Reliable & Customizable Dental Bonding
Dr. Rogler may recommend dental bonding when you visit our Long Valley dental office.
The procedure is helpful for patients who have the following:
Chipped or cracked teeth
Discolored or stained teeth
Wide spaces between teeth
Exposed tooth roots
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding offers several unique advantages for our patients, including:
Quick application – It usually takes just one appointment to complete the dental bonding process.
Affordable – It’s one of the least expensive dental procedures.
Minimally invasive – Bonding is a pain-free treatment that doesn’t require surgery or any extra maintenance following the procedure.
Versatility – We can resolve several cosmetic and preventative dental problems by using this treatment.
Durability – Your bonding can last up to 10 years with proper oral health care.
The Dental Bonding Process
We can typically complete this treatment in just one quick appointment at our Long Valley office.
There’s not much we’ll have to do before we apply your customized bonding solution. We offer sedation dentistry for patients who request it, but many patients don’t find this step necessary. The patients who usually choose sedation are those with decayed or broken teeth with exposed tooth roots.
We’ll now smooth the surface of your teeth before placing the customized bonding solution on the surface. It will bond with the tooth and harden as we smooth it into your desired shape. We’ll finish the process by brushing your tooth with a polishing treatment, which finalizes your restoration and helps you feel better about your smile.
Most patients complete their bonding procedures within one appointment. Each tooth usually takes around 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Ultimately, the total time of your treatment mostly depends on the number of teeth you’re bonding. After just a short waiting period, you’ll leave our office showing off your dazzling new smile.
Caring For Your Newly Bonded Teeth
Ensuring that your bonded teeth stay looking and feeling comfortable takes daily routine oral hygiene.
Here are Dr. Rogler’s tips to help extend the life of your teeth:
Brush and floss twice a day
Avoid coffee, tobacco, hard candy, and nail-biting
Schedule a preventative exam at least every 6 months
Frequently Asked Questions
Is dental bonding painful?
Dental bonding is a relatively painless and non-invasive procedure that won’t require any anesthesia. While you may experience some tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures after the treatment, this usually subsides on its own. You can also manage this discomfort with any over-the-counter pain medication. If you continue to experience any further symptoms, contact our office by calling (908) 850-0506.
How long does dental bonding last?
Dental bonding can last 10 years or more with proper oral care. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily, and scheduling bi-annual cleanings with our Long Valley office. Dr. Rogler will examine your teeth and let you know when your dental bonding has to be replaced. Our office will provide you with a list of instructions to follow so that you can benefit the most from the procedure.
What should I do if my bonding breaks?
If your dental bonding breaks or gets damaged, it’s important to seek immediate treatment to avoid any further complications. We recommend that you contact our Long Valley office at (908) 850-0506 to receive further assistance from Dr. Rogler. Generally, the process for repairing your bonding is simple, and our expert team can complete the process in one quick visit.
Can the resin from dental bonding stain?
The composite resin used for dental bonding can stain and become discolored. Dr. Rogler recommends avoiding smoking as well as certain foods and drinks. This includes berries, wine, coffee, tomato sauce, curry, fruit juices, etc. Unlike your tooth’s enamel, dental bonding can’t be whitened once stained and will have to be replaced.
