Can I Fix My Teeth With Dental Bonding?

How Can Dental Bonding Fix My Teeth? 

Dental bonding, sometimes called composite bonding or teeth bonding, is a treatment your cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale uses to enhance and restore your smile. Nancy Rotroff, DDS, MAGD and Gerard Wasselle, DMD have over 60 years combined experience in cosmetic and general dentistry including dental bonding.  Dental bonding has gained popularity because it is quick, painless, and relatively inexpensive. This procedure is used to repair chips, close gaps or change the shape, length and color of your tooth. Composite dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure often done in a single visit without any dental shots.

What Is The Procedure For Dental Bonding?

The first step in dental bonding is selecting a composite resin color that perfectly matches the color of your tooth. With years of experience and an artistic touch, your cosmetic dentist on Commercial Blvd uses a shade guide to expertly match the color of your natural teeth.

Next your dentist roughens the surface of your tooth and a bonding agent is applied. The rough surface makes it easier for the composite to stick. Your dentist places the composite resin on your tooth and expertly molds and smooths it to restore your tooth. A curing light, a blue UV light, is applied which hardens the resin bonding it your tooth. Finally, your dentist perfectly polishes your tooth to a natural-looking, translucent shine. 


Can Dental Bonding Close A Gap In My Teeth?

Dental bonding is an excellent option to close a gap between teeth, called a diastema. It is best for gaps that are not excessively wide set as adding too much bonding to a large gap can result in unnaturally large teeth. For patients with a large diastema,  your cosmetic dentist will discuss alternate treatments to create a more natural looking smile.

How Can You Fix A Chipped Front Tooth?

Composite dental bonding is an excellent, affordable treatment for your chipped tooth.  Your Fort Lauderdale dentist can restore the appearance and rebuild your chipped tooth.  Dental bonding front teeth is a relatively inexpensive treatment option to repair a chipped tooth.  Regardless of how minor the chip or if it seems only to be cosmetic damage, your chipped tooth requires treatment because the chip leaves your tooth vulnerable to decay and infection.

Teeth Whitening Did Not Work. What Can I Do? 

Gray teeth or teeth with internal staining often can not be whitened with traditional bleaching methods. If you had the antibiotic tetracycline or excessive fluoride in your youth, your teeth may have gray stains that are impossible to correct even with professional tooth whitening. A tooth can also appear gray following root canal therapy.  If you have tried to get rid of stains on your teeth without success, call Dr. Nancy Rotroff or Dr. Gerard Wasselle at 954-928-1666. Your cosmetic dentist at Excellence in Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale may recommend dental bonding to restore your smile.

How Long Does Dental Bonding Last?

Several factors affect the longevity of your composite dental bonding.  Your oral health habits, such as your at home oral hygiene routine and your regular dental checkups and professional dental cleanings, are important to keeping all of your dental work in good shape . Because your dentist uses only the highest quality composit bonding material, your restorations will look natural and last longer.  When you take care of your restoration, you can expect your dental bonding to last between three and ten years before it will to be replaced.
