March 26, 2018

Do you have annoying dental imperfections such as discoloration and gaps between your teeth? Dental bonding may be just what you need! Distinctive Dental Care offers high-quality dental bonding. It can be as easy as just one visit with our dentists. If you are considering a dental bonding treatment, then read on to learn three the answers to three important questions about dental bonding.

1. Why do you need dental bonding?

If you have any of the following, then dental bonding is for you:

  • Discoloration
  • Cavities
  • Gaps
  • Cracks and chips
  • Misshapen or uneven teeth
  • Gum recession

2. Who qualifies for dental bonding?

Like any dental or medical treatment, there are risks and advantages. Chipping of the tooth is most common when bonding is done on the back teeth than on front teeth. Dental bonding is the perfect momentary solution. You will eventually need to invest in a more permanent and lasting solution such as a crown or veneer treatment.

3. How is dental bonding done?

For your first visit with Distinctive Dental Care, your dentist will elaborate on your procedure and discuss any questions you may have. After examining your teeth and gums, your dentist will then roughen up your teeth and apply a conditioning fluid. This will ensure the surface of your tooth and the bonding material stick together. Your dentist will then add several layers of the bonding material substance to your teeth until it is the perfect shape and size. They will then use a high-intensity light to harden the substance and bond it to your teeth.

Dental bonding is the perfect and cost-effective way to achieve a beautiful new smile. Contact Distinctive Dental Care in Oswego & Villa Park, IL today to schedule your next appointment.
