WINSTON SALEM DENTAL BONDING
WHY CHOOSE DENTAL BONDING
If you have cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth, you might be a good candidate for dental bonding. In addition to repairing the look of teeth, dental bonds are also useful in helping to reduce the look of gaps between teeth when there isn’t enough space for a bridge, new crown, or the need for braces. Because composite bonding can be shaped and made to look like any tooth, they are suitable for almost every patient who wants to improve the look of their teeth. You can discuss your options for dental bonding with your dentist.

HOW TO CARE FOR DENTAL BONDING
While composite bonding not permanent, they can last a very long time with the proper care. Over time, composite bonding may become stained because of the food and beverages you consume. For example, if you drink a lot of coffee or red wine, your bonding could become stained. If you don't brush your teeth on a regular basis, the bonding can develop a build-up of infection-causing bacteria that could be harmful to your oral health. If you notice that some bonding has come off of the surface of your teeth, contact your dentist right away. If you discover a crack or chip in the bonding, reach out to your dental office to have it repaired as soon as possible. If you take care of your composite bonding, you can expect it to last upwards of 10 years. While they don't last as long as veneers or crowns, composite bonding is a very economical way to improve the look of your teeth for an extended period without the hassle of having to undergo multiple dental visits.
OTHER THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT BONDING
The most important thing to remember about dental bonding is that it is not a permanent solution for cracked or chipped teeth. Over time, no matter how well you care for your dental bonds, they will begin to wear away or become discolored. Taking good care of them will certainly increase the longevity of them, but you should expect to have your dental bonds touched up or replaced about every 5 to 10 years. If you are looking for a more permanent solution, you might consider veneers or even crowns as a way to improve the look of your teeth. Either way, you’ll love the look of your teeth after having procedures done to restore the look and function of them. Whether you choose bonding, veneers, or crowns, improving the look of your smile is a worthwhile investment.
I have been a patient of this practice for several years and cannot say enough great things! Though I typically see Dr. Spangler, all three doctors are extremely knowledgable, thorough and attentive to detail. The staff as a whole combines professionalism with genuine concern for the patient to provide individualized care. Scheduling or being seen in a timely manner has never been an issue as the administrative staff members are kind, caring and extremely helpful! I recommend this office to all of my friends-- my family members are already patients 🙂
My daughters and I went for a new client appointment today and were thrilled with their staff and level of service provided. Would highly recommend their office to anyone looking for top quality dental service.
Absolutely fantastic dental practice - I have been a patient of Dr. Leal's for years and have received top notch dental care. The business side of the practice is great too. I could not be more pleased with my total care - dentists, hygienists and office staff. They genuinely care about me, are very respectful and have always run on time for my appointments.
