With the many distractions, responsibilities, and obligations that take up most Americans' spare time, something as simple (but essential) dental bondingas making an appointment to go to the dentist can seem impossible to fit in, in the absence of an emergency like a broken tooth or throbbing pain. As such, setting aside time to make cosmetic improvements and adjustments to our smiles can seem downright self-indulgent. But when it comes to the teeth and gums, making small improvements and addressing problems before they progress will actually help to save time, money, (and in many cases pain and discomfort) in the long term.

Dental Bonding in Stuart, FL

Most people are familiar with other cosmetic dentistry procedures like professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and traditional crowns (caps). Like veneers, bonding is used to correct minor cosmetic dental problems. Dr. R. Ian Murray, a dentist in Stuart, FL, recommends dental bonding to repair dental problems such as:

  • Minor chips and cracks
  • Small gaps and uneven teeth
  • Stains and discolorations that can't be treated with professional or over the counter teeth whitening products
  • Protect roots from minor cases of gum recession

Bonding is the most affordable and minimally invasive cosmetic dental restoration procedure available. Made of composite resin, Dr. Murray molds the material to match the color and texture of the surrounding teeth. With proper oral hygiene and dental care, bonded teeth can last for several years. A single procedure can be completed in as little as a 30-minute dental appointment, making it ideal for busy men and women on the go.
