Dental Bonding

One of the easiest, least expensive ways to repair minor damage to one of your teeth is with dental bonding in Bend, Oregon. Our dentists, Dr. Chelsea Longlet, Dr. Michael Longlet, and Dr. Eric Alston can use dental bonding to address a number of different tooth problems. We use the latest techniques, including the Bioclear Matrix system, to provide outstanding cosmetic bonding. If you have one or more teeth that could use a boost, call Mill Point Dental at 541-388-0078 today!

Dental bonding is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile. During the bonding process, our skilled dentist and team place a composite resin material directly onto the tooth structure. Because the resin is malleable and putty like when first applied, we can shape and sculpt it to fit your tooth and correct flaws in the tooth’s appearance. The composite resin is then hardened, trimmed and polished to provide a lasting, aesthetic restoration for your smile. Dental bonding typically requires just one visit to our welcoming dental office, and because this treatment usually necessitates little to no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your visit will be quick and comfortable.

Our dentist may recommend dental bonding in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. We will use a shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your teeth for a natural-looking effect. If you would prefer, we can use a slightly lighter shade to whiten the color of your teeth.

As a child, I chipped my two front teeth, which required composites to repair the damage. Over the 30 years since this first happened, I have had to have the composites replaced a few times. While they usually last a long time, my most recent composite didn’t. For some reason, it became discolored and didn’t match the rest of my teeth. I went to see Dr. Mike Longlet and after discussing my options, we decided that a new composite was the way to go. He perfectly matched the color of my teeth with the new composites and gave my teeth the natural shape that was previously lacking. I am in love with my new smile! I am so glad I chose to see Dr. Mike and grateful for the care I received from his entire team!
