Patients in the Scottsdale, AZ community unhappy with the appearance of their smile due to imperfections may be unaware of the many cosmetic solutions that are available to help. Dr. Eric Wiitala and his providers work with patients regularly to discuss aesthetic treatment options that are affordable and effective at boosting a patient’s self-confidence. Our practice is committed to offering general, cosmetic, and restorative care for new and existing patients in the community, and welcomes individuals to learn about options available to them such as dental bonding.
What is dental bonding?
Imperfections on the teeth near the front of the smile, called the “anterior teeth,” may impact the overall look of the smile as well as a patient’s self-esteem. These imperfections can be addressed with dental bonding. Dental bonding is a material made of composite resin that can be molded onto a tooth, hardened, and polished to look just like natural tooth enamel. This material is biocompatible, aesthetic, and affordable for many of our patients.
Dental bonding is often used for addressing:
• Gapped teeth
• Unusually shaped teeth
• Chipped/cracked teeth
How is dental bonding completed?
First, patients visit Dr. Eric Wiitala of Scottsdale, AZ to discuss their specific needs and desires in regards to how they want their smile to look. Patients are educated on various treatment options such as porcelain veneers and dental bonding to determine which is best for their specific needs. Once patients have chosen composite resin bonding, they are educated on the process. It begins with preparations, which may include the removal of a thin portion of enamel from the area to ensure the bonding sticks. The bonding is applied, shaped, and hardened using a curing light. To finish, the dentist will file and polish the material until it blends in beautifully with the natural teeth.
