DENTAL BONDING

Perfect teeth within reach

Are your teeth slightly chipped, crooked, or stained? Improve its appearance and feel more confident when you smile with cosmetic dental bonding. Dental Bonding is a tooth restoration procedure in which a resin with the same color as your tooth is bonded to your tooth and then cured with ultraviolet light. 

At Dentistry of Orlando, we offer a faster and less expensive option if you’re not quite ready for veneers or crowns. Many of our patients go for dental bonding for small cosmetic improvements to their teeth. Bonding can be performed and completed within one clinic visit.

Also, unlike veneers and crowns, this procedure requires removing less tooth enamel. They are best used for minor cosmetic touch ups and usually last up to five years.

Preparations

The dentist chooses a resin that blends naturally to the shade of your teeth. Then, he prepares the tooth so that the bonding material will adhere easier. This involves roughening the surface of the affected tooth and applying a liquid conditioner.

Resin application

After tooth surface preparation, the dentist will apply the resin to the tooth, and cure it in place using an ultraviolet light. Finally, the dentist will apply the finishing touches by sculpting into the desired and polishing the resin for a good fit.

MORE ABOUT TOOTH BONDING

Frequently asked questions

Dental bonding or resin teeth bonding is a painless dental treatment. Dr. Marc Chapkis usually doesn’t need to administer anesthesia when performing the procedure. The exceptions are when bonding is close to the gumline, or it’s done to fill a cavity, repair a chip close to the nerve, or if tooth reshaping requires drilling. In general, dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure. There’s also no downtime for the treatment. Once it’s done, you can smile widely and beautifully. 

Dental bonding is a more affordable option compared to porcelain veneers. Since veneers are from porcelain and are made to last longer (usually 15 years or more), they generally cost more. However, if you’re looking for a quick solution to cover stains, repair chips, or gaps, dental bonding does the job at a more affordable rate. 

Dental bonding usually lasts between three to five years. With excellent dental hygiene habits, the resin tooth bonding may last up to 10 years. Dr. Marc Chapkis will provide you with dental care tips for your dental bonds. As a caution, nail biting and other habitual chewing are discouraged to maximize its longevity.
