If you are hiding your smile because of gaps, chipped, stained, or cracked teeth, you should consider dental bonding from your hometown dentist in Grove City. Bonding is a relatively simple, painless dental procedure where tooth-colored composite resin is applied to the tooth to repair chips and other surface irregularities and improve their appearance. The face of the tooth is etched, and the resin is applied and cured with a UV light or laser. At that stage, Dr. Kottman can adjust the shape and size to match the rest of your teeth as closely as possible.
Bonding is a good option if your teeth are in good shape and only need minor cosmetic improvements. For heavily damaged or stained teeth, porcelain veneers may be a better option. The one downside to bonding is that it can stain, so it's important to follow good oral hygiene practices and schedule regular dental checkups to make sure the bond is intact. As with any other restorative dental work, it’s important to not misuse your teeth, such as chomping on ice cubes or opening bottles.
Scheduling a Dental Bonding Consultation
In most cases, bonding can be completed in one appointment and no anesthesia is required. Bonding is considered a cosmetic procedure, so most dental insurances won’t cover it, but at Pinnacle Dental, we provide upfront cost estimates to help you make a decision. We also accept cash, credit and Care Credit - an option to finance your dental procedure. The care team at Pinnacle Dental will discuss bonding with you and together we can decide if it is the best solution for revitalizing your smile.
