St Petersburg Dental Bonding

Are you embarrassed about your smile because of chipped or discolored teeth? 

Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth, often without reducing the structure of the tooth. The bonding material is sculpted by your dentist so that it resembles a natural tooth, correcting chips, and broken, stained or discolored teeth and in some cases correcting gaps.

It is less of an investment than veneers but like a natural tooth, the resin may stain with the use of coffee or other staining foods.

Are You Ready for Dental Bonding?

Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures we provide. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to perfectly match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It can also be used to close spaces between teeth or change their shape or color making them look longer.

Advantages of cosmetic bonding include:

  • Improves the appearance of cracked, chipped, uneven, and stained teeth
  • Closes spaces between your front teeth
  • No anesthesia is necessary if there is no decay
  • Bonding matches the natural shade of your teeth
  • Protects exposed roots
  • Reshapes crooked or misshapen teeth

Questions & Answers

I just want my smile to look good. What are some options to help the appearance of my smile?

You are not alone. Most people want to have a nice smile since it is the first thing others notice about you. You may be interested in a few minor adjustments or may have concerns that need more attention. Some smiles can be enhanced with simple whitening or bonding treatments. Other smiles need porcelain veneers, crowns or bridges; gum contouring; periodontal therapy or a combination of all these techniques. Dr. Powless and Dr. Matos will suggest a treatment plan for you based on your goals, areas of concern and the overall condition of your oral health. Contact us for a complimentary smile evaluation to determine what course of action will produce the best solution for you.

I want my front teeth to look better, but I do not want to wear braces. What would you recommend?

Dr. Powless and Dr. Matos have a number of ways to improve the look of your front teeth without the use of unsightly braces. For slightly crooked or unevenly worn teeth, a bit of reshaping and the addition of crowns or porcelain veneers may be sufficient to give them a bright, uniform look. Our doctors also offer Invisalign as an orthodontic option for adults and teens alike. We would be happy to talk with you further about the option that best suits your individual situation.

I really do not like visiting the dentist, is there anything you can do to help me relax?

Many people are uncomfortable with visiting the dentist. Your comfort is our highest priority. We treat our patients like our family. Our caring approach will help ease your fears and concerns about your dental care. Nitrous oxide or oral sedation is also offered to keep you comfortable and relaxed. IV and hospital sedation is available in our Tampa office, please schedule a consultation to further discuss your dental needs.

What can I expect from my first appointment?

During your first appointment, your overall dental and oral health will be assessed with a comprehensive oral evaluation. Upon completion of your medical / dental health form, we will ask you to tell us your goals regarding your smile, teeth, and gums. Digital photos and X-Rays will be taken of your teeth to identify areas of decay, cracked teeth and malfunctioning restorations. Our goal is to preserve as much of your teeth as possible by catching decay in its earliest stages. We’ll also assess your gums and recommend the appropriate hygiene treatment for you.

I want cosmetic dentistry. Does my insurance pay for it?

Dental insurance is designed to assist you in paying for your dentistry. Most procedures are not fully covered by your insurance. Cosmetic dentistry, in particular, is not covered by most dental insurance plans. To help you afford your smile, we do offer a variety of payment options in addition to a monthly payment plan provided by our financial partner, Care Credit™. We also pay special attention to maximizing the benefits that your insurance does provide. Ask our front office team how you can comfortably afford your dentistry and maximize your dental insurance benefits.
