Dr. James Shepler and Dr. Jamie Shepler of North Main Dental, Inc provide comprehensive dental care for families in Dayton, OH. Dental bonding is just one of many dental services we offer to keep your smiles healthy and beautiful. Bonding repairs chips in teeth and can keep your smile looking great for years.

Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a composite resin material that a dentist can sculpt directly onto a tooth to change its shape. It is designed to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. Your Dayton, OH, dentist uses dental bonding to repair chipped teeth and make other cosmetic corrections.

Getting dental bonding

The procedure for getting dental bonding is routine and painless. The tooth is etched with a solution that prepares it for bonding. Then your dentist applies the bonding to fill in the chip and the material is cured with a special light until it hardens. You can come to our office with a chipped tooth and in one appointment leave with a beautiful smile again!

Caring for dental bonding

When you have dental bonding in your mouth, it is prone to staining. You should be careful with certain beverages like coffee, wine, and soda. Enjoy these occasionally and with water so your teeth get rinsed at the same time. Any tobacco use stains your teeth and dental bonding, and your dentist will recommend quitting smoking to prevent oral cancer.

Maintaining a great dental hygiene routine will be important, too. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. With great care, your bonding can last and look great for years.
