For many people with minor chips, cracks, and stains to one or several teeth, living with the imperfections to their smile, rather than investing in what might seem like costly and overwhelming dental repairs, can seem like the better of the two options. And while modern cosmetic dentistry has developed incredibly sophisticated solutions to both simple and complex dental problems, like advanced gum Bondingdisease and tooth loss, the truth is that sometimes a simple, old-fashioned solution is the best option.

Dental Bonding in Riverview

Made from composite resin and designed to match the color and texture of the patient's natural teeth, the dentists at Southshore Dental in Riverview, MI use bonding to repair many common dental problems, including:

  • Tooth decay
  • Chips
  • Fractures
  • Discoloration
  • Gaps/spacing
Caring for teeth after they have been bonded is pretty straightforward. Regular brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleanings are necessary to keep the teeth and gums clean and healthy. Avoiding substances known to cause teeth staining, like tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco is recommended for several days after the procedure, and should be used in moderation to keep the bonded teeth as white as possible throughout the year.

Bonding is an effective and minimally invasive dental procedure that can generally be completed in as little as one visit to a dentist at Southshore Dental. It is one of the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures available, and can help to transform a dull, stained, or crooked smile in as little as an afternoon or weekend.

The typical treatment time for bonding a tooth is 30 to 60 minutes, and less complicated and involved than many regular dental treatments such as getting a cavity filled.
