Need dental bondings from your Brookfield, WI, dentist?

Have you ever felt self-conscious about any chips in your smile? Well, worry no more. Dentistry has come far in terms of restoring broken Smileand/or decayed teeth to a fuller, more beautiful, and functional smile. Dr. Terence Geary and Dr. Mary Eileen Geary can help you feel confident with dental bonding.


More About Dental Bondings

Bondings are tooth-colored materials that replace missing teeth and/or hide unappealing dental defects like chips, discoloration, and minor-spacing irregularities. The material bondings are made of is composite resins that consists of plastic and glass, which strengthens teeth by fusing with the rest of the tooth.

One of the many advantages of composite resin is its wide variety of tooth shades. When the procedures is done by your Brookfield dentist, it may be impossible to distinguish the bonded tooth from natural teeth.


Dental Bonding Candidates

Dental bondings don't last as long as some other procedures, like veneers, but this restoration is a particularly good solution for teens because they still need to wait for their teeth to fully mature.


The Bonding Process

Tooth bonding is usually accomplished in one visit at your dentist's Brookfield dental office. The procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour.

  1. Your dentist first cleans the surface of your teeth to remove plaque.
  2. The surface is then etched with an acidic gel to that open dental pores.
  3. The gel is rinsed and liquid composite resin matching your natural tooth color is applied to fill the pores.
  4. A special curing hardens the bonding material.
  5. The dentist repeats the process of applying composite resin and then hardening it with a curing light.
  6. The bonding material is shaped and your teeth polished.


Caring for Bonded Teeth

Make sure you brush and floss daily to prevent plaque buildup and its calcification into tartar. Going to your dentist twice a year for regular checkups and professional cleanings is a good preventative measure that will save you time and money in the future. Imagine only needing a simple filling instead during one of your regular visits as oppose to hearing the dreadful news of needing a root canal.
