Tooth Bonding Nashua, NH

Tooth Bonding An Overview

Nashua dentists Dr. Levesque and Dr. Vogel offer comprehensive solutions for cosmetic and dental health concerns for patients of all ages. Tooth bonding is an economical and popular method for both addressing tooth damage and enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct chips, cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth.

Bonding, or composite resin tooth fillings, is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental materials and technology, bonding usually lasts for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable and attractive solution for many dental problems. Tooth bonding is often the perfect solution for young patients or adults not ready for the commitment of porcelain veneers.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

The tooth bonding process is completed during a single visit to our Nashua dentist office. For your comfort, a local anesthetic may be applied to the area to be treated. If necessary, a small amount of tooth surface may be removed or etched for placing the composite material.

A composite resin is then placed on the affected tooth or teeth. Color matched to your smile, it is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied an ultraviolet light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, natural look.

With good oral hygiene and routine dental care, tooth bonding can last for many years.
