Our Grand Rapids dentists may also suggest bonding as an option for patients with teeth that are damaged, discolored or have spaces between them. With bonding, tooth-colored restorations are applied or bonded to the tooth’s surface. Bonding can usually be completed in one dental appointment.
By bonding tooth-colored restorations to your tooth's surface, our Grand Rapids dentist can effectively repair or restore the shape and feel of your teeth, especially in cases where your teeth are chipped, broken, cracked or stained or if there are uneven or large gaps between your teeth.
In addition to bonding, there are a variety of procedures available today to boost your smile and your overall confidence. For example, enamel shaping remains a popular method for modifying teeth to improve their appearance by removing or contouring enamel. This process, which often is combined with bonding, usually is quick and comfortable and the results can be seen immediately. Other options include the straightening power of Invisalign, a type of invisible orthodontic therapy. Many adult patients prefer Invisalign treatments as opposed to traditional orthodontic brackets.
