Are you living with minor cosmetic concerns like chipped teeth, tooth discoloration, or gaps between your teeth? Did you know that a simple dental procedure can quickly address these problems? It's called dental bonding, and Dr. Michael can typically complete the procedure during one appointment at our Eagan dental office! Here's what you should know.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

Dental bonding uses the same composite resin material we apply to fill cavities. The material is pliable and easy for Dr. Michael to shape and work with. He can also customize composite resin to blend flawlessly with your tooth, so it's not noticeable and complements your smile.

For example, if you have a chipped tooth, Dr. Michael can apply the composite resin material to your tooth to make it uniform with your smile again. He'll cure it with a special light, which creates durability, and then polish it until it blends with your tooth seamlessly.

Composite resin is a durable material that can serve your smile for many years.

What Problems Can Dental Bonding Fix?

Dental bonding in Eagan can fix several cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Tooth size and shape discrepancies
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth

How Expensive Is Dental Bonding in Eagan MN?

The cost of dental bonding varies with each patient's needs; however, it does tend to be less expensive than porcelain veneers. If you're interested in learning more about dental bonding for your smile, Dr. Michael can perform an evaluation to let you know if bonding is the right treatment for you and how much it would cost.
