Uncompromising Excellence in Dental Care

Enhance Your Smile and Boost Your Confidence with Dental Bonding

With dental bonding at our Brooklyn Heights, NY, practice, our doctors can correct minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, and discolored teeth. This simple and affordable procedure can also add symmetry to your smile by reshaping teeth and closing small gaps. Dental bonding is a minimally invasive cosmetic and restorative procedure that can make a big difference in your smile and your confidence. 

Dental Bonding Candidacy

Bonding is a relatively straightforward procedure. If your overall oral health is good, and you have small cosmetic flaws such as cracked, chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth, you are likely a candidate for dental bonding. 

Dental bonding is a minimally invasive cosmetic and restorative procedure that can make a big difference in your smile and your confidence. 

What to Expect During Your Procedure

When considering dental bonding, the first step is to schedule a consultation with a doctor to discuss your overall cosmetic goals. If your dentist determines you are a good candidate for bonding, our skilled hygienist will proceed with a dental cleaning before beginning the cosmetic procedure.

Next, using a shade guide, your dentist will choose a composite resin color that closely matches the natural look of your teeth. Before applying the resin, your practitioner will prepare the tooth by gently roughening the surface with a special solution. He or she will also coat the area with conditioning liquid to allow the bonding material to adhere properly. Once your tooth is adequately prepared, your dentist will apply, mold, and smooth the resin. Finally, he or she will use an ultraviolet light or laser to harden the bonding and then trim and polish the material. Once the treatment is complete, the bonding will blend beautifully with your smile.

In most cases, it will take 30 to 60 minutes to complete your procedure. If you combine your dental bonding with any other cosmetic or restorative treatment, such as teeth whitening, dental crowns, or dental bridges, your procedure will take longer.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

Compared to porcelain veneers and and cosmetic dental crowns, dental bonding is quite cost effective. However, bonding will not last as long as those more extensive procedures. Avoiding undue stress on the bond will help maintain longer-lasting results. Some other advantages of dental bonding include:

  • Typically does not require sedation 
  • Provides immediate results
  • Composite is carefully matched to the natural look of your smile
  • Minimally invasive, requiring little to no enamel removal
  • Only requires one office visit
