COSMETIC DENTAL BONDING

Dental bonding is a quick and easy way to enhance or change the look of your smile. It is a painless procedure that involves crafting new teeth using existing teeth and composite resin. It's an excellent option for fixing minor issues related to the integrity of teeth, such as cracks, chips, and discoloration. It doesn't change the makeup of the tooth. Instead, it helps to restore the natural look and function of the tooth in one dental visit.

WHAT IS COMPOSITE DENTAL BONDING?

Composite bonding is the process that is used to adhere resin or high strength plastic to an existing tooth. The "bonding" refers to the adherence of resin to the existing tooth. This bonding is powerful and creates an almost permanent adhesion. While composite bonding is not as permanent as a dental veneer or dental crown, it is an economical and easy way to restore the look of patient's teeth. There is no need to remove any portion of a tooth before applying the composite bonding agent to the tooth. There's also no need to reduce the size of the tooth like there is with veneers, dental crowns, or even bridges. It is the fastest and easiest way to get a better-looking tooth without a lot of delay and cost.

BONDING AND SEALANTS ARE SAFE FOR CHILDREN

Bonding or sealants are an effective way to protect children’s teeth while they grow. Children often have bonding placed on their teeth to prevent the spread of cavities or decay while they wait for their permanent teeth to erupt (break through the gums). Most children don’t even know they have had bonding placed on their teeth during a dental visit because it is a quick and painless process. It can be done during a regular exam and following a thorough cleaning of the teeth surface.

THE PROCEDURE FOR DENTAL BONDING

When you meet with your dentist, you'll discuss options for repairing and restoring your teeth to their natural look and function. To undergo a dental bonding procedure, you'll have your teeth thoroughly cleaned and examined by your dentist. Then the dentist will apply a solution to your tooth that will help the bonding agent stick to the surface of the tooth. The bonding will be applied in several coats, each layer making the tooth stronger and look better. The layers are "set" with a special light that cures the resin quickly. When there is enough resin placed on the tooth, it can be shaped into the desired look to match your existing teeth. There's no need for anesthesia when undergoing dental bonding procedures because the work is done on the surface of the teeth.

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.

PRACTICE REVIEWS

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 🙂

Angie Mauldin

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.
