Bonding & Composite Resins

Do you know that gap between your front teeth—the one you have had for as long as you can remember? When it comes to confidence, a pearly white smile is of the essence to allow you to meet life’s challenges more successfully. But, even if your natural teeth fall far short of your expectations, it does not mean you have to give up on your life’s ambitions.

With dentist Dr. Renee Yurovsky, you can say goodbye to the gap and hello to that natural-looking, beautiful smile you have always dreamed of. Using cosmetic dental bonding, Dr. Yurovsky can make that space disappear painlessly and effortlessly in one visit.

Bonding and Composite Resins Dentist

Dental bonding is a great cosmetic dentistry option if you are looking to achieve a beautifully rejuvenated smile free of chips, cracks, or other flaws. This type of dental procedure uses a tooth-colored, durable resin material that is bonded to the tooth for a smile that is both strong and healthy-looking.

Dental bonding can be used to repair the appearance of teeth that have suffered tooth decay and damage, giving you a smile that you can show off proudly. Our professionals have treated many patients with different goals, aesthetic targets, and budgets for the procedure. We know there is no such thing as “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to dentistry; this is why we must consider all of these factors before detailing a treatment that fits all of your requests. 

Composite resin bonding is a procedure performed to correct issues with the appearance of your teeth. The procedure performs functions such as fixing discolored teeth, minor tooth decay, or deformities affecting your teeth’ structure. This method is ideal for minor corrections where most of the teeth are healthy and stable.

A tooth-colored resin and composite, rather than metal fillings or restorations, are used during this corrective procedure. This results in a more aesthetically pleasing look for your teeth. The resin itself has similar properties to a tooth’s natural enamel. Dr. Yurovsky will also make sure that the resin’s color is adjusted to match the specific color of your teeth.

Bonding is an excellent technique for correctional improvement to fix your teeth’s appearance.

Bonding & Composite Resins Explained

Dental Bonding Procedure

The process can usually be completed for minor dental bonding procedures within one appointment at our dental office. Dr. Yurovsky will match the resin to your teeth’s particular color within the course of your initial appointment. First, however, an impression of the tooth area must be taken and sent to our lab for more extensive alterations.

Once the final restoration is constructed, Dr. Yurovsky will complete the correcting procedure at your second appointment. Larger, custom-designed restorations are usually composed of porcelain rather than composite resin. Your custom restoration is bonded to the teeth on a second visit.

Composite Resin Bonding

During the composite bonding procedure, a mild etching solution is first applied to the natural tooth enamel to prepare it to receive the restoration. This solution roughens the surface, which will allow for a stronger bond between the tooth and resin.

Afterward, the resin is placed on the tooth and treated with light, which activates bonding. Dr. Yurovsky then sculpts the resin to the desired shape and polishes the area.

Following the completion of the treatment, the dentist will instruct the patient on how to care for the newly bonded tooth. When it comes to caring for your bonded teeth, you should follow your normal dental hygiene regimen but pay extra attention to them. Your bonded teeth may be more susceptible to damage or neglect, but you may increase their longevity with a healthy lifestyle and good oral hygiene. With proper care and cleaning, bonded teeth can keep their strength and natural look for years.
