What You Need To Know About Cosmetic Bonding

Do you have a cracked or chipped tooth? Are your teeth stained? Perhaps you have some teeth that don’t match in size, shape, or spacing. One of the most significant advancements in dental technology is cosmetic bonding, an effective way to correct aesthetic problems and give you a great, natural-looking smile.

Bonding materials come in a wide variety of shades to match your existing teeth. Compared to other cosmetic or restorative procedures, dental bonding is relatively inexpensive. The procedure is comfortable and doesn’t generally require anesthesia. It affects your natural teeth very little and has great versatility.

First, your dentist prepares the tooth’s surface by conditioning it with an etching solution and may reshape it slightly. Next, a durable tooth-colored composite resin is applied to the tooth and hardened with a curing light. More layers are added, sculpted, and polished for a realistic finish. It really is amazing how artistic and lifelike tooth repair with cosmetic bonding can be these days and the results are most often accomplished in just one visit.

Cosmetic bonding can be a permanent solution to restoring your smile. It can also serve as a temporary restoration while more advanced procedures such as porcelain veneers or crowns are planned. And it’s a particularly great solution for kids who chip or break their teeth, a good thing since tooth-related injuries are so common among young children and teenagers.

Are there any disadvantages to bonding? Well over time composite resins can absorb stains just as natural teeth do. The more coffee, tea, or wine you drink, or cigarettes you smoke, the more discolored your composite restorations may become.

If you have these habits, porcelain veneers or crowns which don’t stain and are longer-lasting, may be a better choice for you. Avoid nail-biting, as this habit along with any others that place excessive force on your teeth can cause the bonding material to chip. How well your bonded teeth hold up over time is largely up to you. Adults, teenagers, and children have all enjoyed the many benefits of bonding with composite resin. Is bonding right for you?

Amazing dentist office. Dentist Amir is smart, funny and kind. In fact everyone there is extremely kind, from the front desk to Sarah the dental hygienist to everyone I've met there, but not like overly nice kind. More of a genuine kind attitude you don't find very often. You can tell they actually care about you/your teeth there and they don't push work you don't need. Equipment there is top notch and staff is extremely experienced. Keep up the fantastic work.

I love it here! Best dentist in the Bay area.I had a really bad experience with my previous dentist, which made my jaw issues 10X worse. Fast Forward 2 years, after 1 appointment with Feather Sound Smiles, I not only have beautiful clean teeth but my jaw pain is completely gone! I can't believe it. They taught me how to relax my jaw and not clench all day long. Highly recommended. In & out of a cleaning, under 30 minutes.

Highly Recommend! This place is clean, friendly, professional, and punctual! I interacted with Alex, Dr. Amir, and Sarah. Had genuine conversations with me, gentle with the cleaning process, and spoke about my concerns in depth. Any questions or concerns you may have, this place can guide you towards the right direction. It was my first visit at this dentist office and I will make it my only dentist practice. They don't rush you out, they make you feel comfortable. Great staffing. If you're looking for a professional dentists office, come here.

Being new to the area Feather Sound Smiles was recommended to me. My first visit went smoothly and I couldn’t say enough good things about Dr. Daoud and his staff. They were super nice, friendly and very professional. They have the latest technology on site and my root canal took only a couple of hours from start to finish. I walked out with my permanent crown in place. Phenomenal job!

Absolutely love this dental team! Was totally afraid of going to the dentist after multiple horrid experiences (drilling through tooth, left a particle under a filling, numbed my mouth, allergic reaction). But alas, teeth need to be cared for. Been coming to this office since 2011, absolutely love the team, especially Sarah! She is always so thorough and helpful. I especially like how they don't try to "sell" me anything new and provide me with a tooth care/maintenance plan to help my teeth get healthier between visits. Recommend them to all my friends and family!

This office is clean, comfortable and the staff is extremely friendly and caring! I had a great experience and won’t go anywhere else! I would recommend them to anyone. If you don’t like going to the dentist you should definitely try Feather Sound, they will make you feel right at home! Dr. Daoud was extremely knowledgeable and Emily the hygienist was a pleasure.

Fantastic service from everyone. Establishing as a new patient was an enjoyable process. I went in for a cleaning and was told my mouth was "boring." They gave great information and didn't offer anything I didn't need. Glad I found them.

Excellent experience on my first visit today.! Dr. Daoud was very knowledgeable, personable and up front about my dental needs. Every person I encountered was extremely friendly, warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. I have had an astounding number of dental/orthodontic treatments in my life and this was by far one of my best experiences all around.

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Daoud and his dentistry practice. He and his his staff are excellent, always friendly and extremely professional. His practice epitomizes the next generation in general and cosmetic dentistry. His technology is far superior to any other dentist I've experienced. More impressive is his care and attention to each patient. That's why our entire family has switched and are now patients. I feel comfortable saying he's the best dentist in the Tampa Bay area.

We just moved back to the area and our son recommended Dr. Daoud. For those of you that actually read these...I too had a filling drilled out and refilled. After an accident in the early 70's, I've had copious amounts of dental work completed. Old work sometimes, has to be replaced and with the technology today, the filling replaced yesterday will probably be outlast the car I bought last year and cost a lot less. Lynda greeted me with an early morning smile, Alex led me through the procedures and assisted Dr. Daoud with my filling, and Sara made my cleaning, irrigation, fluoride treatment a dream. Thank you for my first appointment being so comfortable and professional!

Great Dentist! Dr Daoud did a procedure to remove two teeth and place dental implants. He took the time and fully explained each step of the process. Very knowledgeable and I feel I received the best and most advanced care available for dental implants. He did a great job and I am very happy with the procedure and everyone in the office was very professional, friendly and did a great job.

Dr Amir Daoud is hands down one of the best dentists we have ever met. He treated my husband and we're very happy with his quality of work, his personable mannerism, and the lengths that he takes to make sure his patients are okay. We highly recommended him.

This practice truly stands out among all of the places I have been. From exceptional hygienists who go the extra mile to make sure your experience is a good one, to Dr. Dauod taking the time to explain the treatment options that are best for you. It is has been evident on numerous occasions that his advice to me had my best interest at heart. I have had bad experiences with other practices in the past who have tried to put their bottom line first, so it is refreshing to have finally found an establishment that I can truly trust. Thank you for everything!
