Dental Bonding

If you have a chipped tooth, dental bonding in Port St Lucie, FL at Coast Dental St. Lucie West offers a simple and cost-effective solution to restore both form and function.

Dental bonding uses tooth-colored materials to replace missing tooth structure or conceal minor flaws like chips, discoloration, or small spacing irregularities. These materials, called composite resins, consist of a mix of plastic and glass, providing both translucency and strength. Available in various tooth shades, the composite resins seamlessly blend with your natural tooth, making it virtually indistinguishable.

While dental bonding may not have the same longevity as dental veneers, it boasts several advantages. It often requires no drilling, and the procedure can typically be completed in just one visit without sending any impressions to the lab. As a result, dental bonding in Port St Lucie is an excellent temporary solution for teenagers who are still waiting for their teeth to mature before opting for a more permanent restoration.

The Dental Bonding Process

The good news is that dental bonding in Port St Lucie can usually be done in under an hour. First, the dentist or hygienist will clean the tooth’s surface to ensure it’s free from plaque. Then, they will apply an etching gel that opens up tiny pores on the tooth. After rinsing off the gel, a thin layer of liquid composite resin, matched to your tooth shade, is painted on. This liquid fills the pores, creating a strong bond. A special curing light hardens the bonding material, and the process is repeated with additional layers until the desired thickness is achieved. The dentist will then shape the material with a dental drill and polish it for a perfect fit and appearance.

Caring for Dental Bonded Teeth

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for preserving the beauty and longevity of your bonded teeth. Brush and floss them daily, and make sure to schedule professional cleanings at least twice a year at a dental office in Port St Lucie. Keep in mind that bonded teeth are susceptible to stains from smoking, red wine, coffee, tea, and other colored liquids, just like natural teeth. Additionally, while the composite material may darken over time, it cannot be lightened. If you plan to whiten your teeth, it’s best to do so before undergoing dental bonding in Port St Lucie, allowing the composite shade to match the lighter color of your teeth. Lastly, avoid habits like nail-biting that can exert excessive force on the bonding material and potentially cause chipping. With proper care, bonded teeth can maintain their beauty for 3 to 10 years. Don’t delay; call (772) 343-0179 to schedule your dental bonding appointment in Port St Lucie today!

I’ve been coming to Coast Dental since 2020 and I have always had very thorough cleanings. The dental assistants and staff are friendly and very helpful. They always take the time to educate and have so much patience with me when I ask all my questions. Lesly and Dr Gomez are super friendly and make my appointment very enjoyable. I don’t know how many other people can say that when they go to the dentist but you won’t be disappointed if you come here!

I’m never going to another dental office for as long as coast dental exists. I had an appointment for myself and my mom, trying to kill 2 birds with 1 stone considering my busy schedule. I had to take my 2y/o with us since I didn’t have someone to watch him. He decided that it was the day to drive me crazy and started throwing a tantrum, wouldn’t stop crying. I told them to cancel my appointment and just keep my mom’s. The office manager and one the hygienist, offered to take my son so I can get my things done. I was a little skeptical cz I don’t like to hand my son to people I don’t know. He went to the lady with no problem and sit quietly to play the whole time. She was so sweet and caring with him. It’s the sweetest thing I’ve seen someone in a doctor office do. I manage a Medical office myself, I’ve help parents with kids, giving them candies but that’s about it. Thank you so much for your kindness.

I was very nervous about going to a dentist. My 1st visit there was amazing. Dr. Gomez was so friendly and very professional. My 2nd visit where I had 5 extractions was the best experience I've ever had with a dentist. Dr. Gomez and his assistant were very pleasant and very professional. I will be continuing my dental work here.
