What are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?

If you are located in the Dunedin, Florida area and seek solutions for gaps, permanent staining, and breakage of your front teeth, dental bonding might be suitable for you! Tooth bonding offers many benefits to patients interested in rejuvenating their smile appearance, and the providers at Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry can assist.

Dental bonding is the perfect way to improve your smile and confidence. Bonding can be used to repair cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. It can also be used to close gaps between teeth or change the shape of your teeth.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding Include:

  • improved appearance
  • no or minimal need for anesthesia
  • relatively lower cost compared to porcelain veneers

What Can I Expect from a Dental Bonding Appointment?

Drs. Ryan Lepore and Erin Dougherty of Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry of Dunedin, Florida, can complete dental bonding in a single office visit. It oftentimes does not require anesthesia and provides same-day results. The dentist will gently roughen the enamel being treated. Then, the composite resin material is applied to the tooth, shaped into place, and cured using a special light that hardens the material. The dentist then contours and polishes the bonding to complete the natural-looking repair process. Patients leave the office with a brand-new look!

What are the Downfalls of Dental Bonding?

While dental bonding is cheaper than alternative treatments such as porcelain veneers, it is more susceptible to staining. This means that it might need to be replaced more often than porcelain veneers, especially if patients are heavy red wine, coffee, or tea drinkers. This is because these beverages are known for causing discoloration of the teeth—and restorative work such as dental bonding.

Review by Marietta Correale

As a person with extreme anxiety (especially at the dentist) I have to say, this is one of the few places I have ever felt comfortable. Well, as comfortable as I can, that is. The staff has always gone out of their way to make sure I was doing okay and never made me feel like I was being ridiculous (even though I usually am). I am greatly appreciative of their patience, humor, and honesty.
