Same Day Dentistry and Dental Bonding

At North Tampa Dentistry, we offer dental bonding as a way to improve the appearance of your teeth and to restore teeth that have been damaged in an accident. In a bonding procedure, the enamel on your teeth will remain intact, making this solution entirely reversible if you choose to use a different type of restoration in the future. The process can be completed in one day by roughening up the surface of your tooth prior to shaping the bonding material. Created to mimic the natural shade of your teeth, it is shaped prior to being hardened in place for a natural looking restoration. This procedure is certainly ideal for children, given how quickly it can be completed. Many adults also use this option when they are pressed for time and looking for an immediate restoration. The only challenge is that the bonding material will not be as durable as a dental crown would be, making it essential to discuss the pros and cons of the procedure.

Same Day Dentistry and Dental Crowns

If your tooth has experienced significant damage, you will likely need a dental crown to restore its appearance and to strengthen it. It is critical that you visit our Tampa dental office as soon as possible after damaging your tooth. If you leave the damaged area exposed, bacteria can infect the center of your tooth. This can create the need for a root canal to be completed. If the infection becomes severe, like a dental abscess, more drastic steps may be required to drain the pus. This is an unfortunate but entirely avoidable situation. If you simply have the damaged tooth restored immediately, the risk of a bacterial infection goes down significantly. When you visit North Tampa Dentistry, we send the case to the lab for crown fabrication so we can produce the fastest results for you.

If you live in the 33618 area and have a damaged tooth, we recommend that you call (813) 430-0933 to schedule an appointment with our dental office.
