Posted · Add Comment

You may feel that your only option is to simply live with chipped, stained, or awkwardly aligned front teeth. Maybe you’ve considered porcelain veneers, but you’re not ready to make the commitment. Consider cosmetic bonding from Schrumpf & Herman Family Dentistry in Virginia Beach VA. This attractive alternative may be the answer you’ve been seeking.

Benefits of Bonding

At our Virginia Beach dentist’s office, Dr. Gregory Schrumpf and Dr. Barry Herman work one-on-one with patients to craft the optimal solution for each person’s individual needs. The doctors convey the pros and cons of treatments and discuss realistic expectations.

Cosmetic bonding can be a good choice for patients who want to alter the appearance of their front teeth. Benefits of bonding include:

  • More economical than custom veneers
  • Often no need for anesthesia during the bonding process
  • Short completion time – 30 to 60 minutes per tooth
  • Retention of natural tooth structure
  • Realistic appearance

Bonding Considerations

While cosmetic bonding boasts many advantages, there are some things you should take into consideration. Like natural tooth enamel, the bonding material may stain over time, especially if you consume sodas, coffee, red wine, and other staining substances, or if you smoke. Bonding may last up to 10 years before it needs to be reapplied, which is a shorter time span than some other cosmetic dentistry alternatives.
