Dr. Vacek and Dr. Gufford are skilled at reshaping or rebuilding a tooth with cosmetic bonding. This is a relatively quick and simple treatment that can correct the slightest flaw, so you have a smile that truly is a work of perfection.

Cosmetic bonding is one of the fastest cosmetic dentistry procedures that we perform at Vacek Family Dentistry, but it can also be one of the more impactful. Our dentists can use cosmetic bonding to repair a tooth that has a chip, crack, or permanent stain. In addition, the same material can be used to enlarge a tooth that is too small or close up a gap between two teeth.

Cosmetic Bonding for You

Actually you may already have some cosmetic bonding material in your mouth and not even realize it. If you have a tooth-colored filling, then we used composite resin, the same substance used to rebuild teeth during a cosmetic bonding procedure. Using composite resin, Dr. Vacek or Dr. Gufford can hide a chip or crack, rebuild a broken tooth or conceal stains without having to prep and alter any natural tooth structure. And because composite resin is strong enough to withstand the pressure of biting and chewing that is typically required of a tooth-colored filling, you can be sure this same material is sufficient for a cosmetic repair on one of your teeth.

Steps to Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding almost never requires a local anesthesia, so we can get right to work repairing your tooth and enhancing your smile. A small amount of composite resin is placed on the tooth and artfully molded and smoothed. This layer is quickly dried with a curing light, and then another layer can be applied until the optimal shape for your tooth is reached. Finally, the material is filed into the perfect shape and polished to match the sheen of your other teeth.

If your smile has a minor imperfection that is annoying you, then don’t put up with it… get rid of it with cosmetic bonding. There’s no reason to settle for a smile that is less than you want it to be when cosmetic bonding can provide a quick, easy and affordable fix.
