What is dental bonding, and how is it used?

Home » Dental Bonding

Dr. Tripthi Shetty of Modern Dental Studio in the East Brunswick, New Jersey area is a board-certified general dentist with experience providing general, cosmetic, and restorative dental care solutions to new and returning patients and families. She sees patients regularly who have imperfections in the smile they would like to address with cosmetic dentistry solutions. That includes flaws on the teeth near the front of the smile. Often, she may recommend using composite resin bonding to enhance the smile and provide improved appearance and self-confidence.

What is composite resin bonding?

Dental bonding is a popular way for patients to enhance their smiles and quickly address common imperfections. This composite resin material is used in many situations to improve patients’ confidence in their smiles. This material may be used to:

  • Disguise gaps between the front teeth
  • Reshape a tooth that is chipped or cracked
  • Cover teeth with permanent staining and discoloration
  • Fill an area of tooth decay

Who is a good candidate for composite resin bonding?

Patients with imperfections or other issues within the smile, such as tooth decay, may want to ask Dr. Shetty about the benefits of using composite resin bonding materials to enhance the smile. Composite bonding can be used on most patients.

What can I expect from my dental bonding appointment?

The use of dental bonding to enhance the smile is a straightforward appointment. First, the tooth or teeth will be prepared for the dental bonding material. This may require roughening the surface or removing a small amount of tooth structure. Once the tooth is ready, the material is applied and shaped to meet the patient’s specific cosmetic needs. A high-intensity light will then be used to harden and bond the material to the tooth. The final step is polishing and perfecting the material to match the surrounding teeth and look natural within the smile.
