Dental Composite / Bonding Sunrise, FL
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding, also known as tooth bonding, resin or composite, is considered a direct technique toward improving your smile. Tooth bonding is designed to restore the natural appearance of teeth, such as correcting gaps, cover spots, chips, and discolorations. If your condition applies, it may also help to repair fractures and re-shape teeth. This procedure typically only takes about one visit at Dr. Diana Wohlstein’s dental practice. She will roughen the area that needs to be repaired, etch the tooth with gel, and apply a treatment of bonding primers and tooth-colored composite resin.
To know if you qualify as a candidate for dental bonding, make an appointment with Dr. Wohlstein at on of our two office: Aventura, FL or Sunrise, FL. With her expertise in the area of cosmetic dentistry, patients are known to walk out the doors with more confidence and a brighter smile to show off to the world.
FAQs about Dental Bonding in Sunrise, FL
Is Composite Bonding Painful?
Not at all. Bonding is painless and often performed without the use of an anesthetic since very little tooth removal is necessary.
Is Bonding a Radical Procedure?
No. Composite bonding is the most conservative dentistry available today. Unlike Porcelain veneers, composite involves a minimal amount of tooth reduction and in many cases, none at all.
Are Composites Natural Looking?
Yes. Composite bonding is arguably the most natural type of cosmetic dental restoration as long as it is being performed by a dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry and has the practical skills required for intricate veneering and tooth sculpting. Dr. Wohlstein and her dedicated staff have years of experiencing performing dental procedures using dental bonding.
Does Composite stain or discolor?
The bonding or composite will stain and discolor over time, if not properly maintained. It is highly polishable and stain resistant. Any extrinsic stains which might occur can be removed by a routine dental cleaning and polishing.
Does a Bonded Tooth Require Extra Care?
There are few limitations. It is advisable to avoid biting into hard objects such as ice cubes and hard candy. Fingernail biting should also be avoided.
