The Benefits of Tooth Bonding

Have you been feeling self-aware of the appearance of your smile? If you have teeth that are stained, have a gap or are broken or chipped, you may avoid sharing your smile. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Tom Trinker can help you restore your natural smile so that you can enjoy oral health and confidence. Composite dental bonding is a minimally invasive cosmetic dental procedure that corrects minor inconsistencies in your smile.
Composite dental bonding can help to correct a variety of dental concerns. Bonding can cover tooth gaps, repair chips or cracks and cover tooth discloration. Bonding can is designed to last from anywhere to 3-10 years and can be repaired and adjusted over time.

Dr. Tinkner will meet with you in a one-on-one consultation to speak to you about your cosmetic treatment goals and to analyze your oral health. Dental bonding can improve the overall look of your smile as well as your dental health. You and the Dr. Trinker will build a treatment plan and determine how to best use dental bonding to improve the aesthetics and health of your smile. Dr. Trinker will color match your bonding to your natural teeth for a seamless appearance. With the use of modern dental materials, dental bondings are virtually indistinguishable from your existing teeth.

Dr. Trinkner will prepare the tooth by roughening the surface. This rough surface will allow the bonding to make a secure and durable bond to the tooth for long-term results. Composite dental bonding causes little to no discomfort. Once the tooth has been prepared, the dentist molds the resin material to your tooth. The resin will harden into place once Dr. Trinker has shaped it appropriately. On average the entire dental bonding procedure is about an hour long.
