Dental Bonding

dental bonding at royal dental usa in houston txWhen it comes to our cosmetic services at Royal Dental, dental bonding is one of our simplest, most affordable procedures. Bonding uses a composite resin that can be shaped and polished to exactly match the color of the surrounding teeth. The resin is bonded onto the tooth being addressed, hence the name.

Bonding can solve a variety of cosmetic issues with the teeth: It can be used to make the teeth appear longer than they actually are; it can close slight spaces between teeth; and it can improve the look of discolored or chipped teeth.

Bonding and the application of porcelain veneers can have similar goals, such as covering a chipped or discolored tooth. Veneers require multiple office visits because the tooth or teeth in question need to be measured and then a portion shaved off the front to make room for the veneer. Then a lab needs to create the veneers. When completed, the patient returns to have the veneers applied. In contrast, bonding can be done in one visit. And because nothing needs to be fabricated at a lab, bonding is a less expensive option.

How is bonding done?

After deciding what area is to be addressed, tooth-colored resin is matched to the exact color of the surrounding teeth. Once satisfied with the color, the dentist then applies the resin to the tooth and reshapes it as needed to correct the problem (i.e. lengthening a short tooth or widening a narrow tooth). To set the resin, a laser or ultraviolet light is used.

How long will dental bonding last?

With proper oral hygiene, which in this case is the same as the hygiene you provide to your natural teeth, dental bonds can last up to 15 years.

Quality Dental Services

DermaFuzeYour smile, and therefore your dental health, is presented front and center every day. And when you have an issue — be it a chipped tooth, misshapen teeth, gum disease, stains, or missing teeth — it affects the way you interact with others. No one should have to live with dental issues.

That’s where our seven locations of Royal Dental come in. We offer preventative, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry to address all of your oral health needs.

Dental problems aren’t something to live with

At one time or another, everyone encounters some sort of dental problem. It may be simple tooth decay, addressed by a filling. Or it may be something far more serious such as periodontitis, commonly known as gum disease. Addressing that may require tooth scaling, root planning, crown lengthening, and perio-regeneration. Maybe you simply need to cover some chips or severe stains on your teeth with dental bonding or porcelain veneers. Maybe your teeth need straightening with standard braces or newer technologies such as Invisalign.

Whatever your dental health issue, we can solve it at Royal Dental. That’s why the power of our seven locations can really benefit you. Besides the convenience of a nearby location, our skill and expertise covers a wide swath. Whatever problem you’re facing, we’ve no doubt already dealt with it dozens of times.

Children’s dentistry

Children’s dentistry is another specialty of ours. Care of the mouths of little ones is as much an educational job as a dental care need. After all, how we handle these early visits can impact how a person views trips to the dentist the rest of their life.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child’s first trip to the dentist should be within six months after the first tooth erupts. That usually occurs before a child’s first birthday.

At Royal Dental we offer these children’s dentistry services:

  • Examination of the teeth and gums
  • X-rays to check on the progress of incoming teeth
  • Teeth cleaning and topical fluoride application
  • We help you educate your children on their home dental hygiene routine
