Dental bonding in Montclair

Montclair best dentist

Ever see an actor smiling on the screen and wish you could have those perfect teeth instead of the chipped or uneven teeth that you may now have? Don’t worry our Montclair best dentist has methods to fix those imperfections. Our doctors at Montclair South Dental frequently use dental bonding as a means of repairing chipped, cracked, uneven teeth, discolorations and injured teeth in our state-of-the-art offices using the latest dental technology.


Dental bonding uses tooth-colored composite resin materials to resurface the front of the teeth, sealing the cracks and improving the appearance of the tooth. Composite resins are a mixture of plastic and glass that gives it a translucent quality the resin bonds or adheres to the surface of the tooth. Montclair best dentist takes the resin that has bonded with the tooth and sculpts it to perfectly match the neighboring teeth in size, texture and coloration. Our doctor starts the bonding process by cleaning the plaque and other debris off the tooth and then etches the tooth slightly to make the surface easier for the resin to attach to. The composite resin in liquid form is then brushed on the tooth and cured with a lamp. Another layer of resin is then brushed on and cured and this process is repeated until the proper thickness is reached. Our doctor will then sculpt the resin into the final shape and proper bite and then polished it.


Montclair best dentist is able to accomplish the whole bonding procedure in just one office visit in an hour or less because there is no need to involve a off-site dental laboratory such as those that would be needed when using other types of restoration like crowns or veneers. Bonding is not the best restoration method for all tooth problems, the cracks or area of delay may too great for bonding and bonding is not as strong or durable as other restoration methods, so it may not last as long. Call our office and let our doctor evaluate the best method of repairing your teeth.
