Manhattan-based smile makeover dentist Dr. Beshar can often use cosmetic dental bonding to repair chips, cracks, discoloration, and other imperfections that can detract from a beautiful smile. Dental bonding also enables Dr. Beshar to alter the shape and size of a tooth or teeth to create a more balanced look. Many of our smile makeover patients find that dental bonding is a more affordable solution than porcelain veneers, and bonding can be completed in just one easy office visit. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile and think dental bonding may help you achieve your dream smile, read on to learn more about this cosmetic dentistry treatment and visit our Smile Gallery to view some examples of smiles Dr. Beshar has transformed using this technique.
The Dental Bonding Process
The first step in the dental bonding process is for Dr. Beshar to gently prepare the tooth or teeth to be treated by lightly etching the surface and applying a special conditioning liquid. Next, Dr. Beshar will apply the tooth-colored plastic resin material and sculpt it into the most desirable shape to complement the patient’s natural teeth. To complete the process, Dr. Beshar will use an ultraviolet light to harden the resin, then trim, smooth, and polish the bonded tooth so that it blends seamlessly into the patient’s smile.
