The Benefits of Dental Bonding
There are several benefits with having dental bonding applied to your teeth. One benefit is that it will immediately improve the look of your teeth and smile. This will come as a relief if you have struggled with cracked or chipped teeth and cannot wait to get them repaired. Another benefit is that the bonding will also strengthen the tooth. When teeth are cracked, they are more susceptible to bacteria, infection, and further damage.
Restoring the shape of a chipped or cracked tooth means that some of the strength will be restored as well. Another benefit is that it is instant. Most dental bonding treatments can be completed in one visit with Karmazin Dental, meaning you can immediately enjoy your new smile. You can have your dental bonding touched up at future dental visits if the bonding begins to wear, or if it needs to be replaced.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
First, Karmazin Dental will use a shade guide to select a shade of resin that will match the natural color of the tooth. Before attaching the bonding, the surface of the tooth is roughened and lightly coated with a conditioning liquid so that the bonding material will stick to the enamel. Once the tooth is prepared, our creative team will apply the putty-like resin to the tooth and sculpt, shape and mold it until it is in the proper shape. Then the material is hardened with an ultraviolet light. After the resin is set, we will complete any finishing touches, such as additional shaping and polishing of the newly bonded tooth.
It usually takes between 30 minutes to an hour to complete the dental bonding procedure. If you are having multiple teeth done, it might take several visits to complete. Because most tooth bonding procedures do not require any anesthesia, you can return to your normal daily activities immediately.
It's a Team Thing. Here at Karmazin Dental, we invest heavily in recruitment of “A+” team members. Everyone on Team Karmazin has unparallel talent and an ongoing commitment to continuing education. No matter who you see at your appointment, you can be assured that you will be met with a wealth of experience and knowledge not to mention, unequaled customer service.
Not Insurance Driven. The restrictions and limitations that dental insurance puts on its members and Dentists is continuously changing and it is not always for the betterment of the patient. Our focus at Karmazin Dental is to provide patients with the best course of treatment for them, period. For patients without dental insurance, we offer and in house membership plan, which gives the power BACK to our patients. By removing the restrictions of what insurance says they will or will not cover, patients get to spend their money the way they want.

The Life Expectancy of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is not a permanent restoration, but it can last a long time. When cared for properly, and when you visit Karmazin Dental on a regular basis for exams and touch-ups, dental bonding can last for many years.
Taking care of your teeth will help extend the life of a bonded tooth. Suggestions include:
- Brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily.
- Avoiding hard food and candy.
- Do not bite your nails.
- Avoid coffee, tea, and tobacco for the first two days after the procedure to avoid stains.
- Schedule your regular exams and dental cleanings every six months.
Call us if you accidentally chip or break the bonding material, or if you feel any sharp or rough edges after the procedure. If you have severely damaged teeth, the dental bonding might need to be replaced with another type of restoration later.
Dental Bonding versus Veneers
Dental bonding is designed for use in simple cosmetic improvements that do not impact the function of your teeth or gums in any way. Chips, cracks, gaps are the most common issues that dental bonding will correct. They differ from veneers in that veneers are made of layered glass ceramics and crafted outside in a dental lab. The veneer is designed to look and feel like your real teeth, and it adheres to your tooth with a cement.
