Bonding is a quick, efficient way to fix most cosmetic dental issues. At New Roc Dental, our team can use bonding to correct chips, cracks, gaps, and misshapen teeth. With this treatment, you can enjoy a new and improved smile after just one visit, without having to worry about breaking the bank!
What Does Dental Bonding Fix?
We use dental bonding to fix cosmetic problems in the teeth. Bonding is made of a tooth-colored resin, which we can sculpt onto a tooth to alter its size, shape, and overall appearance. Dental bonding is a great option for patients who have experienced minor tooth damage or who have gaps between their teeth.
Bonding can fix a variety of issues including:
- Cracked, chipped teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
What Are the Differences Between Bonding and Veneers?
Dental bonding and veneers are both very popular cosmetic treatments. We can use these techniques to remove blemishes and enhance the appearance of your smile. Bonding is made of strong resin and is more cost-efficient than veneers. We can place your dental bond in a single visit – often in under one hour! When well taken care of, bonding is a beautiful, long-lasting way to improve your smile.
Unlike bonding, veneers are typically made from ceramic or porcelain and are crafted off-site at a professional dental lab. Veneers are more durable and natural-looking than bonding, but they are also more expensive. Veneers require some of your enamel to be removed, which many of our patients want to avoid.
During your visit, we can discuss your goals, budget, and overall oral health to decide which option is best for you.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
Bonding is one of our quickest cosmetic procedures! Often, we can finish your treatment in just one hour. To begin, Dr. Wynter will prepare your tooth by lightly texturing the surface of your enamel. This is harmless and will help the resin stay attached to your tooth.
The resin starts as a malleable putty. Dr. Wynter will apply the putty to your tooth and sculpt it into its desired shape. To finish, we will harden the putty with a curing light, and Dr. Wynter will make any needed final adjustments.
