Dental bonding for beautiful teeth in Eagan

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a quick and easy way to correct chipped teeth, gaps in between the teeth, and also to improve on discolored or stained teeth. At Wood Park Dental, dental bonding is being used to naturally cover up any flaws of the teeth by applying a thin layer of composite resin material on the visible surfaces of your teeth and sculpting these layers to conform to the natural shape of the tooth to restore its aesthetic appearance. Dental bonding is a straightforward procedure that requires only a single visit and shows immediate results.

Why should I consider dental bonding?

For patients who are looking to improve the way their teeth look, dental bonding in Eagan is one of the fastest and least expensive methods of achieving this. The composite resin material used in dental bonding can efficiently be shaped to look like the patient’s surrounding teeth. This technique is often used for improving the look of discolored and chipped teeth. It can also eliminate gaps between the teeth, make them look longer, and reshape or recolor teeth as well.

How dental bonding done?

  1. Dr. Skare or Dr. Kangas will select the shade of composite resin that best matches the color of the patients natural teeth
  2. To prepare the indicated tooth for the bonding, it’s surface will be abraded or roughened and then coated with a conditioning liquid that will help improve the bonding
  3. The composite, tooth colored resin is applied onto the surface of the tooth and then molded into the proper shape
  4. The molding restoration will be hardened using a powerful light source
  5. When the bonding material has hardened, it will be trimmed and polished to match the rest of the patient’s teeth

How long would a dental bond take?

A dental appointment procedure takes about 30 minutes to one hour to complete for each tooth.

How do I take care of newly restored teeth?

It is recommended that the patient avoid food that can stain the restorations for the first 48 hours after dental bonding because staining elements in coffee, tea, or cigarettes are able to stain the resin. Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth often will also help keep the restored teeth in good shape for longer.
