Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding Dentist Holland, MI

Have you ever felt self-conscious about a cracked or chipped front tooth? If so, you owe it to yourself to ask Dr. Habecker about cosmetic bonding.

Cosmetic bonding only takes one appointment. This means you get to spend less time in the dentist’s chair. You also won’t need pain relievers unless we need to fill a tooth.

Here’s what else you need to know.

What to Expect

During your appointment, Dr. Habecker will mix a special resin to match the shade of your teeth. Then, he’ll mold and shape the resin to your tooth.

As one of the final steps, Dr. Habecker will use an LED light to harden the resin in place. He’ll also check your bite to ensure the bonded tooth won’t cause any issues with eating and speaking.

The result is a restored tooth that looks and feels natural.

Candidates for Dental Bonding

You may be a candidate for dental bonding if you need to correct small cosmetic issues with your front teeth. Any structural issues will need a filling, crown, or other restorative procedure.

You may be a candidate for dental bonding if you have:

  • A small chip in a front tooth
  • A small crack in a front tooth
  • Misshapen front teeth
  • Small tooth stains
  • Small gaps between front teeth

The only way to know for sure if you’re a candidate for dental bonding is to schedule an appointment. Dr. Habecker would be more than happy to help you better understand your options.

How to Care for Bonded Teeth

Dental bonding can last between three and 10 years as long as you practice good oral hygiene. That’s why it’s important that you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time.

We also recommend that you floss once a day to remove plaque and food particles caught between teeth.

Continue seeing Dr. Habecker for preventive care. During your appointment, Dr. Habecker will examine the condition of your bonded teeth and recommend touch-ups or replacement bonding as needed.

The healthier your teeth, the longer the dental bonding will last.

Dear Patient Family,

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care and we appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to follow orders from the Governor's Office.

We are happy to say that we are opening our office for all patient treatment on June 1st, 2020. Our hours of operation will go back to normal, Monday-Thursday 8am - 5pm. We want you to know that there will be some changes at your next appointment. Please be patient with us as our protocols will inevitably change as new guidelines are released.

  • We ask that you use our parking lot as the waiting room.
  • Please wear a mask when you come into the office and leave it on until entering the treatment room. Homemade is acceptable.
  • Only the person receiving treatment should come in the building, all others will be asked to wait in the car if at all possible. The exception will be for our minor patients who may have one parent accompany them.
  • We will be asking you some questions when you arrive at the office and we will also be taking your temperature.
  • We will not be able to offer magazines, drinks, or toys at this time as they cannot be disinfected to our standards. Eventually this will change and we will be happy to offer our amenities once again.

These changes have been made to adhere to the latest CDC guidelines and for the benefit of our patients and our staff. We want you to know that our office has always taken the safety of our patients very seriously and that we will continue to follow the highest levels of sterilization and disinfection to keep you protected. If you would like more information on what measures we have taken we would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

We cannot say how excited we are to see all of our patients again and to provide for their dental needs. We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces soon!

Dr. Habecker and Team
