Dental Bonding in Boca Raton, FL
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves applying a composite resin material directly to the surface of your teeth. The material can be sculpted to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, giving you an instant smile makeover. The entire process usually takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth and can be completed in a single visit to our office.
Dental bonding is a great option for those looking to make cosmetic improvements to their smile. It can repair minor cosmetic flaws such as chipped, cracked, and discolored teeth. It can also be used to close gaps between teeth or straighten slightly crooked teeth. Compared to other restorative dental treatments, teeth bonding is a safe and non-invasive procedure that does not require drilling or anesthesia. This makes it an ideal solution for those who want a quick and easy way to improve their smile without undergoing more extensive cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers or crowns.
Why Consider Dental Bonding?
Aside from improving the appearance of your smile, composite bonding is a relatively inexpensive procedure and can be completed in just one visit to our dental office. Also, the composite resin material used for the bonding is durable and can last 8 years or more with proper care.
Since the material used for bonding is matched to the color of your natural tooth enamel, the results look very natural. This makes it an excellent option for those who want to make subtle changes to their smile without anyone noticing.
Most importantly, it helps improve oral health by protecting the teeth from further damage. When you have chips or cracks in your teeth, they can become more susceptible to decay and other problems. Bonding helps to fill in these areas and protect the teeth from further damage.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
The dental bonding begins with our dentist preparing the tooth by lightly etching the tooth surface and applying a conditioning liquid. This helps to ensure that the bonding agent will adhere properly to the tooth. Our dentist will then apply a thin layer of tooth-colored resin material to the tooth and shape it as desired. Once this is done, a special light is used to harden and set the material in place. Finally, our dentist will polish the composite resin material to give it a natural and glossy finish.
If you notice any sharp edges or imperfections in the bonding material, call our office immediately, and we will be happy to make any necessary adjustments.
How To Take Care Of Your Bonded Teeth
- Practice good oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily to keep them clean and free of plaque.
- Avoid chewing on hard foods as this can damage the composite material.
- Avoid eating staining foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, and red wine.
- Visit your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings to ensure that your bonded teeth stay in great condition.
