What is Direct Bonding?

For years, patients have been turning to cosmetic dentistry treatments to fix dental imperfections. From teeth whitening to porcelain veneers, dentists continue to treat individuals who desire a new and improved look. In comparison to some of the more costly approaches (i.e. porcelain veneers), direct bonding has proven to be a popular option for patients in search of a more cost-effective method of treatment.

Whether it is stains, discoloration, chipped enamel, or small gaps in your smile, direct bonding can be quickly and easily applied, transforming your smile in no time at all. Dr. Newman, who is a cosmetic dentist in Gramercy Park, will use a tooth-colored composite resin to cover your imperfections and blend with your natural smile.

What is the Process?

Known as a considerably less invasive procedure than veneers, direct bonding is completed in only one visit to our office. Dr. Newman will begin by using a shade guide to match the resin to your natural tooth color. Once he has chosen the right shade, he will begin to roughen the surface of your tooth. Then, he will place a special substance on the tooth to ensure the bonding agent adheres correctly.

Once the composite resin is ready, he will place it directly on to the enamel and begin to shape and sculpt it into the desired shape, color, and size of your tooth. Using a curing light, he will place in on the resin, so it can harden into place. To complete the process, he will make final adjustments before polishing and sealing the tooth.
