Rejuvenate your smile with composite bonding at Excellence in Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale

What is dental bonding?

If you have a minor cosmetic dental concerns that you want to correct quickly, comfortably, and affordably, cosmetic dental bonding may be right for you. Dental bonding, or composite bonding, is a treatment option used in aesthetic dentistry for patients who want to:

Because dental bonding is minimally invasive, you typically will not need to be numbed for this procedure.  If the bonding is being used as a dental filling to repair dental decay or any damage is close to your nerve, anesthetic is used.   First your dentist on Commercial Blvd. will use a shade guide to perfectly match your restoration to your natural teeth.  After your tooth is prepped, your cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale applies a composite, or resin, material to your tooth and expertly molds and sculpts the resin.  An ultraviolet light is applied to cure (causes it to harden) the bonding. Your dentist then polishes the bonding to smooth it and match your natural teeth.

How do I care for my teeth after dental bonding?

The enamel in your natural teeth is very strong.  The composite resin used in teeth bonding is not as strong as your natural teeth. Avoid chewing hard objects like ice cubes or using your teeth as tools . Because resin does not resist long-term stains as well as your enamel, avoid things that stain teeth such coffee, red wine and cigarettes.  Resin material does not whiten like enamel so once it is stained, the stain can not be removed unless the resin is replaced.  To ensure your dental bonding lasts and you maintain a healthy, beautiful smile, Dr. Wasselle and Dr. Rotroff encourage our patients to brush twice a day, floss daily and schedule twice yearly dental cleanings and exams.
