Cosmetic Bonding

A dentist must possess exceptional artistic skill to create beautiful, natural results with cosmetic bonding. Dr. Paul Nielson and Dr. Tim Schmidt have extensive training and experience using cosmetic bonding to enhance and repair many smile problems. Below are some actual examples of cosmetic bonding performed by Dr. Nielson and Dr. Schmidt.

About Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding introduction

 

SMILE MAKEOVER WITH COSMETIC BONDING:

PATIENT HISTORY: Andrea was referred to Dr. Nielson by a local pediatric dentist. She had chipped her front teeth when she was a child and had received bonding many years ago that she was never pleased with. She desired a conservative, inexpensive solution to restore her smile to her previous, youthful appearance.

TREATMENT: Direct cosmetic bonding was placed over 10 of Andrea’s teeth to completely rejuvenate her smile. Very little to no drilling was necessary.

MASKING DISCOLORATIONS WITH COSMETIC BONDING:

PATIENT HISTORY: Dawn was referred by her coworker Kate. She had lived her whole life with people telling her she had something on her front teeth. She never knew how easily she could remove the hereditary staining.

TREATMENT: Only the discolored portions of her front teeth were recontoured and covered with a thin layer of cosmetic bonding.

CLOSING GAPS WITH COSMETIC BONDING:

PATIENT HISTORY: Carmen was referred to Dr. Nielson by a local orthodontist. Due to her bite, braces could not be used to close the gap. She desired a conservative, inexpensive solution to enhance her pretty smile.

TREATMENT: Cosmetic bonding material was placing on the side of each middle tooth to close the gap between her front teeth.

FIXING CHIPPED TEETH WITH COSMETIC BONDING:

PATIENT HISTORY: Isabel fell at the playground and chipped her front tooth. Her tooth was not loose and did not need a root canal. Due to Isabel’s young age and strong remaining tooth structure, repairing her tooth with cosmetic bonding was the best choice.

TREATMENT: Using a special layering technique with many shades and translucencies of materials, Dr. Nielson was able to recreate the broken portion of Isabel’s tooth.
