities
- Repair, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Improve the beauty of stained teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Lengthen teeth
- Change the shape of misshaped teeth
- Protect tooth roots that have been exposed because of receding gums
To prepare a tooth for dental bonding, our dentists will select a shade of composite resin materials that will match the color of your tooth. The tooth surface will be roughened and a conditioning liquid will be applied, both of which help the bonding process. Our dentists then apply, mold, and smooth the composite resin material on your tooth. A curing light or laser is used to cure the material. Our dentists will trim, shape, and polish the result.
