Dental Bonding

Many of our patients have small dental blemishes that make them feel uncomfortable or embarrassed. At Chagrin Highlands Dental Group, we want all of our patients to have a bright, beautiful smile they can be proud of! If your teeth are cracked, chipped, or stained, we can use dental bonding to fix minor imperfections and improve the appearance of your teeth and gums.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a way of restoring the appearance of chipped, cracked, discolored, or crooked teeth. The bonding material is made from a strong synthetic resin that is tinted to match the color of your teeth. It can be easily molded, adjusted, and polished to improve the appearance of your smile. Because bonding is so quick and cost-efficient, it is one of our most popular cosmetic treatments.

What is Bonding Used to Treat?

We use dental bonding to treat a variety of minor cosmetic issues and blemishes. Because the bonding resin is attached to the front of your teeth, we can use it to change the shape, color, and general appearance of your teeth.

Bonding is often used to treat:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Irregularly-shaped teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Minor misalignment
  • Small gaps between teeth

What is the Bonding Process?

Bonding is a quick and simple treatment. To begin, Dr. Desatnik will add a slight texture to the surface of your tooth. This will help the resin bond to your tooth and stay in place. After your tooth is ready, he will apply the resin to the surface of your tooth and carefully shape it.

Once the resin hardens, he will make a few final changes and polish the bonding. This will beautifully blend it in with the rest of your smile. Because this process is so simple, we can finish your treatment in as little as one hour!

Bonding is a painless, minimally-invasive procedure. However, for those who are uncomfortable with dental procedures, we are happy to offer several relaxing sedation options.

To keep your bonding in good shape, do not eat or chew hard substances like ice. Avoid smoking and drinking dark beverages like coffee and wine to prevent staining.
