Is Tooth Bonding Right For You? Ask a Prosthodontist

September 27, 2021

A cracked, chipped or discolored tooth or teeth can take a real bite out of your appearance, not to mention your self-confidence. What might be an otherwise attractive smile could lose its charm because of a single blemish. But what to do about it? 

The prosthodontists at the offices of Dental Specialists of Darien offer our patients many options to reclaim their brilliant smiles, including tooth bonding. This simple process is one of the least expensive cosmetic procedures, and can also be used for closing gaps between teeth or changing their shape. Our specially trained dentists apply a color-matched composite resin to the tooth’s surface, mold it into shape, and apply the finishing touches such as polishing to match your other teeth after the resin has hardened. The entire procedure can take as little as 30 minutes, depending on how many teeth are being treated, and usually does not require anesthesia.

Our attentive staff will go above and beyond to ensure that each patient is comfortable during the bonding procedure. Afterward we will thoroughly explain how to care for your bonded teeth immediately following the procedure, and during the days to come. 

Our prosthodontists are specialists who have undergone years of additional training beyond dental school in the intricate procedures used for replacing and restoring teeth. Technology and materials are continually evolving to create better methods, and our staff stays up-to-date so that our patients can be sure they are receiving state-of-the-art treatment at our offices.

If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, or a tooth that’s become discolored, ask the prosthodontists at the offices of Dental Specialists of Darien whether bonding is right for you. We have achieved great success with bonding and many other tooth restoration and replacement procedures. Call our office today for an appointment to learn how we can give you back that winning smile!
