Bonding & Composite Resins

You know that gap between your front teeth - the one that 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. Even if your natural teeth fall far from your expectations, it does not mean you have to give up on your life's ambitions. At Yurovsky Dental, you can say goodbye to the gap, and hello to that natural-looking beautiful smile which you have always dreamed of. Dr. Yurovsky can make that space disappear painlessly and effortlessly in one visit through the treatment of cosmetic dental bonding.

Dental bonding is a great cosmetic dentistry option if you are looking to achieve a beautiful 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 decay and damage, giving you a smile that you can show off proudly. Our team of professionals has treated many patients, with his or her individual goals, aesthetic targets and budget for the procedure. We know there is no such thing as “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to dentistry which is why to consider all of these factors before detailing a treatment that fits all of your requests. 

Bonding of composite resins is a procedure performed in order to correct issues with the appearance of your teeth. The procedure performs functions such as fixing discoloration, minor decay, or deformities which have affected the structure of your teeth. This method is ideal for small corrections where most of the tooth is healthy and stable.

A tooth-colored resin and composite, rather than metal fillings or restorations, are used during this correctional 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 color of the resin 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

Procedure

For minor dental bonding procedures, the process can usually be completed within one appointment at our dental office. Dr. Yurovsky will match the resin to the particular color of your teeth within the course of your initial appointment. However, for more extensive alterations, an impression of the area of the tooth must be taken and sent to our lab. Once the final restoration is constructed, Dr. Yurovsky will complete the correctional procedure at your second appointment. Larger, custom-designed restorations are usually composed of porcelain, rather than of composite resin. Your custom restoration is bonded to the teeth on a second visit.

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

Afterwards, 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.
