Do you want a quick and inexpensive way to repair minor damage to your teeth? Why not ask our dentist Dr. John Dobry about a dental bond?

If you have a minor chip on one of your teeth, or if you need to correct gaps in your teeth, or if you have a tooth that needs to be lengthened, a dental bond may be the perfect fix for you. The process is easy, and unless you need to have decayed tooth material removed, no anesthetic will be required. After abrading or roughing up the surface of your tooth, the dentist will mix the bonding material so that its color will match the surface of your tooth. After shaping the bonding material around your tooth, the dentist will cure it with a special light. Then, he will polish it so it will blend in with your tooth.

Your bond is nowhere nearly as strong as you natural teeth, and it can be stained. So you will need to avoid chewing on pens, and pencils. You will also need to remember that dark colored foods and drinks can stain your veneer. Since a whitening treatment will not work on a bond, you will need to have it repaired or replaced by your dentist. The best way to take care of your bond is to continue to brush and floss your teeth, and to see the dentist for your regular appointments.
