What you need to know about dental bonding

Is your smile less than beautiful, with teeth that are badly shaped, discolored or just plain ugly? You want to fix your smile, but the options you’ve looked at are more expensive and take longer than you want. It’s time to consider dental bonding, the relatively dental bondinginexpensive and quick way to jazz up your smile. Dental bonding is the modern way to change the way your smile looks and is a technique used by cosmetic dentistry experts like Dr. Marcia Martinez of Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Orlando, FL.

Dental bonding is a process that uses a versatile material called composite, which starts out as a liquid resin.Your Orlando dentist will color match the composite to your existing teeth, providing a seamless, natural look to your smile. She will apply the liquid composite, sculpting it carefully to your tooth, giving your tooth a more natural, even look. The composite is then hardened with a special ultraviolet “curing” light. Dr. Martinez finishes your treatment by shaping and polishing your new composite to give you the cosmetically beautiful look you want.

Composite dental bonding can be used to fix many minor and major cosmetic issues including:

  • Small cracks and chips in your teeth
  • Excessively worn teeth due to aging or other reasons
  • Closing small spaces or gaps in between teeth
  • Slightly rotated, twisted or overlapped teeth
  • Darkly stained or discolored teeth
  • Grayed or yellowed teeth from medications like tetracycline

Dr. Martinez wants you to know that most composite dental bonding treatments are minimally invasive and won’t require injections to numb your tissue or teeth. The treatment is completely comfortable and usually can be completed in one appointment, making dental bonding the perfect solution for busy people.

Your composite dental bonding treatment can give you the smile you want comfortably, quickly and within your budget. You deserve to look great, and your smile is a huge part of your looks.

BondingLearn how dental bonding can painlessly and attractively make over your smile.

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure in which Dr. Marcia Martinez, your Orlando, Florida dentist, applies a tooth-colored resin material to a tooth to improve its appearance. Learn why and how bonding is used at her Orlando dental office today!

When is bonding recommended?

Bonding resin is often used as an alternative to filling cavities with metal materials, especially on teeth which are immediately visible while smiling or talking. It can also be used to fill in cracks, chips or spaces between the teeth or reshape a tooth that is naturally irregular. Bonding is typically recommended for people who have small imperfections; larger spaces or severely damaged teeth may be better suited for different cosmetic treatments. It also works best for teeth that are not integral to chewing.

How does bonding work?

Typically, bonding is a non-invasive procedure, meaning Dr. Marcia Martinez will not need to use anesthetic in order to apply the resin, although the surface may need to be lightly buffed with a motorized tool to ensure proper adhesion. The color of the resin will be selected based on the prevailing color of your teeth. The resin starts out as a putty-like material to allow your Orlando dentist to shape it as necessary. It will then be exposed to a safe ultraviolet light or laser to harden it and complete the bonding process. The whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes at Dr. Marcia Martinez's Orlando dental office.

Bonding is an excellent and inexpensive way to enhance your smile and fix little problems that detract from your overall appearance. If you think you could benefit from the effects of bonding, contact the dental team at Dr. Marcia Martinez's office in Orlando to set up a consultation today.
