Composite Bonding With Dr. Shlafer in Farmington Hills, MI

Repair Your Smile Quickly


If you’ve chipped or cracked your tooth, or you’re just looking to enhance the aesthetics of your smile, a cosmetic procedure may be the right choice. At Roman Shlafer, DDS, we offer dental bonding to quickly correct numerous problems, including minor chips, cracks, tooth discoloration, misshapen teeth, and small gaps between your teeth.

Dr. Shlafer recommends cosmetic bonding as a solution to lackluster and damaged teeth because it’s a non-invasive and painless procedure that can be performed in just one visit.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Dental bonding, or tooth bonding, is a cosmetic procedure where a tooth-colored resin material is applied directly to the tooth to fix minor cracks or chips. Once applied it’s hardened and “bonded” to the tooth using a special light.

Dental bonding requires little-to-no reduction of your tooth, is relatively inexpensive, and can often be performed in just one visit to our office. We use premium bonding materials, so the results blend indiscernibly with your natural teeth to create a smile that lasts for years.

The Dental Bonding Procedure

The dental bonding process is performed at our Farmington Hills office. First, a local anesthetic is applied to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. A mild etching solution is also added to permit the bonding material to adhere to your tooth.

Dr. Shlafer then applies the tooth-colored ceramic bonding material and cures it with a high-intensity light. Finally, he shapes and smooths the bonded material. The final result looks remarkably natural.

While it’s normal to feel some tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures following the procedure, there’s no prolonged recovery time following your appointment and you’re able to eat normally.

Frequently Asked Questions

On average, cosmetic bonding will last for five years. Proper maintenance can help prolong the longevity of your bond as they can wear down, chip, and become stained just like natural teeth. Proper maintenance includes brushing twice a day, flossing before bed, and rinsing after meals paired with bi-annual visits with Dr. Shlafer to ensure your oral health is in order.
No—dental bonding doesn’t affect the natural enamel of your teeth. While the material may weaken over time, your natural teeth aren’t at risk when you choose cosmetic bonding as your ideal treatment.
No—bonded teeth cannot be whitened so if you’re looking to whiten your smile, we highly recommend speaking with Dr. Shlafer about having your teeth whitened prior to getting a cosmetic bond.

We offer a variety of cosmetic treatments to help you achieve your dream smile. Just simply call our Farmington Hills office at (248) 781-0040 and one of our team members will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Dental bonding works best for patients looking to repair chips and gaps. It’s a quick, inexpensive, and simple solution to address damaged teeth and restore your smile. Dental veneers are more expensive and work best for patients looking to cover deep stains that can’t be addressed with teeth whitening or have more damage to their teeth.
