King House Dental in Redlands, CA uses the latest dental treatments for patients to that their average smile can transform into a healthy, beautiful one! Dr. Steve Tatevossian offers dental bonding to help reshape and restore the teeth to a natural look. Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that applies a tooth-colored, durable resin to teeth that are cracked, misshapen, or in need of repair. Once the dental bonding has hardened the tooth can be filed to match and look like other nearby teeth. Dental bonding is used for many reasons. We often use it during our smile makeover procedures, which helps close gaps in between teeth, and fills in chips and cracks.

"As a person who used to fear the dentist, I can tell you Dr. T is the best dentist I've been to. He provides excellent care and always has the latest technology available. I dislike being numbed, this morning he gave me a filling without it (like always). My appt was at 9, he came in at 9:05 to see me, by 9:24 I was driving home. Very gentle (yes, he drilled) and I can't wait to eat since I won't be biting my numb cheek for hours!"- L.C. / Facebook / May 09, 2017

Dental bonding does not require local anesthetic or sedation, but some patients may want it for increased comfort during the procedure. During the bonding process, we will use a shade guide to select a composite resin that closely matches the color of the patient’s tooth. To prepare the teeth and help the resin bond to the natural teeth, we will texturize the surface and apply a conditioning liquid. Then, the tooth-colored, putty-like resin material is applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape on the tooth. Using a special light, the resin is set and the tooth is polished for a nice, natural finish. Typically, dental bonding only taking 30 - 60 minutes and it can be completed in one visit with no recovery time needed.
Estimate of Cost
The total cost of dental bonding will depend on how many teeth are being treated. Dental bonding is almost always a cosmetic procedure, so most dental insurance companies do not cover it, but our front office is happy to call and check for our patients.
How Long Does Bonding Last?
With good oral hygiene, the effects of dental bonding can last up 7 - 10 years. It is important for patients to maintain a good regimen of brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist to maintain the quality of the bond.
Special Care for Bonded Teeth?
Bonded teeth should be treated just like regular teeth, which means good oral hygiene. However, because the bonded material is susceptible to chipping, patients will damage the resin faster if they continue habits such as biting fingernails and chewing on hard food or objects.
Benefits of Bonding?
Dental bonding is an effective and noninvasive procedure that can be used to fix a number of cosmetic tooth concerns. This treatment also helps to keep the teeth strong and healthy by strengthening the enamel. For patients who do not qualify or do not wish to undergo oral surgery, dental bonding can be a great choice for minor dental problems.
