Same Day Dental Bonding for Patient Ease

Patients interested in a quick, cost-effective cosmetic dentistry solution may want to consider cosmetic dental bonding. Cosmetic bonding offers an affordable alternative to more involved cosmetic services like veneers. With proper care, the results can last up to 10 years! Leading Edge Dentistry can help fix any minor cosmetic imperfection using cosmetic bonding in West Cobb. If you’re ready to improve your smile, contact us to schedule an appointment.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to cover some of the most annoying cosmetic flaws, cosmetic bonding is an ideal solution. Using a tooth-colored composite resin, Leading Edge Dentistry can restore your smile to its original beauty, covering any and all minor imperfections. One of the greatest benefits to cosmetic bonding is that it is completed in one visit, unlike porcelain veneers that require multiple visits and a lab to create your permanent fixtures.

The resin, which bonds to your teeth, is shaped to match the size of your nearby teeth, and it mimics the natural color of your teeth, so no one will be able to tell the difference!

What is it Used For?

If you’re like many patients, it doesn’t take much to want to hide your smile from others. Minor cosmetic flaws can be enough to send you on a frantic search for a useful and beneficial solution. Cosmetic bonding is a cost-effective alternative to fixing minor cosmetic issues, such as:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Dental discoloration

You might even be surprised to learn that bonding is also used as an alternative to amalgam fillings. It can also protect your tooth’s root if it has been exposed due to receding gums.

What is the Process?

Once selected, he and his team will prepare the tooth by roughening the surface and coating it lightly with a conditioning liquid. This will help the bonding material to adhere to the tooth. They will then place the composite resin, shaping it in place directly on the enamel.

Once we have achieved the ideal shape, we use a curing light to harden the cosmetic bonding into place. Next, the team will make any minor adjustments, trimming and shaping it if necessary. Ensuring the ideal finish, he will polish and seal the tooth for a flawless smile.

The entire process should only take 30 minutes to one hour to complete, and if you are having multiple teeth done, it may be best if you schedule multiple appointments.

It’s important to know that anesthesia isn’t necessary when undergoing a cosmetic bonding procedure unless you are having a cavity filled with the same tooth-colored resin.

How Can I Prevent Stains?

To avoid having your bonded tooth appear a different color than the rest of your teeth, there are a few things you should avoid:

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Cigarettes
  • Soda
  • Berries
  • Red Wine

Avoid eating or drinking anything that is dark-colored and can cause staining for the first 48 hours. It’s best if you limit the above-mentioned items altogether. It’s also important to remember to brush and floss your teeth, and make sure to keep your regularly scheduled six-month dental appointments.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This office is amazing! When I arrive for my hygiene visits, the front staff is always very friendly! I don’t have to wait long for the hygienist to bring me back and throughout the visit she explains each step. The doctor is very thorough in reviewing the recommended treatment. When I had to have treatment completed- the doctor explained each step of the procedure. The numbing injection was painless and they made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. My whole family (including my 2 kids) does not mind visiting the dentist anymore. Dr. Howard and his team are wonderful!

I have been a patient for 25+ years. Dr. Howard and his staff are wonderful. He makes sure that any procedure is painless. I recently had some cosmetic dentistry work performed and could not be more pleased with the results. The changes look very natural and I wish I had done it sooner. Dr. Howard spent a lot of time designing a new smile for me. He provided pictures of what to expect afterwards and it exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Leading Edge Dentistry. They are true professionals.

I had my regular dental check up at Dr. Howard's practice yesterday since this pandemic stuff started. I was a little nervous, because this was my first visit to an establishment like this since the shutdown. I had nothing to worry about. It was an extremely pleasant experience and I felt comfortable from the very initial contact. The office staff were efficient, and made the revised check-in process to ensure the pandemic procedures were followed seem effortless. I only had to wait a couple of minutes for my appointment and was seated in a separate room from other in-coming patients. During the COVID-19 shutdown, Dr. Howard kept his patients informed on all the additional precautions he was taking to ensure that both patients and staff are protected from the virus. I was very impressed with his efforts and the new ventilation system. The office, while always clean and fresh, seemed even more so, if possible. I felt totally comfortable during the whole visit. I trust Dr. Howard and his staff and appreciate all they do.
