Dental Bonding Englewood, NJ

Dental bonding might be all you need if you have a discolored, chipped or cracked teeth. The procedure is popular in cosmetic dentistry, and it can enhance the way your smile looks. Your smile is one of the most noticeable parts of your physical appearance, so you want your teeth always looking their best.

Dental bonding is a treatment that consists of the dentist applying composite resins that have been color-matched with the patient's teeth to repair damage or discolored teeth. It is one of the more affordable treatments performed by dentists, and it costs significantly less than getting veneers or crowns.

What to expect when getting dental bonding

Composite bonding is a non-invasive treatment that can be used for cosmetic or therapeutic purposes. It typically does not require the use of an anesthetic unless it is being used to treat tooth decay. Getting a treatment with a composite only requires a single visit to the dentist to restore the appearance of the patient's teeth.

The dentist starts the treatment by selecting a composite that is a similar shade of white as the patient's teeth. The dentist then uses an etching solution to roughen the tooth's surface. This allows for a stronger bond between the patient's tooth and the composite.

The dentist applies the putty-like composite layer by layer. Shaping and hardening each layer as it is applied. The dentist might make some final alterations after all of the layers have been applied before polishing the tooth to complete the treatment.

Below are some reasons why dental bonding might be performed:

  • Fixing cracked, broken or chipped teeth.
  • Repairing damage caused by tooth decay.
  • Increasing the size of a tooth that is shorter than the rest.
  • Closing gaps between teeth.
  • Hiding stains and discoloration on teeth

It takes about an hour for a dentist to restore a tooth. with composite bonding. There are no significant risks associated with dental bonding. Fixing a tooth with a composite can restore its function and it also restores its appearance.
