Changing lives one smile at a time.
Dental Bonding Procedure
The Dental Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material with adhesives and a high intensity curing light. The procedure gets its name because the materials are attached to the tooth. The joint is generally used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It is also used to close spaces between the teeth, to make the teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of the teeth. Often, the Dental Bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a part of the root of the tooth that has been exposed when the gums recede.
There are two forms of dental bonding:
Composite direct Bonding: the direct composite Bonding is the process in which dentists use composite materials of tooth color that they have in their offices to fill cavities, repair splinters or cracks, close spaces between the teeth and accumulate the worn – lower edges of the teeth. Composite materials can also be applied directly and sculpted to the surfaces of the teeth that look most prominent when you smile, for minimally invasive smile changes. In the dental world, these are called direct composite veneers, but generically known by most as “bonding”.
Adhesive Bonding – Adhesive bonding as opposed to direct composite bonding is the process of placing a restoration on a tooth. This method is commonly used for aesthetic crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges and inlays incrustations. After your dentist has chosen a color that matches the tone of your teeth, he will scrape the surface of the tooth with a mild solution of phosphoric acid. Shortly after removing the roughing agent, a liquid binding agent is applied. The resin similar to a putty of the color of the tooth is applied to the tooth, then it is molded and smoothed until it acquires the desired shape. The material is then hardened with an ultraviolet curing light, and the previous step is repeated until the presentation or the direct composite veneer has reached its final shape. We will then polish the material until it matches the brightness of the rest of the tooth surface.

Dental Bonding FAQs
How much is the cost of Dental Bonding?
Bonding associated with composite direct veneers averages between $350 and $600 per tooth, whereas bonding associated with indirect porcelain veneers averages between $700 and $1,500 per tooth.
What are the benefits of dental bonding?
Since the dental union does not have to be manufactured before placement, your smile makeover can be completed in one visit. The process includes the color and coloration of the composite resin, placing the liquid on top of the tooth and giving it shape to satisfy your smile wishes. Once Dr. Wilde shapes the composite resin, he will use a curing light to harden the material.
What is the purpose of dental bonding?
We typically suggest this cosmetic treatment for patients suffering from small chips, minor cracks, a tooth that appears shorter than surrounding teeth, or gaps between teeth.
Will the material match my tooth?
Yes, we use a material called composite. This substance is a synthetic acrylic resin. Fortunately, it is quite easy to work with and color-customization. This means we can match the shade of the bonding to your tooth and that we may mold it to your specifications.
How many visits will I need to schedule?
In general, dental bonding requires only one visit. We will mold the composite during treatment, so there is no need for wait time or follow-up visits.
Patients who have a number of chips, cracks, stains, or gaps between teeth visible when they smile may consider Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers.

Crown and Bridges
Crowns and dental bridges are more permanent solutions for damaged or missing teeth. They are attached to your own teeth or implants to improve the appearance, alignment or strength of your teeth. Luxe Dental Dentists can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan and perform crown and bridge dental services to restore your smile and confidence.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A simple extraction of teeth involves the removal of a tooth that is visible in the mouth. This could mean removing a damaged or decayed tooth, or removing teeth before receiving the brakes.
Inside your tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, you will find a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help the root of your tooth grow during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues that surround it.
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts and their main objective is to replace any damaged teeth. It is a minimum access surgical procedure that can easily be done in our Lauderhill Dental Office where we have everything necessary and doctors with enough experience to guarantee a pain free procedure. With Dental Implants you have the option to replace one or all of your teeth.
