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.
Teeth bonding is a cosmetic restorative treatment that uses resin materials bonded directly onto the tooth. We recommend this procedure if you want to resolve any of these dental issues:
Are your teeth too far from each other? Let's close those gaps by adding width to your teeth.
Chipped or crooked teeth? Bonding can repair broken tooth and give you a more confident smile.
Some stains can be hard to removed and the best way to get rid of them is to cover them with bonding.
Bonding can cover exposed roots and prevent increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
The dental bonding procedure typically requires between 30 to 60 minutes to complete for each tooth. Here’s how we restore function and improve teeth aesthetic:
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.
