Elmhurst Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi has the experience and the expertise to give your confidence a boost with cosmetic dentistry whether you have been thinking about porcelain veneers, orthodontic work, dental implants or one of the least expensive cosmetic dental procedures, bonding.
Your Elmhurst Cosmetic Dentist understands how frustrating chipped, cracked, and stained teeth can be; however, you don’t have to resort to porcelain veneers to give you a beautiful smile.
What is Cosmetic Bonding?
Unlike porcelain veneers, which are permanent, cosmetic dental bonding from your Elmhurst Cosmetic Dentist does not require removal of the enamel on your teeth or the structure of your tooth unless it is being used to fill a cavity. Cosmetic dental bonding is so quick and easy that you can walk in the office with a broken smile and walk out with a confident glow as each tooth takes between 30 and 60 minutes.
Before you can proceed with cosmetic bonding, Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi will check your teeth and gums to make sure you are healthy enough for dental bonding. If you are given the all clear, the tooth or teeth that are to be bonded with be roughened up and coated with a special conditioning liquid that will make the dental bonding material adhere to the tooth or teeth. After the putty like resin has been applied, Dr. Ivan will harden or cure with a laser or UV light. After the tooth or teeth have been hardened, they will be trimmed and polished to match the rest of your smile.
What is Bonding Used For?
- Small Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are too long or too short
- Badly stained teeth
- Tooth colored fillings
