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 in your level of self-confidence. At Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry in Dunedin, FL, Dr. Ryan Lepore offers dental bonding, an affordable, 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 and most affordable cosmetic dental procedures available today. It only takes one visit – no impressions need to be taken and then 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 to determine whether dental bonding is the right solution for you, he 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

I have never had a dentist or hygienist care so much for me as a person. I have had sensitive teeth my whole life with every other dentist or hygienist ignoring my concerns. Majority of my cleanings HURT. I’ve had major disregard to my personal pain tolerance and lack of really giving AF. BUT Dr. Lapore really took the time to get to know me as a person and listen to my dental concerns. His hygienist Jessica was absolutely phenomenal, I almost fell asleep in the chair! The quality of the staff at Dr Lepore’s office has left me speechless. From the front desk lady, to the girl who checked me out after my visit. I highly highly recommend them! If you’re looking for quality care, to be seen as a person and not just a patient. Dr Lepore and his staff is the place for you!
