Dental Bonding Overview

Most of us would like fast results with whatever we do, and nowhere does this seem more significant than with cosmetic dentistry. At Ballston Dental in Ballston Spa, NY, we know that most of our cosmetic dentistry patients are hoping for fast treatment and quick solutions to issues such as chips, cracks, stains, discoloration, unevenly sized or gapped teeth, and more. Fortunately, we have a single answer for that long list of issues, and it can be done quickly – typically in a single visit. Known as dental bonding, it is a fast and affordable answer to consider.

Understanding Dental Bonding

As your preferred cosmetic dentist in Ballston Spa, we offer cosmetic bonding as one of the quickest and most effective solutions to many different issues. It is done using a durable composite resin that is colored to match your teeth. It is carefully and skillfully applied to the tooth or teeth and hardens while bonding to the tooth. When complete, a treatment looks entirely natural, but the appearance of the tooth or teeth is greatly enhanced.

We can use dental bonding to correct:

  • Fractures, chips, and cracks in your teeth
  • Decayed teeth that do not require extensive fillings
  • Discolored or stained teeth that cannot be treated by whitening
  • Misshapen or unevenly sized teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them
  • Teeth with exposed roots due to the condition is known as gum recession
  • Teeth with amalgam (metal) fillings

The process of dental bonding is amazingly fast and simple. You come to the office and we then begin planning to address the issue. If a tooth requires a filling or other treatment, we may numb the area, but often this is unneeded. We then prepare a tooth for treatment and then apply the composite resin, shaping it as needed. We use specialized lights to cure the material and then do any final polishing and finishing.

The dental bonding can be used just like the natural tooth and will give you many years of service if you take good care and provide proper brushing, flossing, and oral check-ups.
