Repair Chips and Stains with Dental Bonding
If you have a chipped, cracked, or discolored tooth, dental bonding is a cost-effective and efficient way to transform your smile. Using composite resin that matches the shade of your other teeth, dental bonding can be completed in just one visit to our Wichita, KS, dental practice. During your consultation, Dr. Byron J. Nordhus will thoroughly examine your teeth to determine if dental bonding can improve the shape, size, or color of your teeth.
What Can Dental Bonding Do?
Dental bonding is a restorative, as well as a cosmetic, dental procedure which helps conceal minor tooth imperfections. Dental bonding can serve many purposes. If you have chipped, stained, cracked, or gapped teeth, this procedure will likely be a good fit for your needs. Dental bonding can help straighten the look of slightly misaligned front teeth, and can also be used to fill small fillings.
Dr. Nordhus can apply bonding to the front surface of teeth to eliminate permanent enamel stains. Patients who have small tooth fractures, due to teeth grinding or minor injuries, may benefit from dental bonding. Additionally, this procedure can help repair misshapen teeth, if they could benefit from additional length or width.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
Composite resin is used for dental bonding; this material is also used for tooth-colored filling procedures. During your dental bonding appointment, Dr. Nordhus will first select a shade of resin that will match seamlessly with your other teeth.
At Nordhus Family Dentistry, you and your family will find caring professionals who have extensive experience in providing comfortable, skilled dental care.
Before placing the resin, Dr. Nordhus will prepare your tooth enamel by applying a gentle etching solution, which promotes a secure bond between the resin and tooth surface.
After placing and shaping the resin, a curing light permanently hardens the material, so that it can endure the daily rigors of biting and chewing. Dental bonding can last five years or more with good dental hygiene practices.

When making the decision to undergo dental bonding, patients should consider the many advantages:
