About Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding is a composite resin filling that can be placed in all the teeth, both front and back. An advantage of tooth bonding is that both small and large corrections can be done. Unlike silver fillings, bonding expands and is more likely to not cause cracks in your teeth.

What to Expect

Overall, bonding covers most of the natures’ flaws. An added benefit to this application is that the bonding composite resin can be done in many different shades, in order to ensure a match with the patients’ real teeth. Due to the multiple layers involved within this application, the tooth bonding process may take up to an hour or two, depending upon the particular case. If you want an experienced doctor to perform your procedure, Fort Lauderdale Dental Studio has been performing dental bonding and cosmetic dentistry for more than twenty years.

Dental Bonding FAQ

Is dental bonding painful?

No, it isn't. During a dental bonding procedure, we only slightly abrade (roughen) the surface of the tooth, and then the composite resin is placed on the outside of the tooth. Most patients don't find it uncomfortable at all, even without an anesthetic. Some patients may experience mild tooth sensitivity for a couple of days after as their teeth adjust. This can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers (always consult your doctor).

Will my teeth look natural after dental bonding?

Yes, they will. The composite resin for dental bonding comes in a wide variety of natural shades. Dr. Perez will choose a shade that matches the color of your natural teeth, blending it in with your smile.

How long can dental bonding last?

Most patients can expect their dental bonding to last up to 10 years or longer in some cases before a maintenance procedure is needed. Proper oral hygiene and dental checkups will help extend the life of your dental bonding.
