Bonding

bonding

Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. During dental bonding, a white filling is placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling “bonds” with your teeth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.

Tooth bonding can also be used for teeth fillings instead of amalgam fillings. Many patients prefer bonded fillings because the white color is much less noticeable than the silver amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.

Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and usually can be completed in one visit to our office. However, bonding can stain and is easier to break than other cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers. If it does break or chip, tell your doctor. The bonding generally can be easily patched or repaired in one visit.

 

Good News!

We are happy to announce that Folan Family Dental has re-opened!* We are now located at 540 Gallivan Blvd, Dorchester, just a few steps from our previous office. We couldn’t be happier to remain in the Adam’s Village neighborhood!

We used the same architect and construction company as our previous office and are thrilled with how the new office came out. The current office is slightly larger than our previous practice with five treatment rooms, the latest equipment and technology, a comfortable reception area and for our young patients: a children’s play area.

All the photographs were saved and are now hung up. We have added to our seasonal decorations and believe the office has a “homey” feel to it. FFD now has on-site parking for patients during their appointments. Our practice is located on the second floor, and the building has an elevator.

When you come for an appointment, you will notice many of our staff members have remained with us. We are also excited to have a few wonderful additions to our personnel.

To schedule an appointment, you can call FFD at (617) 265-8393 or send us an e-mail to FolanFamilyDental@gmail.com. Alternatively, patients are welcome to stop by our office, see the practice and book an appointment in person. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you and “catching up”.

*FFD built the new office after a fire in September, 2017 that destroyed our previous practice.
