Chopped, worn down, stained, or misshapen teeth can lead to a host of aesthetic and functional defects over time. Patients looking to get simple, non-invasive, and quick solutions to minor flaws can contact our dentists near you for assistance. Dental bonding is ideal for those who wish to avoid extensive, time-consuming orthodontic and cosmetic procedures.
A bonding treatment can conceal a number of minor flaws and address several minor imperfections. While most patients are ideal candidates for dental bonding, our team of skilled dentists will evaluate your oral cavity before starting treatment.
The material used for dental bonding is the same putty that is used in resin fillings, and the treatment is particularly useful for front teeth restoration. Bonding can improve your smile in subtle ways and can be completed in a single appointment at So Good Dental. Our trained dentists will help you choose a bonding color that closely mimics your natural dental arch.
A bonding treatment can help you sport an attractive and pleasing smile without waiting for several weeks. However, while bonding near you is ideal for rectifying superficial flaws, it cannot be used for extensively damaged teeth; these may require stronger restorations like crowns, bridges, or implants.
There are two types of bonding procedures: direct and indirect bonding.
Direct Dental Bonding
During direct bonding at So Good Dental, one of our experienced dentists will clean and dry the tooth and then apply a conditioning gel to the tooth to help the resin putty adhere to the surface. We will mold the putty, trim its edges, and polish it for the best finish.
Indirect Bonding Treatment
Our skilled dentists in Fort Lee, NJ will first take accurate impressions of your tooth and get the porcelain indirect bonding material prepared from an offsite lab. Indirect bonding materials are much stronger, durable, and more chip-resistant than composite resin putty. Indirect bonding procedures require two dental appointments at So Good Dental.
Patients who have had dental bonding treatment should avoid consuming artificially colored foods and drinks as these can stain the bonding material.
