Tooth Bonding

Do you have a small chip in your tooth? A minor gap between your front teeth? Stubborn discoloration that is resistant to whitening? Minor imperfections in your smile may be making a big impact on your level of self-confidence. At Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry in Dunedin, Florida, Drs. Ryan Lepore and Erin Dougherty offer dental bonding, a fast and effective way to repair your teeth and hide cosmetic issues with your teeth.

Dental bonding: what it is and its benefits

Dental bonding is the process of applying a tooth-colored material called composite resin to your teeth ways to repair chips or cracks, hide stains, and close small gaps between your teeth. It is one of the quickest cosmetic dental procedures available today. It only takes one visit – no impressions need to be taken and sent off to a laboratory while you wait. In addition, dental bonding does not require extensive tooth preparation, which means that your healthy tooth structure is only minimally altered. Because of this, you don’t typically need anesthesia unless bonding is done in combination with other procedures, such as treating dental decay.

The dental bonding procedure

After a consultation with Dr. Lepore or Dr. Dougherty to determine whether dental bonding is the right solution for you, they will perform the following steps:

  • Gently roughen the surface of the teeth that will be bonded with a conditioning gel that is designed to help the composite resin form a secure bond to the tooth
  • Apply the composite resin precisely where it is needed
  • Cure the resin with a special light
  • Shape and polish the composite resin to provide natural-looking results, so your newly reshaped teeth blend in seamlessly with your smile

Learn whether dental bonding is right for you

If you are tired of hiding your smile, there has never been a better time to act. At Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry, Drs. Lepore and Dougherty offer a variety of cosmetic dental procedures. If dental bonding is not the best choice for your specific needs and preferences, other options, such as crowns, veneers, or orthodontics, can help you achieve the smile you want.
