Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding NYC, Cosmetic Tooth Bonding

You know that space between your two front teeth - the one you’ve had for as long as you can remember? At SmilesNY, our dentists can make that space disappear painlessly and effortlessly in one visit with cosmetic dental bonding in New York.  Chipped and cracked teeth can also be repaired using dental bonding.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a composite resin material that binds to your natural tooth. It can be used to repair:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Cracks in teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Exposed roots caused by receding gum lines

Who is a good candidate for Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is ideal for small cosmetic corrections. If your teeth have gaps, chips, or cracks, you may be a good candidate for dental bonding in New York. Dental bonding can also be used to cover exposed sensitive roots surfaces and to repair decayed teeth. In most cases, these small repairs can be made in just one visit to SmilesNY.

What are the benefits of Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is one of the simplest ways to improve the overall aesthetic appearance of your smile. Since they are bonded directly to your natural tooth, dental bonds add strength to your teeth and make them less likely to crack or chip. Unlike porcelain veneers and crowns, dental bonds do not have to be specially made in a laboratory. In most cases, dental bonding can be completed in a single office visit.

How is Dental Bonding material applied?

In many cases, dental bonding can be done in one office visit. First, your SmilesNY dentist will isolate the tooth or teeth that need to be bonded. Next, a gentle etching compound is applied to the tooth to prepare the tooth for bonding. This etching solution creates small crevices in the surface of your natural tooth, ensuring that the bonding material will adhere properly and securely to the tooth surface.

After the tooth is etched, your dentist will apply the bonding resin. The resin is applied to the surface of your tooth and acts like a super glue that holds the composite in place. Next the Tooth colored composite is placed in layers as a putty-like compound. In order to ensure a natural-looking outcome, the composite compound is matched to your natural tooth color and carefully shaped to fit the surrounding teeth. Once the composite resin is applied and shaped, the resin compound is “cured” using a special blue light.

During the final phase of the procedure, your SmilesNY dentist will smooth, buff, and polish the bonded tooth so it matches the surrounding teeth. Our goal at SmilesNY is to provide you with a natural-looking tooth restoration using dental bonds.

Are Dental Bonds permanent?

With proper dental hygiene and regular dentist visits, dental bonds generally last from five to 10 years. Bonding differs from porcelain veneers in that over time the composite material loses its luster and darkens due to staining. When this occurs it is time to replace the material.
