Tooth Bonding Plantation, FL

Tooth BondingAn Overview

Dental bonding offers a reversible, and often more affordable, alternative to dental veneers. Dental bonding is an ideal cosmetic dental treatment for patients seeking a way to repair cosmetic blemishes.

This cosmetic dental treatment offers natural-looking, long lasting results. Patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile, but are not yet ready to commit to the permanence or financial cost of porcelain veneers, may consider dental bonding.

Dental bonding is made from a malleable resin that is shaped by hand, and color matched to your tooth for a beautiful aesthetic result. Dr. Dham has years of experience using bonding to help patients restore the appearance of their smile in Plantation FL. We only use modern materials and techniques to improve your smile.

Tooth bonding can be used to correct cosmetic dental concerns, including:

  • Chipped teeth: Replace the portion of your tooth that has chipped off.
  • Discolored teeth: Deep white spots on teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening can be covered with bonding material.
  • Cracked teeth: Bond the cracks in your teeth with strong resin material without having to replace your tooth.
  • Misshapen teeth: We can hide the shape of a single crooked tooth to save you money on orthodontics. We can also elongate the shape of short and small teeth.
  • Gaps between teeth: Close the gap between your front teeth in a single visit!

Dental bonding is an effective, minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of your smile. It is a reversible cosmetic treatment option, so you can choose a more permanent restoration later on. Dental bonding is highly durable and can last up to ten years with proper oral hygiene.

I had a great experience at this dental office. The place was clean, the environment was friendly, and the staff answered all of my questions in a very helpful way. I got a great cleaning too. I love how smooth my teeth feel after I have them cleaned!Jamie L.
The staff and Dr. Dham are very friendly. The office is always very clean and welcoming. I have a slight fear of the dentists. Yet, I've had all of my wisdom teeth extracted in the past. Today I had a root canal. Although this procedure is quite scary (at least…Emilia C.
I would suggest that anyone opening a practice set up a shadowing session with Dr. Uttma and her staff. They'll show you exactly what patient's expect during a visit. There have been so many times where I've scheduled appts with other offices and they don't even do the work. No…NJ J
I wish I had met Dr. Dharm and her staff years ago. Better late than never. This was the most extensive dental work I have ever had. Dr. Dharm's skill and concern got me through it all. Her staff is not only professional but caring and friendly. They are all…Nia I.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

The dental bonding procedure is typically completed in just one visit to our Plantation, FL dentist office. Dental bonding is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime. Patients are able to return to their daily routine after treatment.

The process will begin after we gather information from an initial dental exam. If you are a good candidate for tooth bonding, we will start by numbing the area around the affected tooth with local anesthesia. This will prevent you from feeling discomfort and soreness throughout the procedure. After your mouth is sufficiently numb, Dr. Dham will remove an ultra-thin layer of enamel from the affected tooth to prepare it for the bonding material. This creates a rough surface for the material to adhere.

Dr. Dham will then place the bonding directly onto the prepared tooth and sculpt it to shape a natural look. She will have you take a look at the new restoration before curing it for a long-term result. Once you approve the result, the bonding will be hardened using a special UV light.

Dental Bonding FAQs

How long does tooth bonding take to harden?

During dental bonding, your dentist will paint a tooth-colored resin on your teeth and wait for it to set. It takes between 30 and 60 minutes for this to completely solidify.

How many times can a tooth be bonded?

A veneer or crown may be the next step after bonding has failed three times. Based on how much tooth structure is still present, this would be decided. Our office  can offer you a clear answer with the help of photos and dental technology.

Can tooth bonding fall off?

Even though it’s rare, dental bonding does occasionally come loose. Dental bonding attaches to the tooth’s surface, therefore occasionally the adhesive material wasn’t applied completely and the bond may fall off.
