Bonding in Grand Rapids

Tooth Bonding in Grand Rapids, Kentwood, East Grand Rapids, MI

Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth.  In East Grand Rapids, Michigan a dental bonding procedure includes placing a white filling onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling “bonds” with your teeth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.

What is Tooth Bonding in East Grand Rapids Used For?

Tooth bonding can also be used for teeth fillings instead of amalgam fillings. Many patients prefer bonding fillings because the white color is much less noticeable than the silver amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.

How Expensive is Bonding?

Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and usually can be completed in one visit to our East Grand Rapids office. However, bonding can stain and is easier to break than other cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers. If it does break or chip, tell your doctor. The bonding can generally be easily patched or repaired in one visit.
