Dental bonding is one of our simplest treatments. It is so simple, in fact, that our dentists can use dental bonding to improve the appearance of your smile in just a single visit to Great Lakes Family Dental. Dental bonding is the use of a restorative material to make changes to the overall size, shape, and color of teeth. Drs. Kinra and Kinra generally suggest dental bonding in Jackson, Michigan, to make small changes and minor corrections, such as closing gaps between teeth or repairing breaks and chips.
The process to complete dental bonding is simple and non-invasive. The only preparation that needs to be done is a light etching of the tooth enamel, which is then coated in bonding liquid. This is all done to ensure the restorative material bonds strongly with your natural tooth structure. Composite resin, a form of plastic that is malleable like putty when first applied, is put onto the tooth and sculpted into the desired shape. Once completed, it is hardened and polished to a natural shine.
