Dental Bonding

Do you suffer from misaligned, chipped, cracked or discolored teeth? Suffer no more, with Back Bay Family Dentistry dental bonding treatment. If you’d prefer not to get veneers, dental bonding may be a great option for repairing your smile.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure typically chosen instead of veneers. It can be helpful with restoring damaged, discolored or disarranged teeth you may have. The plastic resin used for dental bonding is not as strong as your normal tooth enamel and may be more susceptible to staining, chipping or other damage; for that reason, we require that you maintain healthy dental habits. However, with the right care, dental bonding typically lasts 3-5 years before needing maintenance from a dentist.

How Can I Get Dental Bonding?

The first step to getting tooth bonding at our D’Iberville dental office is to call our staff and schedule an appointment with either Dr. Parker or Dr. Miner. At your visit, you can expect a thorough dental examination and any digital x-rays if necessary. Afterward, your dentist will then discuss the treatment options available for your situation. For dental bonding you can typically expect:

  • The tooth to be prepared by light etching.
  • A bonding liquid will then be applied.
  • After the liquid has set, plastic resin is applied to the tooth.
  • Your dentist will sculpt and shape the resin into the desired tooth shape.
  • The resin will be trimmed, smoothed and polished to give a natural appearance.
