Bonding is a quick and affordable way to repair many cosmetic flaws or injuries. It can yield dramatic results in a single office visit, quickly filling in ugly gaps between teeth and repairing chips and cracks.

Bonding essentially hides any natural flaws through the placement of a thin plastic coating on the front surface of the teeth. Dr. Kneib uses dental bonding to sculpt individual teeth with a special tooth-like material that looks, acts, and feels like the real thing.

After treating the tooth surface, Dr. Kneib applies a putty-like bonding material that is then sculpted and shaped to suit your needs. A high-intensity light causes the plastic to harden, and then the new surface is smoothed and polished.

And, as you can see below, the tooth-colored fillings by Dr. Kneib can substantially improve the beauty of your teeth, too. For individuals who meet the requirements, any of the above mentioned dental procedures can be accomplished in-house during one appointment.

Tooth Restoration FAQs

What are silver-mercury fillings? 

For over 100 years, dentists have been using silver-mercury amalgam fillings to restore decayed or broken teeth. The only other alternative was gold.

At Kneib Dentistry, there is a new and economical way to restore teeth using tooth-colored resin fillings. The resin is made up of glass particles in a plastic matrix. Dr. Kneib bonds the putty-like material to the tooth with a high-intensity light. This hardens the material and allows it to be shaped and polished for immediate use.

Once completed, your tooth has a natural appearance and is actually stronger than before due to the strength of the adhesive agent used to bond the resin to the tooth. Resin restorations not only look better, but they are stronger and longer lasting than the old silver-amalgam fillings. Resin restorations can range from $150 to $350 per tooth.
