Tooth bonding is an easy, affordable treatment that can be used as a catch-all for a variety of tooth problems.
St. Joseph cosmetic dentist Dr. Sven Erickson has been using dental bonding for many years to address a wide array of dental issues. He knows how to get beautiful, natural results by sculpting just a small amount of bonding material to the optimal shape. Dr. Erickson uses only the highest quality bonding material to ensure results that are virtually indistinguishable from your natural tooth structure.
Dental bonding is perfect for fixing those minor tooth imperfections that can tarnish an otherwise beautiful smile. Our patients are often surprised at how much of a difference even one bonded tooth can have on their overall smile appearance. Your bonding procedure can be completed in a single visit, it is one of the least expensive cosmetic dentistry restorations, it is painless, and usually requires no anesthesia.
Dental bonding can address a variety of dental problems, including:
The first step is for our team to evaluate the amount of damage to your tooth and choose a proper bonding shade. Dental bonding is a conservative treatment, which means very little if any of your natural tooth structure will be removed. If slight tooth reduction is required, Dr. Erickson will use a special sanding tool to gently manipulate the tooth as needed. The bonding material is applied as a paste and sculpted to the perfect shape. Dr. Erickson will remove any excess material and use a special light to “cure” or harden the material. Your new tooth is ready within minutes, requiring no downtime.
