Dental Bonding in Mullica Hill, NJ

Maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile is important, and dental bonding can be a great way to correct chips, gaps, tooth coloration and more. Located in Mullica Hill, NJ, Raines Dental specializes in this minimally invasive cosmetic procedure.

What is Dental Bonding ?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses tooth colored composite resin to repair cosmetic issues such as chips, gaps, tooth discoloration, or issues with teeth shape. The tooth surface is lightly etched, a bonding agent is applied, then composite resin is sculpted to the desired shape by Dr. Raines.

How does Dental Bonding work?

Dental bonding is a procedure that involves the use of a durable resin material to help restore teeth and improve their appearance. It’s an ideal procedure for those looking for an affordable, quick, and minimally invasive solution to improve the aesthetics of their smile. At Raines Dental, our dentist will use a special needle to apply the resin material directly onto the tooth in small layers. Once the bonding material is applied, it’s cured with a special light for about few minutes.

How long does Dental Bonding take ?

Dental Bonding is a procedure that involves the application of materials to the surface of a tooth in order to restore, repair or improve its aesthetics. The process typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour depending on the type and extent of damage being addressed. This is due to the numerous steps involved in the bonding process, including teeth preparation, selection and application of composite resin materials, curing and post-treatment polishing.

How long does Dental Bonding last?

Sometimes our teeth wear unevenly, sustain minimal chips, or appear more prominent in our smiles than we would like. In such situations, very conservative treatments such as shaping and recontouring can provide a quick and easy result! Dr. Raines will simply smooth out or reshape select teeth using specific dental instruments to achieve a more esthetic outcome. The teeth are then polished, and the bite is checked. In the correct situations, shaping and recontouring can be a very predictable alternative to bonding or more invasive procedures like crowns. Call our office today to see if it is right for you!
