Dental Bonding: A Simple Solution for Chips, Cracks, and Discoloration

Dr. Bruce J. Wilderman uses his expertise in cosmetic dentistry, along with an artistic eye, to deliver aesthetic, customized dental bonding results at his Doylestown, PA, office. Bonding is a conservative treatment that can enhance the appearance of chipped, cracked, and discolored teeth. During the procedure, Dr. Wilderman will use dental composite resin to refine the shape and color your teeth, working meticulously to ensure lifelike final results. Every member of our team is an expert at what they do, and can ensure that you will be comfortable, relaxed, and well-informed during treatment. 

Dental Bonding Candidacy

Dental bonding can address a wide range of aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Eroded edges
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Stains, especially internal discoloration
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slight misalignment

Though not intended as a restorative treatment, bonding can strengthen weakened teeth, rebuilding structure with durable, lifelike composite resin. Unlike candidates for porcelain veneers, you will typically qualify for bonding even if you have suffered dental erosion. This procedure is also a good solution to treat stains that do not respond to teeth whitening.

Dental Bonding Steps

Before performing bonding, Dr. Wilderman will choose the right color of composite resin. This material comes in a wide range of shades, and we will ensure a near-perfect match. Dr. Wilderman may then apply a mild chemical solution to the front of your teeth. This solution can gently and safely etch the tooth surface for a stronger bonding area, but will not weaken your tooth or harm your sensitive gum tissue.

Once your tooth is prepared, Dr. Wilderman will apply the composite resin in layers. As he rebuilds and covers your tooth in this material, he will artfully sculpt it so that it looks natural and flatters your smile. To harden the composite, Dr. Wilderman will use a specialized light. Once complete, he will polish your tooth and the resin for a lifelike shine. After your treatment, the composite will have a smooth finish that will match your dental enamel. 

Dental bonding can transform your teeth, giving you a fuller, brighter, and more even smile.

Benefits of Treatment

Dental bonding is conservative, non-invasive, involves virtually no discomfort, and typically requires no anesthesia. Additionally, bonding will not weaken your teeth or affect your future dental health. If you do not like the results of the procedure or want to undergo a different treatment in the future, the procedure can be reversed. Dental bonding is also very affordable. If you want to enhance your smile, but porcelain veneers are out of your budget, bonding could be an effective, alternative solution. 

Finally and most significantly, bonding can have stunning effects. This cosmetic treatment can transform your teeth, giving you a fuller, brighter, and more even smile. You could even look several years younger after your bonding procedure. Along with an improved appearance, you can enjoy an increased sense of self-confidence that can affect nearly every aspect of your life.
