Dental Bonding – A Smile Fixer-Upper

Posted .

We’ve all seen those shows on TV where two guys buy an old, run-down house that looks like it needs to be condemned. Then, almost by magic, they take that house and turn it into a beautiful, livable, expensive home that’s the pride of whatever family gets to own it.

The same thing can be said, at times, for your teeth and your oral health. When your teeth get run-down, you’ll want to be able to restore them so you can have that great smile that’s the envy of everyone in the neighborhood.

One of the ways to do that is to use dental bonding.

What is bonding?
Dental bonding is the process of using a special resin to fix chipped teeth. Dr. Scott Ellard here at Scott Ellard Dentistry in Portage, Michigan will apply the resin to your affected tooth (or teeth) and shape it to match your natural tooth. Once the resin is in place, it’s blasted with a UV light and hardened immediately. Essentially, you’re getting a new smile in as little as one visit.

Do they last?
Dental bondings are made from a durable resin. You do need to avoid activities that could prove harmful to your teeth, however. As long as you take care of them, you’ll have a complete, beautiful smile once again.

Perhaps the best part of dental bonding is that it’s a process that doesn’t hurt one bit! It’s a relatively quick procedure, too. If you’d like to make an appointment, or simply learn more, please call us today at 269-329-1880. We can’t wait to help you!
