Newton Wellesley Dental Partners in Newton, MA offers dental bonding to patients who have chipped, broken, and discolored teeth. Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that improves the aesthetics of the teeth by bonding a tooth-colored resin material onto a tooth. Dental bonding is one of the most straightforward and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. Unlike veneers, which fix similar anomalies, dental bonding can be accomplished in a single appointment. There’s no prior customization required beforehand, and as such, you can leave with your “brand new” teeth within a few minutes.
At Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, our greatest joy is to see our patients walk out of our offices with smiles on their faces. If you have been hiding your chipped, broken, or stained teeth, we can help to improve and perfect your smile so you can be proud to show it off. Give us a call today, and let’s arrange your dental bonding appointment.
After a preliminary examination of your teeth, our dentist in Newton, MA will use a shade guide to determine the composite resin color that will most closely resemble your natural teeth. After that, the dentist will slightly etch or abrade your teeth, and apply a conditioning liquid to prepare your teeth for the bonding.
Once this is done, the dentist will apply the composite resin material, which looks like putty, onto your tooth. The dentist will then shape and smoothen the composite resin until it’s just the perfect fit for your tooth. To quicken the hardening process, our dentist will beam a UV light on the resin. After hardening, the dentist will continue to trim and polish the resin until it achieves the desired natural look.
This entire process takes about 30 minutes to an hour per tooth to complete. You will not require anesthesia unless the dentist is bonding a decayed tooth that needs prior treatment or cleaning.
