During dental bonding, Dr. Roy Oyangen in Schenectady, NY applies a tooth-colored material to a patient’s tooth. Once the bonding is shaped, the material is hardened with a special light, thus bonding the material to the tooth. When a patient wants to restore the beauty of their smile, our dentist may recommend dental bonding.
Dental bonding may be performed to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Repair teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken
- Improve the appearance by covering permanent stains
- Close spaces between teeth
- Improve the length of teeth
- Repair misshaped teeth
- Protect exposed roots of a tooth
Dental bonding has many advantages. This procedure is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedure. Dental veneers and dental crowns have to be constructed in a lab, but dental bonding can be done in one visit unless multiple teeth are being treated. Dental bonding takes only 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. Dental bonding requires less removal of your tooth enamel when compared to dental crowns or veneers.
