Find out if this simple cosmetic dental treatment is the treatment your smile has been bonding

Are you dealing with minor chips or cracks in your teeth that make you feel a little self-conscious about your smile? Is there a small but noticeable discoloration or gap between your front teeth? If you have minimal cosmetic flaws in your smile they may still feel rather significant to you. After all, a smile is one of the most noticeable features you have. Find out how dental bonding from our Carpentersville, IL, dentist, Dr. Dan Adamo can help your smile.

What is dental bonding?

This cosmetic treatment can help reshape one or more of your teeth. During dental bonding, our Carpentersville cosmetic dentist uses a tooth-colored resin to cover over minor flaws in one or more teeth.

The resin is moldable so that it can easily be shaped over these problem areas to mask them completely. Not only that but before the resin is applied we will go through a shade guide to find the color of resin that will most closely match the tooth. No one will be able to tell which tooth has been treated with dental bonding.

What can’t dental bonding do?

Dental bonding is a great option for people looking to make minimal tweaks to their smiles; however, it’s not meant for more severe cosmetic issues. Remember that this procedure is the least expensive and least invasive option you can get to improve the shape, size or color of one or more teeth, so it won’t be able to tackle more serious flaws.

Bonding is a great option for those patients who want to hide minor discolorations, gaps between teeth, chips and cracks, or to lengthen a tooth.

Randall Oaks Dental in Carpentersville, IL, is here to meet all of your smile needs. Whether you are only looking for subtle cosmetic changes or a full-blown makeover, we can provide you with the individualized dental care you need to enjoy your smile again.
