Customized Smile Enhancement

At Vlass & Merritt Dental Care, we specialize in customized smile enhancements through dental bonding. Our experienced dentists carefully assess your dental needs and aesthetic goals to create personalized treatment plans tailored to achieve the smile you desire. Whether you have minor imperfections or more significant concerns, dental bonding can help you achieve a radiant, confident smile.

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Dental bonding offers a minimally invasive alternative to more extensive cosmetic treatments such as veneers or crowns. With dental bonding, only a minimal amount of enamel is removed, preserving more of your natural tooth structure. This conservative approach allows for quick and comfortable treatment with beautiful, long-lasting results.

Seamless Integration with Natural Teeth

One of the key benefits of dental bonding is its ability to seamlessly integrate with your natural teeth. The composite resin material used in bonding is carefully color-matched to your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless blend and a natural-looking result. Whether repairing a small chip or enhancing the shape of a tooth, dental bonding provides aesthetic improvements that enhance your smile's beauty.

Transform Your Smile with Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a versatile cosmetic dentistry procedure offered at Vlass & Merritt Dental Care to address a variety of aesthetic concerns. Using composite resin material matched to the shade of your natural teeth, our skilled dentists can repair chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth, as well as close gaps and improve the overall appearance of your smile with a minimally invasive approach.

Dental Bonding FAQ's

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied and bonded to the surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. It is commonly used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps between teeth, reshape misaligned teeth, and cover stains or discolorations.

Dental bonding is typically performed in a single visit to the dentist’s office and does not usually require anesthesia unless it is being used to fill a cavity. The tooth surface is first cleaned and prepared, and then the bonding material is applied, shaped, and molded to achieve the desired shape and contour. A special light is used to harden the bonding material, and final adjustments may be made to ensure a natural-looking result.

Dental bonding offers several advantages, including its affordability compared to other cosmetic dental procedures such as veneers or crowns. It is also minimally invasive, requiring little to no removal of tooth structure, and can usually be completed in a single office visit. Additionally, bonding material can be color-matched to blend seamlessly with the natural teeth, providing aesthetic enhancement with durable and long-lasting results.

While dental bonding is a versatile and effective treatment option for many cosmetic concerns, it may not be suitable for more extensive or severe dental issues. Bonding material is not as stain-resistant or durable as porcelain veneers or crowns, and it may be more prone to chipping or staining over time. Additionally, bonding may not be appropriate for areas of high bite pressure or for patients with significant tooth decay or structural damage.

The lifespan of dental bonding depends on various factors, including the patient’s oral hygiene habits, diet, and lifestyle factors such as teeth grinding or biting on hard objects. On average, dental bonding can last anywhere from 3 to 10 years before requiring repair or replacement. Regular dental check-ups and proper oral hygiene can help extend the longevity of bonding restorations.

Read Our 5-Star Ratings

We are new patients to the practice and have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Joseph Merritt. Dr. Merritt is currently treating my mom who is 90 years old and helping her with some aging gum and teeth issues. The technology that Dr. MERRITT has introduced us to has been absolutely incredible but with technology comes questions. Dr. MERRITT took the time to explain everything to us, step-by-step and answered each and every question. He took his time and made sure Mom understood what he was recommending and why. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and caring approach to each conversation. We just returned from our second visit and again can report another great experience and the communication with the practice has been excellent. Kim coordinated all the transfer of mom’s dental records within an hour, so our visits have been very thorough. Did I mention the amazing technology? It is worth repeating. I am so relieved my mom is in excellent hands and we will be returning to continue the treatments Dr. MERRITT has recommended.
Dr. Vlass is my dentist even though I drive 1.5 hours to his office. I trust his judgment and he does a terrific job with my teeth. As I am advanced in years, and he has had to deal with some sensitive conditions in my mouth with outstanding results. I highly recommend their practice.
Have you ever thought you would take the time to give a dentist a review...let alone 5 stars? Well, me neither, until now. My business is all about relationships, so I pay attention when someone else values and understands that relationships are everything too. Joey Merritt, not only gets it, he embraces it. His actions and professionalism forced me to leave a dental practice that my entire family was immensely happy with when one emergency issue was treated with immediate concern at the expense of his personal time. Prior to Joey meeting me in a bad moment, the only thing we knew about each other was that my wife played tennis with his mom. What I learned after that about him was more than enough to immediately come home and tell my family that we had a new friend and dentist for life. True story.
I LOVE Dr. Merritt! He's so kind and compassionate. He's an incredible dentist! His staff is also on the same level. I've been going there for years. I first saw Dr. Vlass, then Dr. Merritt when he joined the practice. I can't recommend them enough!!
I feel that the staff listens to my concerns when I call and they try to schedule me as soon as possible. When I am seen I am confident of their care of my teeth and dental concerns. The staff is very professional! I have been seen by Dr Vlass and Dr Merritt and both are very caring and exceptional dentists. This is an outstanding dental practice! I love my dentists!!
