Visit your White Bear Lake Dental Office to learn when composite bonding may be appropriate for your smile


Repairing imperfections within the smile is something many patients may need to do when problems arise. This may include issues such as staining, breakage, or even gaps between the teeth. Patients in the White Bear Lake, MN area may want to speak to a cosmetic dentist to discuss the possibilities available for repair including that of composite resin bonding.


Composite resin bonding is a dental solution for disguising problem areas of the smile. This material is like a clay that can be molded to the tooth, shaped, hardened, and then filed and polished to look like natural tooth enamel. The result is a natural-looking tooth that is free from defects. Dr. Joy Johnson takes great pride in offering beautiful results with composite resin bonding.


Another option for patients is that of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic facings made to cover the natural structure of the tooth near the front. They also disguise imperfections though they last longer than composite resin bonding. They are stain resistant and are known to improve the smile for a decade or longer. However, they require more time to complete and are also costlier than composite resin bonding. Patients seeking a fast and economic solution are often interested in composite resin bonding.


Composite resin bonding can be used in a number of ways, and Dr. Joy Johnson and her team can educate patients on the benefits and disadvantages of treatment so they can make a knowledgeable decision in regards to what is right for them.
