Improve Your Smile with Cosmetic Bonding in Novi, MI

You want your teeth to look and feel their best, but dental work can be expensive and time-consuming. My Family Dental in Novi, MI, understands this concern, so we offer dental care to fit your needs and budget. One such solution is cosmetic dental bonding, a restoration technique in which a tooth-like resin is carefully sculpted and secured to the surface of your teeth. The resin creates a strong, durable covering that looks just like your natural tooth enamel.

Cosmetic dental bonding is considered one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures to improve your smile and overall oral health. It can perfect minor flaws like stains, gaps, or decay. In some cases, bonding can serve as an alternative to porcelain veneers or other more invasive procedures. Schedule an appointment to see if cosmetic bonding is right for you.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding vs. Veneers

At My Family Dental in Novi, MI, we want our patients to have the best possible options for their dental care. This is why we offer both dental bonding and veneers as part of our cosmetic and restorative dental service offerings. We start each dental treatment plan with an initial consultation to discuss these options with you. Ultimately, the choice is yours as the restoration you choose depends on your specific needs and your ideal treatment outcome.

Generally, bonding is selected for smaller changes in healthy teeth, while veneers are better for those who need a more substantial change to their smile. Both can achieve similar visual results but differ in the cost and time required. Dental bonding is a quick, simple procedure that requires little to no change to the original tooth. It is typically more affordable than veneers or crowns as it can be done in our office instead of an off-site laboratory.

Veneers are created from a porcelain or composite material matched to the surrounding teeth, making them highly resistant to staining. Depending on the material used, veneers typically last longer than bonding, with the potential of lasting 15-25 years or more. Meanwhile, composite dental bonding may last 5-10 years. As with all dental work, the lifespan of your veneers or bonding depends on your oral health and how well you take care of your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Learn how our cosmetic dental bonding solutions can brighten your smile as we answer common patient questions about this procedure.

Dental bonding involves applying a resin to your teeth to improve their appearance. Made of a special resin, the bonding material can be made into any shape to sculpt your teeth into a beautiful smile. Bonding can restore a more natural, even appearance to your teeth. They can even make your teeth look longer or change their shape, so they fit in better with your surrounding teeth.

While cost-effective, there are some limitations to cosmetic dental bonding. The composite resin used in dental bonding is not as strong as your actual tooth enamel. Bonding is not as strong as the other alternatives, like veneers. If you choose to receive dental bonding to repair a chipped or cracked tooth, it will eventually need to be replaced, typically within 5-10 years.

Like any dental work, how long your cosmetic dental bonding lasts depends on where and how much bonding was done and how well you take care of it. If you bite your nails or chew on ice, pens, or other hard objects, these resin cosmetic bondings may break. You may need to replace them with stronger options, like porcelain veneers, or you will need to replace them sooner.

Dental bonding isn’t just cosmetic, as you can also have it done to correct a variety of oral health concerns. Common reasons our patients choose cosmetic dental bonding include:

  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Lengthening teeth
  • Minor discoloration of the teeth
  • Gum recession
  • Misshapen teeth

Bonding can also serve as a cost-effective alternative to veneers. At your initial consultation, our team will discuss the best option to meet your specific needs.
