What is bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that our talented dentists may recommend to effectively and quickly improve the appearance of your smile. Bonding typically requires only one visit to our dental office, and it can be used to correct a wide range of smile flaws and imperfections. The dental bonding process involves applying composite resin material to your natural tooth structure. Dr. Carlton and Dr. Dunlap shape and sculpt the resin to match the shape of your tooth, then harden the resin with a special light. Finally, they polish your tooth for a beautiful, natural-looking effect. Composite resin is a tooth-colored material, so you can feel confident that your smile will look natural and aesthetic. In most cases, teeth bonding in Chicago, Illinois can be finished in one hour or less.
