How dental bonding can restore your smile

If you are unsatisfied with your smile, it’s time to change it! You don’t have to live with a less-than-perfect smile, with teeth that are dental bondingcracked, chipped or worn down from aging. You may have damage from using your teeth as tools, biting your fingernails, or opening packages. It’s time to restore your smile to greatness with dental bonding! Dr. Russell Forrest, your Topeka, Kansas family dentist, wants to help you discover how dental bonding can repair those small chips and cracks, to restore your smile.

Dental bonding is just as much an art as it is a dental treatment. Composite, a liquid resin material is used for your dental bonding and Dr. Forrest will sculpt and shape the composite to perfectly match your teeth. The result will be a seamlessly beautiful, totally natural-looking smile.

Dr. Forrest wants you to know dental bonding doesn’t just repair small chips and cracks. Bonding is a versatile treatment and can fix many cosmetic dental issues such as teeth that are:

  • Unevenly worn or chipped from aging and overuse
  • Slightly overlapped or spaced apart
  • Deeply discolored from medications like tetracycline

Your dental bonding treatment begins with Dr. Forrest using an etching solution to create small indentations in your tooth, for retention of the composite material. In most cases, you won’t even need to be numb, because dental bonding is a non-invasive procedure.

Then Dr. Forrest uses a bonding cement to fuse the composite to your tooth. He will sculpt and shape the composite to create a natural look and harden the composite with a high-tech ultraviolet light. As a final step, he will polish your composite bonding to perfection.

If you have small chips, cracks or other damage, or your teeth are showing their age, it’s time to think about dental bonding with composite. You need a skilled dental artist like Dr. Russell Forrest in Topeka, Kansas to repair and restore your smile. Call today and get the smile you deserve!
