Dr. Seguin and her team want you to have restored confidence in yourself and your smile. Dental bonding can be the solution that elevates your smile to the next level!

Why dental bonding may be right for you!

Dental bonding is a great solution for correcting several cosmetic dental issues you may be experiencing, such as:

  • Repairing a tooth crack
  • Restoring color to a discolored tooth
  • Closing small gaps between teeth

Dental bonding is an cost effective cosmetic dental procedure when compared to several other expensive procedures such as crowns or veneers. Not only is the price right, but it’s also very time efficient, normally requiring only a single visit taking anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Because it requires no downtime or the use of any local anesthesia, you will be back on your feet and out the door in what seems like no time at all showing off your restored smile.

The dental bonding process

During dental bonding, a composite resin is used that can be shaped and then polished so that it matches the appearance of your surrounding teeth. While dental bonding is typically used in cosmetic dentistry, it can also be used in place of amalgam teeth fillings and to protect tooth roots that have been exposed due to gumline recession. Once Dr. Seguin has examined your dental situation and decided that dental bonding is a viable solution for you, the process is quite simple.

Once the dental bonding treatment has started, composite resin will be selected with the purpose of matching the color of surrounding teeth. Dr. Seguin will then delicately grind down (ever so slightly) the surface of the tooth receiving the dental bonding. The purpose of this is so that a slightly roughened surface is created onto which a conditioning liquid is then applied which is meant to assist in the adhesion of the bonding material.

Once this is completed and the tooth is ready, the resin (think of it as a putty-like material) can then be adhered to the tooth and shaped into an appropriate shape. This resin is then hardened via a UV light. Once the resin has fully hardened, Dr. Seguin can then move to the finishing touches before a polish is applied to the newly bonded tooth. Nobody will ever be able to distinguish this cosmetically altered tooth from surrounding natural teeth.

Your smile is a huge part of who you are and, understandably, you want to show off a beautiful white smile that exudes confidence. Dr. Jill Seguin and her team at Milford Dental Care in Highland, MI want this for you also and she is thrilled to offer this dental bonding solution that is quick, easy and effective. You’ll walk out of her office smiling from ear to ear. Please call (248) 845-4575 today to set up an appointment.
