Dental Bonding – Green Bay, WI
A Quick Fix For Big Issues
If you have chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect teeth that need cosmetic restoration, dental bonding in Green Bay may be the perfect solution. This convenient cosmetic procedure is done in just one visit and, although it only lasts 5-10 years, is an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers.

What Is Dental Bonding?
This procedure is fast and easy and is done by “bonding” tooth-colored composite resin to the teeth to mask various flaws. This is the same material we use for fillings on the back teeth, so it’s quite strong. It’s also matched perfectly to the existing shade of your smile, so some of our patients like to whiten beforehand. After the material is applied, we’ll shape it to look very natural so no one will know that you’ve had dental work.
What Kind of Problems Can Direct Bonding Fix?
With decades of experience and advanced cosmetic training, Dr. Quandt has used direct bonding to correct all of the following issues:
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Severe stains that don’t respond well to whitening
- Chips and cracks
- Small gaps between the front teeth
- Repairing small to moderate-sized cavities
Also, as a cosmetic dentist in Green Bay, we want to make sure you love your final results. If you have more severe cosmetic issues that would be better served by other procedures, we’ll recommend an alternative treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?
- Little to no recovery time – Once we’ve hardened the tooth-colored material with a curing light, it’s completely “set,” so you won’t have any recovery time and can eat, drink, and resume your normal activities right away.
- It’s done in just one visit – In most cases, we can complete dental bonding in just 30-60 minutes per tooth.
- You may not need numbing– In many cases, we’re simply adding material to the existing tooth structure, so local anesthetic isn’t needed. If it’s used to repair a cavity, however, we’ll need to numb the area because we’ll start by removing the damaged portion of the tooth.
What Is the Procedure Like?
First, Dr. Quandt will apply a liquid composite resin to your tooth that matches the existing color perfectly. He’ll spend time shaping it to look very natural and will then use a curing light to harden it. Finally, he’ll polish the restoration to make it feel slick and smooth. Then you’ll leave with your beautiful new smile!
