Dental Bonding in Midtown NYC

Dental Bonding

What Is Dental Bonding?

Bonding involves application of a composite resin for repairing a chipped, decayed or fractured tooth. Unlike porcelain clays, which require a custom mold prepared in a dental lab, dental bonding can be done in a single appointment. It is sometimes used as an alternative to amalgam filling or for protection of a portion of root that has been exposed on receding of gums.

Why Get Dental Bonding?

Bonding serves the purpose of enhancing teeth structure that are cracked or separated by ugly gaps. Some of the benefits include:

  • It can be completed in one single visit, as compared to other treatments.

  • Less expensive treatment than restorations like dental crowns or porcelain veneers.

  • Little removal of enamel, retaining the natural structure and health of your tooth.

The Process of Getting Dental Bonding

Firstly, your dentist will choose an appropriate resin color that closely matches the one of your tooth or teeth. Once the color is selected, the dentist will carry out surface etching with acid to roughen it. A conditioning liquid is used for light coating of the tooth, which helps in adhering of bonding material. The putty-like resin is applied once tooth preparation is done. Molding and smoothening of the resin is done till the time it is in desired shape. Then a laser or an ultraviolet light is used for hardening the material.

Once hardened, your dentist will shape it further, followed by polishing the material until it complements the shine of the rest of the surface. The overall process can take up to an hour to complete, and you may need additional visits, if you require more than one tooth done.
