Dental Bonding in Belleville NJ
Here at our office, we offer dental bonding as a restoration service where a tooth-colored resin is bonded to your tooth and cured with an ultraviolet light. This restorative and cosmetic procedure is faster and less expensive than veneers and crowns, which can be beneficial for patients who want to make small, aesthetic improvements to their smile.
Dental bonding can be performed in one office visit since nothing has to be submitted and created by a dental laboratory, unlike crowns and veneers. Additionally, bonding also requires removing less of the enamel compared to veneers and crowns in order to ensure that your teeth look and feel comfortable, as well as having a proper bite. However, since bonding isn’t one of the long-lasting forms of restoration and is less resistant to stains, it’s typically only used for minimal cosmetic touch-ups.
How It’s Done
To accomplish this, your Belleville NJ cosmetic dentist usually takes between 30 to 60 minutes to complete a single tooth. We first determine what color shade your teeth are in order to select a resin that will blend naturally with the rest of your smile. Once this is finished, we’ll prepare the tooth so the bonding material will adhere easier; this involves roughening the surface and applying a liquid conditioner. After this is complete, Dr. Flynn-Nyktas will apply the resin to the tooth and cure it with the use of an ultraviolet light. Finally, we’ll apply the finishing touches by properly shaping and polishing the resin so it fits right and looks great!
