Patients: Appointment Preparation

Bennardi Barberio General Dentistry return
Good news patients of Dr. Bennardi and Dr. Barberio. Governor Wolf has given us the go ahead to see ALL of our patients with and without aerosols as long as we follow certain protocols. Dr. Bennardi and Dr. Barberio have been tirelessly working to find the proper PPE to not only keep you safe, but their entire team safe. We purchased North 7700 respirators and paid a company from Denver, CO to fly in to fit test us and train us on proper use and disinfection techniques thus making us OSHA certified. Each of our treatment rooms have an air filtration device running with a HEPA filter and UV light that treats the air. Along with our usual sterilization and disinfection procedures, we also will be fogging an all-natural disinfectant at the end of the day and will be disinfecting public places throughout the day. We also will be changing head covering, surgical gowns, gloves, and face shields after every patient. Please click on the Patients:Appointment Preparation link on our homepage and find out what your responsibilities are to keep you, our other patients, and our staff safe.

Thank you for your patience and we cannot wait to get you back on track to excellent oral health.

Composite Bonding


Muncy, PA man smiling about his cosmetic dental bonding.Bonding is a procedure where we apply a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden and polish it. It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged or become stained. These are generally minor repairs that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive means rather than through a more costly dental procedure.

Here's How it Works

Your dentist, Dr. Bennardi or Dr. Barberio, will prepare the tooth surface so the bonding material will adhere. Once it has been applied, it will then be shaped so it has a natural appearance. Then the material is allowed to harden, usually with the help of a light. Finally, the composite is polished and buffed so that the surface is smooth.

This is not a process that is recommended if you are a smoker as smoke causes staining. Also, the material is not as durable as porcelain veneers and crowns so it chips more easily; eventually it may require replacing.

Bonding is a perfectly adequate and more affordable solution to certain dental problems. Dental bonding can take less time to accomplish and may not even require anesthesia. Depending upon the issue, insurance may cover it.

Please don't procrastinate if you have a dental problem but are worried about the time, cost, or pain involved. Perhaps dental bonding can offer you a solution. Give us a call at (570) 546-3419 so we can discuss options with you.
