Dental Bonding in Brooklyn, NY
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
Cosmetic bonding can improve the shape, color, contour, and position of your teeth, enhancing the appearance of your smile. Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin is applied layer by layer to the surface of your teeth, filling in spaces or covering small irregularities like white spots or grooves. Bonding can be used to restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misarranged and is often used to eliminate problems with a patient’s smile. It is also useful when correcting defects, such as stains from antibiotic use and unnatural spacing caused by tooth shifting or gum disease.
The procedure for dental bonding can often be completed in a single office visit, improving the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since resin is not as strong as your own tooth enamel, cosmetic bonding is more likely to stain, chip, or break than natural teeth over time.
Who Is a Candidate for Dental Bonding?
As with any treatment, a consultation and evaluation by Dr. Teichman or another member of his talented team is necessary to determine whether or not cosmetic bonding would be appropriate for you.
