Tooth Bonding An Overview

Chipped teeth, cracked teeth and minor cosmetic imperfections can be addressed with tooth bonding, a relatively simple procedure performed in our Westborough dental office. Dr. Daljeet is an experienced cosmetic and restorative dentist that can restore your smile with tooth bonding. She will blend materials with your overall appearance and protect the integrity of your tooth structure.

Tooth bonding is an economical alternative to dental veneers and other more complex restorative or cosmetic treatments. It is often the perfect solution for younger patients and those who prefer to makeover their smile without the cost and time commitment of veneers. It is commonly recommended to address:

How Does Tooth Bonding Work?

Tooth bonding is the application of a composite resin material to the surface of a tooth which is cured and sealed using laser generated heat energy. Dr. Daljeet has the experience and artistic eye for balanced aesthetics necessary to provide results that look natural and complement your smile. She gently sculpts the composite into place and works with you to ensure your bite is comfortable and functions naturally.

With proper dental care and good oral hygiene, tooth bonding can last for up to 10 years- sometimes longer. The location of the bonding, the severity of tooth damage and lifestyle habits will impact the length of your results. Touch ups can address minor damage to the bonding.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

The tooth bonding procedure is similar in many ways to a dental filling. Our team will clean the area, apply a numbing agent or use the Wand to anesthetize the area to be treated without using needles. Dr. Daljeet will remove any damaged tooth structure and prepare the surface by etching the enamel to attach the composite.

After gently sculpting into place, Dr. Daljeet will work with you to adjust the bonding material for a proper bite and natural appearance. Once complete, the material is hardened in place and then polished for a smooth texture and natural appearance.
