Dental Bonding

Chesterfield Dentist serving the St. Louis, Missouri Area

Dental bonding is increasingly popular these days because it can address several minor dental issues and is often less expensive than other solutions.

When you need a skilled, LVI-trained Missouri dentist who uses dental bonding to address cosmetic and restorative dental problems, please contact Innovative Dental of St. Louis online or by telephone at 636-778-3355 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Charles Janes.

Why Should You Consider Dental Bonding?

Here are just some of the cosmetic or restorative dental health issues that can be successfully addressed with dental bonding:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Discolored or spotted teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Unsightly teeth gaps  

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

One reason the procedure is so quick and easy is that there is no need for Dr. Janes to create a dental mold.

First, our St. Louis cosmetic dentist will determine the exact color of bonding material to match the natural color of your tooth enamel. Then, the bonding is applied in layers. It affixes to the healthy portions of your natural tooth, and is applied more heavily to areas that need repair. After this, the bonding material is cured with ultraviolet light.

Dental bonding is quick and painless, and is often completed in a single office visit. No anesthetic is needed, and making a mold of your mouth is unnecessary.

What Can You Do to Maintain Bonded Teeth?

Look after your dental bonding the same way you do your natural teeth: Brush and floss twice daily.

But know that just like natural teeth, bonding can chip. Our St. Louis dentist may advise dental bonding patients to avoid activities that put undue stress on their new teeth such on pen- or ice-chewing.
