What is Teeth Bonding and How Can Rochester Hills, MI Residents Use it to Improve Their Smiles?
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a number of procedures and treatments that can be used to improve and enhance a patient’s smile. From orthodontics to dentures, Dr. John L. Aurelia offers a wide variety of ways to change the way a patient looks and feels about his or her smile. One popular alternative to many of these cosmetic procedures is teeth bonding. Rochester Hill MI residents can use teeth bonding, also known as dental bonding, to make cosmetic alterations to their smile.
Dental bonding uses composite bonding material that is similar to dental putty. This “putty” can be applied to a tooth and shaped by the dentist. Once it is just right over the patient’s tooth, the dentist will then use a specialized ultra violet light to harden the bonding material. After the bonding has been hardened, the dentist can then file, polish, and shape the bonding over the tooth for a beautiful natural appearance.
Dental bonding can be used to address a number of issues, such as:
- Gaps between teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- As a filler for cavities
- Protect tooth roots from decay after gum recession
- Cover severely or permanently stained teeth
Dr. John L. Aurelia offers dental bonding for these situations and others as a fast, easy, and inexpensive way to address smile imperfections. With proper care and maintenance, it can last several years. While there may be other alternatives, such as porcelain veneers, many patients find that dental bonding is a great alternative. This is especially true when used as a temporary solution until the patient has decided on a more permanent cosmetic procedure or treatment. Talking with your dentist is the best way to determine if dental bonding is the best way to tackle your dental needs and concerns.

Aurelia today and schedule a consultation appointment. You will find that his skills and expertise may be just what you need to make those positive changes to your smile–and your life!
