Tooth Bonding

If you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged, and can’t or don’t currently wish to have more permanent dental work done (such as veneers), bonding can provide a short-term solution that looks natural and which will temporarily solve the issue while you decide what to do.

Our dental office in Shawnee, Kansas, can provide same day bonding, using a tooth colored resin that can be shaped and polished so that the exposed surface looks and feels natural.

The Process:

Bonding can normally be completed in one visit. The damaged tooth will first be prepared for bonding with a light etching so that the surface can grip the bonding resin firmly. The bonding liquid will be carefully brushed on, and a plastic resin applied and sculpted into the desired shape. Once the resin hardens, it can be trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural shine.

The man advantage of bonding is that it can be used in emergencies to create a quick solution in one visit without extensive prep. You can instantly improve the look and function of a chipped, cracked, discolored, or out of line tooth.

The drawback of bonding is that it is not a permanent solution, and will only last 3-5 years at most before you will have to consider a longer lasting option. Your dentist will discuss the possibilities with you and create a plan for a long-term solution.

If you have need for a quick bonding of a damaged or impaired tooth, call our Shawnee dental office at 913-667-7051 to request an appointment.

We serve patients in Shawnee, Western Shawnee, and Shawnee Mission, as well as Bonner Springs, Olathe, De Soto, Eudora, Edwardsville, Lake Quivera, Merriam, and the surrounding communities.
