EMERGENCY SAME DAY CROWNS!! We are very excited to be able to offer same day crowns using CEREC technology.

Bonding

Bonding can fix minor cosmetic dental problems such as closing small gaps between teeth, adding tooth length, or changing the overall shape of a tooth by bonding a tooth-colored composite resin to your tooth. Bonding a tooth-colored composite restoration can also restore fractured teeth. When compared to porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns, bonding is the least expensive dental procedure that can fix cosmetic dental issues.

Dental Bonding Procedure

Very little tooth preparation is necessary for bonding the composite resin to your tooth. Often you will not need to have anesthesia (being numb). We will use a shade guide to select a composite resin color that most closely matches the color of your existing teeth. Once the composite resin material is bonded to your tooth, we are able to fine-tune the shape of the resin as well as polish the material until it matches the sheen and overall texture of your natural teeth.

A Quick Fix for Minor Cosmetic Dental Problems

Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth. Sometimes, bonding is used to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.

Dental bonding requires the least amount of a tooth’s enamel to be removed, thus minimizing discomfort and keeping as much of your tooth’s structural integrity intact as possible.

In most cases, anesthesia is not required for bonding treatment.

Disadvantages to Dental Bonding

Although it is affordable, there are a few note-worthy disadvantages to dental bonding. Dental bonding is quite hard but does wear down over time and the procedure will typically need to be redone. How long dental bonding actually lasts depends on the bonding thickness and your oral habits such as tooth grinding, biting your nails, chewing hard foods, etc. Another minor disadvantage to dental bonding is that it can be stained with tea, coffee, cigarette smoke, etc., just like your normal teeth. Porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns are a much better and permanent solution to treating many of the same problems that can be treated with dental bonding.

We recommend coming in for a consultation first to see if dental bonding is adequate for your specific situation. To get started and to see if dental bonding is right for you, it’s as easy as calling our office at (406) 541-2886 or request an appointment through our website.

Stunning, professional dental office that responded so quickly when an old filling fractured. They got me in right away and the process of getting that same-day crown was simply amazing. The dentist was fabulous, the assistants were incredible and the crown fit the first time it was put in. This is a happy place – the day I was there it was clear everyone was enjoying their work, enjoying the patients and enjoying each other. Incredibly positive and professional experience.!

Both the dentist and hygienist were very kind and extremely understanding and helpful about dental anxiety. I didn’t feel judged or uncomfortable at all about the state of my teeth. I will absolutely be coming back if I have any more issues with my teeth. The best dental visit I have ever had, even though my filling turned into a tooth extraction (that they did right there in the office, as comfortably as possible, after offering a call to an oral surgeon if I decided I would feel more comfortable under sedation). I’m glad I stuck it out and let them take care of it!

Family Dental Group had been taking care of my teeth for a few years now and I tell everybody to go there. I not only feel cared for when I get my teeth cleaned but also empowered to continue caring for my own oral health. In my experience, they are honest in their recommendations and care; not always ambling for the upsell. The front desk employees are usually quite approachable.

On trip to Yellowstone I broke a tooth. Family Dental to the rescue. Thank you Dr. Knable, Kendra, and all the staff who were friendly, helpful, and totally professional. I needed a crown and it was all done in a few hours. The crown feels perfect and I can smile again. Thank you!
