Dental Bonding

Grove City Dentist Serving Columbus, Dublin, Hilliard, Ohio

If you have one or more minor smile imperfections that seem to throw off your smile's appearance, you might consider a quick and easy dental bonding treatment. Dr. Raymond Sheridan is a skilled bonding dentist who uses creative sculpting techniques to restore symmetry to each tooth and balance to each patient’s smile.

The Simple Steps of Dental Bonding

One of the draws of dental bonding is that there is no wait for a restoration to be created in a dental lab. The results are instant and only one appointment is needed. Bonding begins as a putty-like material, is set into place using dental instruments, and is then hardened with the application of a safe curing light.

First, Dr. Sheridan will evaluate the tooth and determine what types of changes need to be made to achieve the optimal shape. He will then apply the putty-like bonding material to the tooth and begin to shape it. He may at this point trim excess material and pare it down until it looks perfect. After doing another evaluation of the shape and bite, it is time to set the bonding with our hardening lamp. The bonding will be polished so that it blends in better with the tooth enamel. In just minutes you are left with a natural tooth enhancement that looks as good as new.

Good Candidates for Dental Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile solution that can be used to fix a wide variety of enamel appearance issues. If you have small enamel defects that are mainly cosmetic in nature, bonding might be your best choice.

Patients with small tooth chips or slight shape imperfections may benefit from dental bonding. If you have other issues like enamel cracks, short teeth, rotated teeth, darkened or discolored enamel, and  breaks, you may need a sturdier treatment like porcelain veneers or dental crowns. If you are not sure if your tooth issue qualifies for a bonding repair, you can call or email our team and view before and after images to see how others have improved their smiles.
