New York City Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a fast, effective way to improve the appearance of your smile by correcting a variety of dental problems. If you want an award-winning smile and you are looking for ways to boost your confidence, Dr. Braverman is here to provide the cosmetic dental services you need. Every patient receives top-quality care and a personalized treatment plan.

Composite bonding can change the look of your teeth dramatically and Mal Braverman DMD FADFE will let you know if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Dental Bonding: What to Expect

During your initial consultation, Dr. Braverman will complete a thorough evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. You will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and preferences for the dental services, ensuring that the bonding is designed to meet your desires. Later, an appointment will be scheduled for the bonding treatment.

Usually, only one appointment is needed to complete a bonding treatment. During your visit to our office, the teeth are first prepared by applying a weak phosphoric acid solution to the surface of the teeth. This step is important to create a rougher, more porous surface to help with the strength of the bonding.

Next, a composite (plastic) resin is placed strategically on the surface of the tooth. This resin is contoured and hand-shaped to create the right size and appearance for your smile. A special curing light is used to harden the materials; then, additional shaping is completed. Finally, the bonding surface is highly polished to create a natural, beautiful appearance.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

Our team offers a variety of dental restorations, giving patients the option to choose the right treatments based on their needs and preferences. It is common for people to select bonding as an alternative to other treatments because dental bonding is less invasive and faster than veneers or crowns.

Here are some of the benefits you can expect from dental bonding treatments:

  • One Appointment: Bonding can be done in a single visit, which is much faster compared to veneers that require multiple visits (since the veneers need to be manufactured in a dental lab).
  • Affordability: Bonding is more affordable compared to other restorative treatments. It’s not necessary to spend a lot of money to create the smile that you desire.
  • Minimally Invasive: Bonding is minimally invasive and only requires a small amount of tooth reduction for the treatment. In comparison, crowns and veneers require a larger portion of the tooth enamel to be removed for the treatment.
  • Natural Appearance: The dentist prepares a resin mix that matches the color of your natural teeth. You won’t be able to tell the difference between the natural portions of the tooth and the bonding that has been added.
  • Painless: Bonding is painless, making it easier to relax during the treatment. In most situations, a local anesthetic isn’t even required.

Composites: Advances in the Dental Industry

Composite dental treatments have been used for years, but the technology has continued to advance and improve. As a result, composites used today are exponentially better compared to treatments in the past. The chemical make-up of the materials has changed, resulting in stronger bonding.

Additionally, bonding agents have been enhanced, helping to improve the way the composites adhere to the surface of the teeth. These dental industry advances have become widely accepted by NYC cosmetic dentists as a preferred treatment for both cosmetic and general dentistry.
