Do you avoid looking in the mirror because of the chip on your front tooth? Or do you always smile with your lips closed because you are embarrassed by the gap between your teeth? Small dental imperfections can have an outsized negative affect on a person’s happiness and daily quality of life. Fortunately, our team at Michel Dental can help cover up many dental flaws with cosmetic bonding in Topeka & Silver Lake, a minor treatment that delivers major results!
Cosmetic bonding is a quick and easy way to conceal minor imperfections in a person’s smile. The treatment involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to restore damaged or missing enamel. The bonding resin can be sculpted by an experienced dentist to the perfect shape and size before being hardened into place using a special curing light. Often in just one visit to a cosmetic dentist in Topeka & Silver Lake, a patient can walk out with a new and improved smile!
When you come to Michel Dental for cosmetic bonding, we will first discuss with you your smile goals and develop a personalized treatment plan. We will use a shade guide to select the composite resin color that most closely matches the color of your teeth.
When you are ready to proceed with the treatment, we will first prepare your tooth by cleaning it and etching the surface to roughen it. A conditioning liquid will also be lightly coated on the tooth to help ensure the bonding materials stick.
Once the tooth is prepped, we will apply the tooth-colored resin and mold it into the desired shape, covering up any chips or cracks, filling in gaps between teeth or making a tooth a bit longer to match adjacent teeth. The bonding resin will then be hardened using a special ultraviolet light.
Finally, once the bonding material has hardened, we will polish and put the finishing touches on the tooth to make it look perfect!
You if are searching for a simple and cost-effective treatment to fix minor flaws in your smile, you may be a good candidate for dental bonding. Bonding can address all the following dental imperfections:
