Dental Bonding
Salem, MA

Reasons for Bonding

Dental bonding involves the application of a putty-like substance known as composite resin. Composite resin can be used to repair a chipped, fractured, or discolored tooth. It is also one of the most common materials used as dental fillings to repair areas of decay. Unlike veneers, dental bonding can be completed in a single appointment. This makes it one of the easiest and least expensive ways to make a cosmetic modification. For this reason, it is often the ideal choice for minor issues, such as chips and fractures.

Dental Bonding Procedure

Before we begin the bonding procedure, we will use a shade guide to select a composite resin that best matches the color of your tooth. Next, we will slightly etch the surface that is receiving the bonded material. Once the tooth is properly prepared, we will apply the composite to the tooth. Dr. Pamela Maragliano will mold and smooth out the material until we achieve the proper shape. We then use an ultraviolet curing light to harden the composite and expedite the bonding process. After the composite is hard, we will trim any excess, and polish the material until it matches the shine of natural enamel. All in all, the procedure only takes about 30 minutes to an hour!
