Help repair broken teeth due to decay or trauma

Our Lisbon, Maine, dentist office uses dental bonding to help restore teeth (and your smile) by using a tooth-colored resin material.

Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to restore chipped, discolored, decayed, or cracked teeth. It’s a common dental procedure that is also highly efficient in terms of how little tooth enamel is removed during the procedure.

Dental bonding can be a good fit for some patients, depending on the severity and complexity of the situation. However, it isn’t always the right choice for areas of the mouth that experience significant bite pressure. Dental bonding is also an effective way to temporarily fix minor defects and is often used for cosmetic procedures. Dental bonding is often used to:

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Whiten discolored tooth or teeth
  • Repair teeth that have begun to decay due to cavities
  • Protect a root exposed by receding gums
  • Alter the shape and/or length of teeth
  • Narrow spaces between teeth
  • Serve as an alternative to amalgam fillings

What Is the Dental Bonding Process?

To start, one of our dental professionals will match the color of your tooth to the composite resin. Next, the tooth’s surface will be textured, and then a conditioning liquid will be applied. While the resin hardens, your dentist may do some final shaping to achieve the final, desired effect. The entire procedure normally lasts 30-60 minutes.

Because dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure, anesthesia is typically not required unless the tooth needs shaping before the bonding process. Also, the process typically only requires one appointment since dental bonds are applied on the spot by your dentist, unlike dental crowns and veneers that need to be created off-site in a lab.

"Two Rivers Family Dentistry has been providing dental care to my husband and I for over 25 years to include the many years with the prior owner to that excellent care continuing with the current ownership and staff. There was never a moment we considered leaving this practice. From the dentists to the support staff of amazing hygienists and assistants. And let’s not forget the quality customer service from the front office staff and management. It is always a welcoming place and they are doing an amazing job with the extra protocols in place to keep not only staff but their patients feeling secure and safe. Definitely recommend Two Rivers Family Dentistry!"

"I've had two appointments at Two Rivers recently. One for my periodic cleaning and the second for a filling. What struck me about this office wasn't just that they took all the proper precautions amid COVID, but that this crew was plowing ahead treating their patents as safely and responsibly as possible without the slightest outward hint of fear or worry. Everyone from the front desk was working happily and efficiently to get me through my appointment on schedule. My Hygienist, Kim was simply amazing as were Dr. Fig and his assistant, Sarah. They were about patient care and making sure my dental needs were taken care of in the most professional way possible. I recommend Two Rivers to anyone needing dental care at any time, but especially during this public health crisis, we find ourselves in now."
