Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding requires the advanced technique and skill of a trained cosmetic dentist. Dental bonding is a direct restoration meaning that the tooth colored composite material is applied directly to the tooth and sculpted for a beautiful, natural looking result.

Many dentists use direct dental bonding for cosmetic dental fillings, also called white fillings. The composite material is applied to the tooth to fill cavities and minor wear or decay. Our dentists are at the forefront of modern dentistry and also use dental bonding in many cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry procedures. Direct dental bonding, or composite dental bonding, can be used to repair cracks, chips, worn edges or gaps between teeth.

Dental bonding is typically completed in a single visit. The procedure is ideal for many patients because it requires minimal preparation, no mold taking or temporaries and generally costs less than other cosmetic dental procedures. Direct dental bonding is often used in combination with other cosmetic dentistry procedures as part of a “smile make-over”.

Composite bonding material comes in a rainbow of tooth colored shades and is very durable and stain resistant. With proper care and maintenance, direct dental bonding treatments can last for many years.

Another type of dental bonding is adhesive bonding. Adhesive bonding is the method used for securing porcelain veneers, bridges, dental crowns, dental inlays and onlays to the teeth.

After the initial exam, our doctors will walk you through your x-rays and intra-oral photos of your teeth, so that you can understand the current state of your oral health. In conjunction with your primary concern, we will walk through a few different treatment options, so that we can restore you to the best oral health.

Take Action. During your first treatment at Vassey Dental Partners, you will be prepared from start to finish. We take the time to answer any treatment questions, utilize a wealth of resources to make you comfortable in the chair, and prepare you for the estimated out of pocket costs prior to treatment. If you have dental anxiety, we will go over several options that will help you have the most comfortable dental experience as possible. Options include nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Step 4

Follow Up & Long Term Care. Our goal is to take care of any necessary treatment and then to have you on scheduled recall visits to have your teeth cleaned. At this visit, we will monitor your periodontal health, complete periodic exams and annual xrays, so that we can diagnose conservative treatment.

I was treated with such kindness from everyone at Vassey. Their main goal was to keep me comfortable. Dr. Lane is a genuine gentleman.

Adelita Serna

amazing staff, I absolutely love Dr. Konwick! She has amazing bedside/patient manners. She is super gentle and makes you feel at ease. I was always hesitant to go to a dental appointment until I had Dr, Konwick work on two cavities I had. Vassey Dental has a great location, they are super gracious, and the office is always incredibly clean. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen. If you are looking for a dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Konwick and Vassey Dental Partners.
