Dental bonding in West Bloomfield, Michigan, is a beneficial treatment that can help you in many ways. In fact, it can help you by repairing decayed, chipped, or cracked teeth or by improving the appearance of a discolored or unattractive tooth. If you are interested in this treatment, our skilled team is happy to tell you what you can expect at your appointment! You can expect the following steps:

Step 1: First, your dentist will choose a material that perfectly matches the shade of your smile. Then, he will prepare the surface of the tooth by roughening it. Once it’s roughened, he will apply a conditioning liquid to it.

Step 2: Next, your dentist will apply the tooth-colored, putty-like resin to the tooth. Once it’s applied, he will mold and smooth it into the desired shape.

Step 3: Finally, your dentist will harden the resin with an ultraviolet light. After it has been hardened, he will further trim, shape, and polish it to give it a natural appearance.

Now that you know all about the treatment steps, you’re ready to sit in the dental chair!
