In some cases, dental bonding is considered a more cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers. Bonding can address many of the same dental concerns as veneers; however, bonding is not as durable as veneers.

Your satisfaction is important to our team of dentists at Nesconset Dental Associates. Before any treatment is performed, we are sure to explore all your treatment options with you and recommend the best solution for your smile.
For dental bonding, we often use white colored fillings because they offer patients the most realistic solution for their dental concerns. White fillings come in a wide range of shades which all patients to achieve natural-looking results.
If dental bonding is right for you, we will explain all aspects of your care before your treatment, so you know what to expect. Bonding is typically performed with no anesthesia, but we are sure to take the proper steps to ensure you are comfortable throughout your appointment. We may use a local anesthetic to numb the affected area before your treatment begins.
A special solution is applied to the affected tooth to create an adequate bonding surface; this process is also referred to as etching. Once we prepare the affected tooth, we will then apply a tooth-colored resin is and shape the material until the desired aesthetic is reached. After the resin is formed and molded, the bonded material is cured using a special UV light.
After the bonded tooth is cured, it is gently polished and shined to create a seamless finish. Patients can enjoy their new bonded smile immediately after their appointment.
A bonded tooth can last many years with proper care and maintenance. Be sure to practice proper oral hygiene to improve your dental health and protect the teeth.
