Tooth Bonding Charlotte, NC

Tooth Bonding An Overview

Charlotte dentist Dr. Richard Van Gurp can correct minor cosmetic dental concerns such as spaces between teeth or chipped teeth using cosmetic tooth bonding. This is a fast, affordable treatment that is usually completed in a single visit to our Charlotte dentist office.

Benefits of Tooth Bonding

Cosmetic tooth bonding is a quick, affordable treatment that can be used for adults as well as children. One of the biggest advantages to tooth bonding is that there is very little preparation to the tooth, meaning you retain as much of the natural tooth as possible.

Tooth Bonding is used to:

  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Repair minor tooth chips
  • Repair cracked teeth
  • Improve the appearance of stained teeth
  • Fill tooth cavities

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

Cosmetic tooth bonding is basically the same process as a resin dental filling. Dr. Van Gurp will apply a biocompatible, tooth-colored composite material directly to the tooth and then sculpt it into the desired shape and form. The material is hardened or cured using a special light. Little or no preparation of the tooth is needed.

Harry had just completed orthodontics and while his teeth were in the right place for a proper bite, they were still under-sized. As a result, spaces remained. Harry and his mom were looking for a conservative way to close the spaces. Dr. Van Gurp recommended composite bonding as the best approach. Harry and mom were very pleased with the final result.

Tooth Bonding FAQs

How long does tooth bonding last?

Dental bonding does not last as long as alternatives like veneers, inlays/onlays and dental crowns. With proper care and maintenance, you can expect most tooth bonding to last five years or more.

How do I care for tooth bonding?

Composite resin is not as resistant to food/beverage stains when compared to porcelain restorations. Avoid smoking or tobacco use and maintain regular visits to the dentist to ensure the maximum longevity of your restorations.

How much does tooth bonding cost?

Dental bonding is a relatively affordable procedure and is commonly covered by dental insurance.
