What Is Dental Bonding?
Cosmetic Bonding is a specialized procedure that uses composite resin, a tooth-colored material, to address structural imperfections like cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. Our Westchester Cosmetic Dentistry team has mastered the art of applying this resin in a way that looks natural and seamlessly complements your existing teeth.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
- Polishing: We start by polishing your teeth to prepare the surface.
- Application of Phosphoric Acid: This etches the tooth surface, ensuring better adhesion of the composite resin.
- Composite Resin Application: Our skilled team meticulously applies and shapes the resin.
The procedure is so straightforward that anesthesia is often not required, and you’ll see immediate improvements in your smile.
Additional Uses for Dental Bonding
Beyond cosmetic enhancements, dental bonding can also replace amalgam fillings, offering a more natural-looking and durable alternative.
