Cosmetic Treatments with Livonia Family Dentist Dr. DeCapite

Dr. DeCapite can now give you the smile you want, using advanced restorative procedures to give you a brighter and more even smile. That includes working with teeth whitening, bonding, and porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, cracked, chipped, and/or uneven.

Bonding

Bonding is an alternative to veneers, and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged.

How does it work?

The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.

Considerations

The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before need of repair.
