Tooth BondingAn Overview
Dental bonding is an ideal cosmetic dental treatment for patients not yet ready to commit ot the cost of the permanence of porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is revisable, effective, and can improve the aesthetics of your smile. Dental bonding offers a natural looking temporary solution for treating a range of cosmetic concerns.
Dental bonding is a highly malleable resin material. The bonding agent is color matched and shaped for beautiful results that blend seamlessly with the natural smile. Dr. Perkins has a natural eye for facial aesthetics. He uses bonding to create natural, beautiful results that enhance the patient’s smile.
Tooth bonding can:
- Close gaps
- Repair cracked or chipped teeth
- Reshape teeth
- Cover tooth discoloration
The dental bonding procedure is quick, highly efficient and minimally invasive and does not require the same extensive tooth preparation as porcelain veneers. Bonding is a solution for younger patients looking for an improved smile who are not ready for the permanence of dental veneers. With good oral hygiene and regular dental health exams, bonding can last for up to 10 years.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect
Tooth bonding is most commonly completed in just one visit to our Dunnellon, FL dentist office and patients enjoy instant results and require little to no downtime.
The teeth are prepared for treatment by removing an ultra thin layer of enamel from the tooth. The bonding material is placed directly on the prepared teeth. Dr. Perkins then molds the material into the desired shape and size. Dr. Perkins maintains open communication through out the process to ensure that the patient is fully satisfied with the appearance of the dental bonding.
Once the tooth blends with surrounding teeth and the patient gives their approval, Dr. Perkins will use specialized light to active the hardening agent. The bonding will be secured to the tooth and polished for a natural luster.
