Achieve a Brighter, Healthier-Looking Smile with Dental Bonding

As an experienced prosthodontist, Dr. Barry Bessler is highly skilled at dental bonding procedures. This treatment can repair minor aesthetic flaws and structural damage, such as cracks, chips, or discoloration. At the same time, the treatment is conservative and does not require alteration to your natural teeth. Dr. Bessler can simply apply composite to your compromised teeth, sculpting and shaping it to conceal blemishes. At Bessler & Kang, DMD, Prosthodontists, we offer personalized and meticulous care. Prior to the procedure, Dr. Bessler will first conduct a complete consultation at his comfortably furnished Wellesley, MA, office. At this time, he can discuss your goals, determine your candidacy, and plan a treatment to dramatically enhance your appearance.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding can be an effective way to repair cosmetic or structural concerns such as:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Discolored teeth, including both external and internal stains
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Minor erosion and worn edges

This treatment is typically most appropriate for areas of low bite pressure. If you have an uneven bite, you may require a stronger type of restoration. Additionally, bonding is not as strong or quite as realistic as dental crowns or porcelain veneers. Nevertheless, it is easy to receive touch-up treatments, if needed. 

The Dental Bonding Process

Bonding is a simple, but effective treatment. To begin, Dr. Bessler will apply a mild solution to your dental enamel, which will create microscopic grooves in the front of your teeth. This process will not cause discomfort or affect the look of your smile. Next, the dentist will apply composite resin. He will choose a shade that will be virtually identical to your teeth, and he will carefully shape it so that it has a smooth finish. After concealing all blemishes, he will shine a curing light on your teeth to harden the material. Finally, he will trim off any excess composite and polish your teeth.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding

There are many reasons to consider dental bonding. First, the treatment is minimally invasive. In contrast, to place veneers or a crown, your dentist would need to remove a significant amount of dental tissue. Bonding, on the other hand, is a quick procedure that Dr. Bessler can complete in a single appointment. Finally, bonding is reasonably priced, so it can be a good alternative to veneers if you are on a budget.

Dental bonding can repair minor aesthetic flaws and structural damage, such as cracks, chips, or discoloration. At the same time, the treatment is conservative and does not require alteration to your natural teeth.
