composite bonding patient

If you have chipped, worn, eroded, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect teeth that need cosmetic treatment, we may suggest composite bonding as the restorative material for your smile enhancement. Composite bonding, or composite resin, is applied to your teeth, typically with minimal or no tooth removal, to blend with your tooth’s color, to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. If the color of your teeth is unpleasing, the Composite Bonding can also be used to improve the color. The bonding is artistically sculpted and polished to create the desired restoration, in just one visit. That’s right, in one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile!

Our own Dr. Buddy Mopper is a pioneer in the use of cosmetic bonding for improving the smiles of both children and adults. Dr. Hartlieb lectures internationally to dentists on the materials and techniques they have developed to help other patients enjoy the same benefits of composite resin as the patients of Chicago Beautiful Smiles have enjoyed for years.

If you have chipped worn, eroded, crooked or unsightly teeth that need esthetic improvement, consider Cosmetic Bonding as an option to create a beautiful and healthy appearing smile. Take advantage of this incredible minimally invasive, same day, esthetic make over opportunity to change your smile, change your style, and change your life!

The Art of Composite Bonding

If you are suffering from chipped, worn or discolored teeth, bonding can help improve your smile. This method is one of the easiest in the dental field and can be performed in the comfort of our offices. The use of resin can improve the coloration of your teeth, as well as fix any problem areas you have. This minimally invasive procedure has been used by numerous people and is often considered one of the most affordable methods of cosmetic dentistry.

Preparing for the Procedure

Unless you are suffering from tooth decay, there isn’t much preparation needed for the bonding process. In most cases, anesthesia isn’t necessary. Your dentist will choose the shade of resin that best matches your teeth. He will then coat your teeth with a liquid that helps the bonding material adhere to your teeth properly. Once that is finished, it’s time for the bonding itself.

The Bonding Process

Our team of dentists have mastered the art of composite bonding. The procedure itself takes minimal time as we apply the color-matched resin to your teeth. Once applied, the shaping process begins. After the perfect shape is found, we will then harden the material. Once the resin is properly hardened, more shaping and trimming will take place to complete the process. You will find yourself with a new smile you will be proud to show off.
