Reasons I Would Need Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is one of the least expensive dental procedures that also provide a major impact on your smile. This process shapes and polishes teeth to match the appearance of the surrounding teeth. Patients often choose to undergo this procedure when they are experiencing tooth discoloration, chipped teeth, or gap teeth. Dental bonding can also make the teeth appear longer as well as correct misshapen teeth.

How do I care for my dental bonding?

Drinks and substances such as coffee, tea and cigarettes can stain the resin used on the bonding. Within the first 48 hours of your dental bonding treatment, make sure to limit the intake of these types of foods and drinks.

How do I begin the dental bonding procedure?

Schedule a consultation with Lindner Dental via our contact form or give us a call at 603-944-9196. Our staff will discuss how we select the correct composite resin color to match your teeth. The procedure generally takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the amount of teeth you are having worked on.

Once the correct color is selected, we will score the surface of the tooth/teeth to roughen it. This allows the light coating of a conditioning liquid to adhere to the bonding material. After this, the resin is applied to the tooth, molded and smoothed until it is the correct shape. We will harden the material and further shape the teeth after the bonding material is completely hardened.
