Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that we offer at Kuffel Dental. During this procedure, a tooth-colored resin material is applied and bonded to existing teeth. Bonding is most often used for cosmetic purposes, but it can also be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer, or to change the shape or color of teeth. Dental bonding in Brookfield, WI can even be used as an alternative to metal fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed because of gum recession.
Brookfield, WI Dental Bonding Procedure
The dental bonding procedure we offer at Kuffel Dental typically takes between 30 minutes and one hour to complete. First, Dr. Joseph Kuffel, our Brookfield, WI dentist, will determine the match the resin to your original tooth color so it appears completely natural. Then, using microabrasion technology, Dr. Kuffel will lightly scuff the surface of the tooth. This is done so that the bonding material will adhere to the enamel. After molding the bonding material onto the tooth and securing it in place, Dr. Kuffel, our dentist in Brookfield, WI, will gently clean and shine the area to ensure a natural finish.
With proper upkeep, dental bonding can last for many years. Proper upkeep includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and maintaining a healthy diet. Contact us today to learn more about dental bonding in Brookfield.
