What is Dental Bonding?
If you take a bad step and trip and chip your tooth or have another kind of accident, or if a tooth has become discolored due to an illness or medication, our dental team at Concerned Dental Care offers bonding to improve certain cosmetic flaws for our patients in Westchester, Yonkers, and surrounding New York City areas. A practical and quick treatment, dental bonding uses composite resin to mask discoloration, reduce gaps in the teeth, lengthen a tooth, and even improve a tooth's shape. If you want an effective treatment to improve your teeth, make an appointment to learn more about dental bonding treatments at Concerned Dental Care in New York City, NY, and surrounding areas.
Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding can treat chips, gaps, cracks, discoloration, tooth length, and more. Dental bonding is a more affordable cosmetic procedure than other cosmetic options such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns and can usually be done in a single visit. It doesn’t need the same amount of prep work as veneers and crowns; however, it isn’t as strong and usually doesn’t last as many years. Dental bonding is ideal for minor flaws, so if you require more extensive improvements, a different restorative or cosmetic treatment may be considered. During your consult, we will listen to your needs and concerns, perform an examination of your mouth, and then discuss your best treatment options.

What Happens During Dental Bonding Treatments?
Dental bonding will typically be performed in one appointment at one of our New York area offices. You shouldn't need any anesthesia, but sedation methods can be reviewed if you have dental anxiety or a strong gag reflex — please bring this up during your consultation so we can discuss sedation options when creating your treatment plan and build additional time into your appointment as necessary.
On the day of your treatment, once you are comfortable in the treatment chair, we will apply the bonding material to the desired teeth with the help of one of our talented dental assistants. The resin will be set with a special light before more layers are added. After the layers of composite resin are complete, we will contour and polish the composite resin and your natural enamel for an even appearance.
What is Dental Bonding Recovery Like?
After bonding, you should avoid foods and drinks that will stain your teeth (like coffee, tea, and tobacco) for 48 hours. It's also important to brush your teeth right after eating to avoid stains. The composite bonding material can also chip, so do not bite down on hard objects like ice cubes, pens, or your fingernails. Bonded teeth need to be cared for like natural teeth with daily brushing, flossing, and mouthwash. Professional dental cleanings at Concerned Dental Care can help to remove stains from the bonding material. With good care, dental bonding can last up to 10 years. At your annual dental exam, we can help you decide if your cosmetic bonding procedure needs to be done again to refresh your appearance.

Is There Insurance Coverage for Dental Bonding in New York City?
Bonding is an aesthetic treatment, so it is generally not paid for by your dental insurance. Our office can talk to your dental insurance company to double-check if it is covered; however, you will probably need to pay for the cost of the treatment on your own. In your consultation, we can go over an estimate of the cost and the different payment options we accept at Concerned Dental Care.
