Dental Bonding


Your teeth are an important feature of your mouth. They play many critical roles, including biting, chewing, and speaking. The teeth are also a major component of a gorgeous, confident smile. The smallest flaws in your teeth can have a huge impact on the appearance of your smile and can cause you to become self-conscious. At Platte Valley Dental Care, we can correct the appearance of your teeth, improving the quality of your smile, with dental bonding.

Are Your Teeth Less Than Perfect?

While minor flaws might not always impact your oral health, they can have a significant impact on the aesthetics of your teeth, and the quality of your smile. Common minor flaws that can affect your appearance include:
•  Small chips or cracks in the enamel.
•  Gaps between your teeth.
•  Minor overlapping that does not impact the health of your mouth.
•  Small or unusually shaped teeth.
•  Discoloration.
•  Small cavities in your visible teeth. These can impact your oral health if they are not treated right away.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment designed to restore the appearance of teeth impacted by minor flaws. Bonding uses a material called composite resin, which is made up of plastic, fine glass, and other materials. Composite resin is a versatile material that can be shaped to meet some different needs, from filling in spaces to providing a natural shape to your teeth. The material is also tooth colored. It provides you with a seamless result, and no one will ever know that treatment has been performed. With dental bonding, we can reshape your teeth, fill gaps, and fill cavities, completely making over the appearance of your smile and restoring your confidence.

A Quick, Simple Procedure for Restoring Your Smile

Dental bonding is a very quick, simple procedure that can generally be completed in less than 30 minutes. It is noninvasive and completely painless. We start by cleaning your teeth. Next, an acid etch is applied to the teeth at the treatment areas. The acid creates a rough texture so that the composite resin will more effectively bond to your teeth. The acid is washed off, and your teeth are dried. We then apply the composite resin and shape it as needed to achieve the desired result. Once this has been accomplished, a specialized light is used to cure, or dry, the composite resin and the material is polished to a smooth, beautiful finish.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

There are many benefits associated with dental bonding. These benefits include:
•  The procedure is completely noninvasive. We do not need to remove any of your natural tooth structure, unlike treatment with veneers and crowns, and no local anesthetics are needed.
•  The procedure is quick, often only taking a half an hour to complete.
•  Composite resin is tooth colored. It provides you with a seamless result. No one will be able to tell that you have had any work done on your teeth.
•  Dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments, costing less than veneers and crowns.

If minor flaws have affected the appearance of your teeth and your smile, dental bonding can help. Call Platte Valley Dental Care today at (816) 219-3133 to schedule your appointment.
