Cosmetic bonding is a procedure that can improve the appearance of the front part of your teeth. This procedure reduces discoloration on teeth for a more beautiful smile.
How Does Cosmetic Bonding Work?
Cosmetic bonding can make teeth look longer, wider, and improve color. Dr. Suede would apply a tooth-colored resin material to the affected tooth. Dr. Suede would also use a special light to bind the resin material to the tooth. It is a minimally invasive procedure and usually only takes 30 to 60 minutes for each tooth.
How Long Does Cosmetic Bonding Last?
Cosmetic bonding can last up to 10 years before a touch-up or replacement is needed. Cosmetic bonding will last longer if you take good care of your teeth through brushing, flossing and routine dental cleanings every 6 months. Avoiding chewing fingernails and hard foods can also extend the life of the bonding material.

Are you troubled by chips, cracks, gaps or stains on your teeth? Would you prefer to have straighter teeth but can’t stand the idea of going through a long orthodontic process? Porcelain veneers can correct a wide variety of common aesthetic teeth problems and can be used alone or with other cosmetic or restorative-dentistry procedures.
Dental veneers or porcelain veneers are shells for the teeth. They go on the front of them to improve the appearance of the tooth. The shells are bonded to teeth and the results are a different color, shape, size or length.
How Long Veneers Last
They can last up to 15 years as long as they are properly cared for by brushing and flossing daily and keeping routine dental appointments. Even though porcelain veneers do not stain easily, dentists still recommend staying away from foods and drinks that can stain the teeth.

Braces and retainers help straighten teeth alignment, but they can be a hassle and are often difficult to manage. Clear aligners like Invisalign is a smoother way of straightening your teeth.
What are clear aligners for Invisalign?
Clear aligners are a popular alternative to traditional braces. Dr. Suede at Great Lakes Smiles determines if you’re a good candidate for the clear aligners during a consultation. Dr. Suede will take an impression of your teeth and gums through a digital scanner. This image will then help create an aligner fitted for your teeth and gums.
Your Invisalign aligners or any clear aligners will need changing every two weeks as you gradually progress through the treatment. You must wear your retainers 22 hours a day, and only remove them when you eat.
What Are the Benefits of Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners/Invisalign can have multiple benefits like:
- It is more comfortable than braces
- It is aesthetically appealing
- It is easily removable
- It has a shorter treatment duration.
