Cincinnati Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an alternative to teeth veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged.

Understanding The Dental Bonding Process

The dental bonding process at Shertok Smiles begins with a comprehensive cosmetic consultation with Dr. Shertok. During this appointment, he will examine your mouth and help you understand all of your options for restoring your smile, from crowns and teeth whitening to veneers and dental bonding.

Little preparation is required for dental bonding, so if you decide that this treatment is best for your needs during your consultation, we can get started right away. First, Dr. Shertok will select the proper color of resin to ensure that your bonded tooth matches the rest of your smile. Numbing is typically not required but can be administered if you’re nervous about the procedure to make you feel more comfortable.

Next, the surface of the tooth is roughened to provide a strong surface that the resin can bond to. After this, Dr. Shertok will apply a putty-like dental resin to your tooth, and he will mod it into an ideal shape. When the resin is shaped beautifully, he will use a special UV light to harden it. Finally, it will be polished to match the reflectivity of your natural enamel and fit in perfectly with the rest of your smile. This entire procedure usually takes about 30-60 minutes per tooth.

The Benefits Of Dental Bonding

Bonding is a popular cosmetic procedure due to its many benefits. Here are just a few of them:

  • Takes just one appointment – Unlike some other cosmetic treatments, like cosmetic crowns and veneers, dental bonding is completed in just one appointment. You can get immediate results, and even have multiple teeth treated at once during a single visit.
  • Completely non-invasive – Dental bonding, in most cases, does not require anesthetic because there is no surgery or drilling involved. That means it’s an ideal treatment for patients who have dental anxiety or do not like the idea of cosmetic dental surgery.
  • Affordable and inexpensive – Bonding is typically more affordable than alternatives like crowns and veneers. In addition, it may be partially covered by insurance when restoring a tooth that has been damaged by tooth decay.. Ask your insurance provider for more details.
  • Versatile treatment option – Dental bonding can treat gapped teeth, cover up stains, repair chips, improve minor tooth damage, and more. It’s very versatile, making it a good treatment for most cosmetic conditions.
