Composite Bonding

Modern dentistry offers several ways to restore decayed and broken teeth in an aesthetically pleasing way. One of the most affordable and simplest ways of doing this is with the use of composite tooth bonding.

Composite bonding involves the use of a tooth-colored resin to replace a decayed or missing tooth structure and mask cosmetic imperfections such as discolorations, chips and uneven spaces. The bonding resin is made of a mixture of plastic and glass, adding translucency and strength to your restored teeth.

Bonding is a simple process that can be completed within a single visit to our office in as less as half an hour. The procedure begins by applying a dental etching gel to the surface of the tooth to be bonded. The etching gel is then rinsed off and a composite resin whose shade matches with the natural shade of your teeth is painted on to the tooth in layers. Each layer is dried using a dental curing light before painting on the next one. Once the desired thickness has been achieved with several layers, the bonding material is shaped and buffed to give it a natural look and a final polish is done to finish off the procedure.

Teeth that have undergone the bonding process can be cared for just like your natural teeth by regular brushing, flossing and biannual dental cleanings at our office. It is important to understand that bonded teeth are more prone to staining, so one should avoid the consumption of tobacco, coffee, tea, wine etc. Also, if you wish to undergo teeth whitening, it is recommended to do it before your bonding procedure. One should also avoid biting or chewing on hard objects such as pens, ice etc.

Our Happy Customers

"Very clean and modern facility. Very professional dental staff."

Steven Steven

"I have been going to Village Dental for two years now, and have even maintained my appointments after moving from Elk Grove Village into downtown Chicago because of the great treatment here. I enjoy knowing that I will see the same great hygienist, Diane, each time I'm there, and the appointments/reminders system is exceptionally helpful. I even got a "Thank you" text message after my visit today, which was exceptionally nice. I highly recommend this office."
