Have you heard of dental bonding?
Revitalizing the smile doesn’t have to be expensive. While solutions such as dental implants or porcelain veneers are commonly considered when transforming the appearance of the smile, these are not always viable options for every patient. Instead, the team at Montefiore Medical Center may recommend patients consider lower cost, “no fuss” solutions such as composite resin bonding, also referred to as dental bonding.
How does dental bonding work?
The dental bonding process is another way to disguise imperfections of the smile. This material is made of a composite resin and is fabricated to match the color of the natural teeth. By matching the patient’s smile, problem areas can be easily addressed with a single appointment. Dental bonding is applied to a prepared tooth, cured using a specialized light, and then filed and polished to look just like natural tooth enamel. The entire process is done quickly and easily with our dental team, and is an affordable way of enhancing the smile.
Who is a good candidate for dental bonding?
Patients who are in good overall health and are free from periodontal disease and tooth decay may find themselves to be perfect for composite resin bonding! During an initial evaluation with our dental team, patients can learn about this and alternative solutions for their smiles. This is a great way to determine if a patient is a good fit for restorative dentistry options.
Why choose dental bonding for the smile?
Dental bonding has many benefits that make it a reliable choice for many of our patients at Montefiore Medical Center. Composite resin bonding:
- Can last several years with proper care
- Matches the patient’s existing smile
- Is performed in a single day
