Bonding

Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that allows the dentist to reshape or repair your smile using composite resin. Cosmetic bonding is particularly ideal if you’re insecure about the appearance of your smile or want an affordable alternative to invasive and more costly procedures such as orthodontics or veneers. With bonding, chipped or uneven teeth can be repaired easily and affordably, restoring your self-confidence. Additionally, bonding is often completed in a single visit and doesn’t require any anesthetic! 

As with most cosmetic procedures, bonding will wear and discolor over time, eventually needing to be replaced; however, bonding is very durable and typically lasts many years.  

Reasons for cosmetic bonding:

  • Closing spaces or gaps
  • Fixing chipped teeth
  • Fixing decayed teeth (teeth with cavities)
  • Lengthening uneven teeth
  • Protecting roots exposed by receding gums
  • Restoring badly discolored teeth

What does dental bonding involve?

To begin, the dentist will isolate the teeth included in the procedure, etching them in preparation for bonding.  After applying the etching conditioning liquid, the surface of the teeth will have small crevices that allow the tooth stronger adhesion with the bonding agent. 

The dentist will then apply a bonding resin which cements the composite in place.  After several layers of tooth-colored composite are applied, the composite and bonding resin are shaped and hardened with a specially calibrated light.  Once the composite is fully set, the bonded areas are smoothed, buffed, and polished to blend in naturally with the surrounding teeth.

Testimonials

Dr. Mirkin is a trustworthy dentist with a gentle touch. I went in for a cleaning yesterday and was pleasantly surprised by how thorough she was with my consultation. She noted a few problem areas but was not pushy, which was refreshing. She took a lot of time discussing which teeth were most in need of work, and others that may need work down-the-line. I highly recommend Dr. Mirkin to anyone looking for a caring and professional dentist. Thanks Dr. Mirkin!

Since going back to school I lost my dental insurance. I found Dr. Mirkin through groupon and read great reviews so decided to give her a try. She is a very caring, attentive dentist that truly cares about your overall health as well as your teeth. She spends quality time explaining things and making you feel comfortable. She referred me to the dental choice program which is basically a discount program for those without dental insurance. Her prices are reasonable and her services are great. I recommended her to my boyfriend who started seeing her for dental care and we will not go anywhere else now. Also, Jessica her secretary is very friendly, responds quickly to phone calls and online appointment requests and or messages. She has made dealing with this office smooth and efficient.
