WHAT IS COMPOSITE BONDING IN ROCKLAND?

Similar to our porcelain veneer installation, composite bonding is another technique used for small cosmetic corrections, including chips, cracks, and discoloration on your teeth. Composite resin, a material that closely resembles natural tooth enamel, is used to fill those imperfections so that you can love your smile more than ever.

HOW COMPOSITE BONDING ROCKLAND WORKS

  • Preparation — Since cosmetic bonding is usually such a quick process, very little preparation time is needed. The procedure is rarely used for decaying teeth, meaning we do not need to use anesthesia to shape the tooth or change its structure. Instead, your Rockland dentist will simply match the resin to be used with your current tooth color using a shade guide.
  • Bonding — After choosing the correct resin color, the actual bonding begins. To help the composite material successfully bond to the tooth, we apply a conditioning liquid to the tooth and mold the resin to the correct shape.
  • Polishing — Once the resin is bonded onto the tooth, we smooth and polish the tooth so it blends in with your already beautiful, natural smile.
  • Finishing — Now that your tooth is free of cracks, chips, and discoloration, we finish the process by hardening the material with a blue light. The last step is trimming and polishing away any imperfections that may have arisen during the hardening.
