King House Dental Group
King House Dental Group in Redlands, CA uses the latest dental treatments for patients so 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.
Most patients do not require sedation when going through a Dental Bonding procedure, but you might request it to increase your comfort. During this procedure, the dentist carefully matches the color of the composite resing that will be used to your natural teeth. Then he’ll texturize your teeth surface and apply a special liquid to help the resin bond well. Finally, the dentist will apply the putty-like resin material, molding it to the desired tooth shape.
The dentist then will shine a special light to set the resin and give it a natural finishing look by polishing it. The dental bonding procedure usually lasts between 30 to 60 minutes and it can be done in one visit without requiring any recovery time.
The price for dental bonding will vary depending on how many teeth need to be treated. Although most dental insurance companies do not cover dental bonding because it’s considered a cosmetic procedure, we’ll be glad to call and double check for you.
Patients who keep a healthy oral hygiene regime of brushing, flossing, and periodic dental visits, can expect to maintain the quality of their dental bonding for up to 10 years.
Just like natural teeth, bonded teeth can benefit from good oral hygiene. Contrary to natural teeth, the bonded material is less resistant to chipping or breaking. Because of this, special care is recommended. Avoid using natural or bonded teeth to bite on hard objects such as nails and or to open bottles or packages.
Dental bonding is an effective and non-invasive procedure that can be used to fix a number of cosmetic tooth concerns. This procedure keeps teeth strong and healthy by reinforcing enamel.Dental bonding can be a very good option for patients that want to avoid oral surgery or for those that need to treat minor dental issues. Dental bonding can quickly and easily enhance the health and look of your smile.
