Dental Bonding in Jupiter, FL
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that provides long-term repair for several common problems with the teeth. Smiles Dentistry in Jupiter, Florida, led by Sharada Kacham, DDS, offers dental bonding for patients in West Palm Beach and the surrounding communities in Palm Beach County.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses a special composite material to repair and correct common dental issues. The material used is colored to match your natural teeth. Dental bonding does wear away over time, but the results can last for several years before you need a follow-up treatment.
Dental Bonding Benefits and Treatment Options
Dr. Kacham recommends dental bonding as a cosmetic treatment for patients with:
- Stains and discoloration that cannot be removed with teeth whitening
- Correcting spaces and gaps between teeth
- Fixing broken or chipped teeth that do not require tooth extraction or dental crowns
Why is Dental Bonding Necessary?
Dental bonding is an optional treatment for patients who are concerned with the appearance of their teeth but do not benefit from other treatments, such as teeth whitening, crowns or extractions.
What is the Procedure for Dental Bonding?
Most patients are able to remain comfortable during the dental bonding procedure, but a local anesthesia can be used if needed. Dr. Kacham prepares the bonding resin by adding coloring to match your natural teeth. The surface of the tooth needs to be textured to ensure that the resin adheres properly. After the tooth is made rough, Dr. Kacham applies a conditioning liquid followed by the resin. The resin is shaped and molded to mimic the natural contours of the tooth. An ultraviolet light or laser is applied to the resin to help it harden in place. The resin may need to be trimmed and smoothed out with special tools.
Preparing for Dental Bonding
Dental bonding takes 30 to 60 minutes, so you should plan to be in our office for 45 minutes to just over an hour.
Recovery from Dental Bonding
The resin that is used for dental bonding does not require any special care after the procedure. Simply follow a healthy regimen of brushing, flossing, dental examinations, and professional cleanings to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. In the years after your dental bonding, Dr. Kacham will recommend follow-up treatments with dental bonding as needed.
How Much Does Dental Bonding Cost in Jupiter?
Because dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment, the cost may not be covered by dental insurance. After your consultation, we review your coverage and advise you about the out-of-pocket costs. You can pay for your dental bonding with cash, personal check, and credit card. We also accept CareCredit® as an option for affordable and convenient dental financing.
Is Dental Bonding Right for Me?
