Dental Bonding in Wilmington, DE

Are you struggling with any of these problems?

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Stains and discolorations
  • Wide spaces and other misalignments
  • Unusually shaped teeth

Tooth-colored materials can be attached (bonded) to a tooth surface to improve the appearance of teeth with any of these issues. Bonding is a conservative method to enhance your smile, where the imperfections are not major ones.

Would you like to eliminate the unsightly gap between your teeth? How about eliminating the chipped, cracked, or stained imperfections on your teeth while still keeping your own tooth? We have the solution, and it can be accomplished in one easy visit to our beautiful office in the Pike Creek area, just a short drive south of Wilmington.

Your tooth may benefit from bonding, a process in which tooth-colored materials are applied, or bonded, to the tooth surface. Intrigued? Read on!

When Is Dental Bonding Appropriate?

If you have chips, cracks, discoloration, wide spaces, short, or unusually shaped teeth, dental bonding might be a great choice for us to consider. We also recommend dental bonding to protect exposed tooth roots caused by gum recessions.

What is the bonding procedure?

Very little advance preparation is needed to prepare the tooth, and the process is so comfortable that anesthesia is often not necessary. Dr. Gladnick is adept at selecting the perfect resin shade for your tooth – no one will ever know that your tooth was bonded!

Now for the bonding process – the surface of the tooth will be slightly roughened to accept a conditioning liquid. This will enable the bonding material to adhere to the tooth. The bonding material is a putty-like substance that Dr. Gladnick molds to the desired shape. The material is then hardened with a halogen light. Finally, Dr. Gladnick will finesse the hardened material to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth’s surface. And here is the best part: Time-to-completion. In most cases, we can complete the bonding process in just an hour or less per tooth.

Advantages of Dental Bonding

Bonding is comfortable, fast, and considerably less costly than other popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. We can usually complete the process in just a single office visit (unless we are treating multiple teeth). Unlike other procedures such as veneers and crowns, very little tooth surface is removed.

Why have Dr. Gladnick do your bonding?

There is no substitute for experience, and Dr. Gladnick has over twenty-five years. In addition, he is among an elite group of dentists who have completed postgraduate training at the Center for Esthetic Excellence. He is also a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Count yourself among the patients who have traveled to our office from Kennett Square, Chadds Ford, Greenville, Centerville, Hockessin, and Wilmington to receive the best dental bonding that the dental profession has to offer.
