Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding in the North Bergen & Passaic Area

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding, also known as tooth bonding, teeth bonding and cosmetic dental bonding, is a 30-60 minute procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied and hardened with a special light to bond it to the tooth in order to restore the tooth or improve a person’s smile. The resins we use have the strength to withstand the stress you place on your teeth in everyday life. Bonding helps restore chipped teeth, fill the spaces between your teeth and cosmetically restore discolored or stained teeth.

Dental bonding is a simple procedure that is usually performed without an anesthetic or a dental injection. In this process, the surface of your tooth is first etched with a special liquid to enhance the adhesive ability of the bonding material. An adhesive material and a composite resin are then applied to the tooth and given the desired shape and finally hardened with the help of safe ultraviolet light. Sometimes, a veneer (custom-shaped tooth covering) may be bonded to the surface of the tooth.

Benefits of Dental Bonding
  • Dental bonding is one of the easiest, quickest and most affordable cosmetic dental procedures available.
  • Dental bonding can usually be performed in one office visit (unless several teeth are involved) as compared to customized tooth coverings like veneers, bridges and crowns that must be manufactured in a laboratory.
  • Dental bonding involves the least removal of tooth enamel compared to veneers and crowns.
  • Dental bonding does not require anesthesia unless it is being performed to fill a cavity.
When to Consider Cosmetic Dental Bonding
  • To repair tooth decay
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To restore discolored teeth
  • To close spaces between the teeth
  • To reshape the teeth
  • As an alternative to amalgam fillings
