Dental Bonding – Tooth Bonding in Bernardsville

Bernardsville Dentist Serving Morristown, Basking Ridge, Mendham, Chester, and Far Hills, NJ

If you have a minor chip or a gap in between your teeth and you don’t want braces, dental bonding could be right for you.

Dental bonding can correct teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Crooked
  • Unevenly spaced
  • Stained and unresponsive to tooth whitening
  • Structurally damaged from tooth decay

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is when a composite resin filling is placed on your front or back teeth to fix imperfections. Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb will select a composite resin material that matches the color of your natural teeth and then apply it.

At Proud to Smile Dentistry, we use CEREC technology to design, create, and place restorations in one visit. This means that if you have a larger problem and you need customized porcelain fillings, for example, we can create them in one visit.

The Procedure

We will start with preparing your tooth, creating small grooves in your tooth that will help the composite resin successfully bond to your teeth. Next, we will apply a conditioning solution plus a bonding agent that act as a strong adhesive to hold the bonding material in place. The putty-like, tooth-colored composite material will then be placed and sculpted to fix your problem areas. Several layers of the composite material are usually needed for the most natural-looking results. Once applied, each layer is hardened with a special curing light. After the final layer of composite resin is applied, it is shaped to match the contour of your natural teeth. Composite resin comes in a variety of shades, so you will have a match that is functional as well as attractive.

Advantages

One of the best things about dental bonding is that the results look and feel natural. Before composite resin was commonly used in dental offices, if your tooth became damaged or decayed, it was often repaired with a silver amalgam filling, which are unattractive and require some of your tooth’s surface to be shaved down so that the silver restoration can be placed. Composite requires only a very small amount of your tooth to be prepared, therefore saving much more of your natural tooth. If you are bothered by cracks, chips, or spaces in your teeth, please contact Proud to Smile Dentistry by calling (908) 888-9858 or filling out our form. Our tooth bonding specialist serves patients from Bernardsville, Morristown, Basking Ridge, Mendham, Chester, Far Hills, and nearby areas in New Jersey.
