Dental bonding is a common procedure used to correct a variety of aesthetic flaws with your smile. During the procedure, a tooth-colored resin material is applied to your tooth and molded to the desired shape of your tooth. It is then hardened using a special light to provide durable, long lasting results.
Hoboken cosmetic dentist Dr. Frank DePaola often recommends dental bonding as an ideal option to correct the following issues:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Fill small gaps between teeth
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Alter the shape of teeth
- Make teeth look longer
- Address discoloration that has not responded well to tooth whitening
The best way to determine whether dental bonding is the right option for you is to speak with Dr. Frank in person. Please call 201-792-9400 today to schedule your consultation at our Hoboken cosmetic dentistry office.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is one of the easiest and most affordable cosmetic dentistry solutions available. Other options such as dental crowns and porcelain veneers must be custom crafted in a dental lab, requiring multiple office visits to complete the procedure. However, dental bonding only requires one visit to our Hoboken cosmetic dentistry office to deliver the exceptional results you desire.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of dental bonding is that it is one of the most conservative options to address your aesthetic goals. Only a small amount of tooth structure must be removed for the procedure, decreasing the likelihood of tooth sensitivity. The procedure is virtually painless, and no anesthesia will be necessary.
Your Dental Bonding Procedure
Your dental bonding procedure can be completed in less than one hour. Dr. Frank uses a natural shade selection system to ensure beautiful aesthetics and a natural appearance. After preparing your tooth, Dr. Frank will apply the bonding material incrementally, sculpting it into the desired shape. A special light is then used to harden the bonding material to your tooth. Dr. Frank will make any necessary adjustments to the size and shape of the bonding material and polish it to match the sheen of your natural tooth.
You should care for your bonded tooth the way you care for your other teeth – by brushing and flossing daily. In order to prevent the bonding material from chipping, it is best to avoid biting on hard materials such as ice.
