There may be small defects in your smile that make you self-conscious about showing it off. It may be a small chip or a gap between your teeth that makes you feel uncomfortable about the way you look. In these situations, Dr. Ellen Rudolph Jarvis and William I. Rudolph will use a simple cosmetic bond to give you the beautiful smile you deserve. At Rudolph Family Dentistry, we can use cosmetic bonding to fix a variety of issues, including:

  • Repairing teeth with chips or cracks
  • Covering discolorations in teeth
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Changing the shape of teeth, including making them longer
  • As a cosmetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings

The procedure for dental bonding in Columbus, Indiana, is a simple one that involves little preparation. Dr. Ellen Rudolph Jarvis and William I. Rudolph will slightly roughen the tooth and apply a specialized liquid that helps the adhesion of the composite bond. Then, the dentist will apply the bonding material, mold, and smooth the material to the desired shape. A specialized light will be used to cure the bond, and Dr. Ellen Rudolph Jarvis and William I. Rudolph will polish the material to correspond with the rest of your smile. Because the material is color matched to your natural tooth color, the cosmetic bond and the natural tooth will be virtually indistinguishable.
