Dr. Friedstat offers his patients dental bonding, a man-made composite white colored filling material designed for cosmetic dentistry in his Skokie dental office.
Dr. Friedstat will sculpt and shape the dental bonding material to the cosmetic
and functional results you desire.
What are the indications for dental bonding?
Dental bonding is used to restore front and back teeth. It is indicated to:
improve the cosmetic results for patients by changing the color of teeth
changing the shape of teeth
repairing chips in teeth
closing gaps between teeth
replace silver fillings (amalgam) for a more cosmetic look
restore teeth due to decay
cover exposed root surfaces due to gum recession
What is the procedure for dental bonding?
Dr. Friedstat, the premier cosmetic dentist in Skokie, will work with you to select the right color for your bonding material. Dr. Friedstat can match the color of your natural teeth or select a color that is whiter and brighter to improve the cosmetic dental results. He will apply this bonding material to the tooth and shape it to the desired cosmetic shape. He will use a light to activate and harden the material and then polish the final surface.
Dental whitening is recommended prior to dental bonding to ensure that the color selected will match the new overall color of your whitened smile.
How long does dental bonding last?
A patient can expect that dental bonding will last from 3 to 10 years. Trauma, excessive wear due to clenching, grinding or malocclusion or poor oral hygiene can all decrease the longevity of the dental bonding material. Also, the bonding material may stain or discolor due to smoking, drinking coffee and tea to name a few.
