Cosmetic Bonding in Ocala, FL

Bonding is a dental technique or solution for:

  • Repairing and fixing chipped or cracked teeth
  • Hiding discoloration on the tooth's surface
  • Reducing unsightly gaps between the teeth

It is often used to improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile. As the name indicates, it refers to any composite material, either a plastic or resin that is bonded to an existing tooth. Unlike veneers or crowns, composite bonding removes little if any of the original tooth.

Composite bonding has many advantages over veneers or crowns namely:

  • It is a quick process, which typically lasts less than one hour.
  • It is a popular choice because it does not reduce the tooth's original structure and is relatively inexpensive.

Composite resins also come in many different shades, which therefore allow for matching the shades to the natural color of your original tooth. However, composites are typically not as durable and long lasting as veneers and crowns and may need to be re-touched or replaced every five to ten years.

In order to insure the longest possible duration of the bonding, proper care of the bonded tooth is recommended. This means, like the rest of your teeth, it should be brushed and flossed daily especially if you drink coffee, tea, or smoke tobacco, all of which stain composite bonds.
