Dental Bonding in Brooklyn

Woman smilingHaving chipped or discolored teeth can be a source of embarrassment for many people. Fortunately, the team at Aesthetic Dental is skilled in several cosmetic procedures to help restore the natural appearance of your teeth.

One of the simplest is tooth bonding. There are two methods used: adhesive and direct composite bonding. In both methods, anesthesia is practically not required, and the patient can resume their regular daily routine right after the procedure.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

Direct bonding is when tooth-colored composite resins are shaped and molded on the teeth using high-intensity light to give you a straight white smile. The procedure is fast and easy and can be completed in one dental appointment.

Adhesive bonding is used to attach restorative material to a tooth. This technique is commonly used for procedures such as inlays and onlays, bridges, crowns, and porcelain veneers.

The Benefits

Bonding procedures do the following:

  • Repair and restore destroyed teeth
  • Reconstruct a cracked or chipped tooth
  • Improve the appearance of a discolored tooth
  • Close the gaps between teeth
  • Add material to make teeth look longer
  • Change the shape of the teeth
  • Protect the exposed part of the tooth due to receding gums

The benefit of tooth bonding is its ability to blend seamlessly with the natural teeth providing an attractive smile that’s affordable and more effective than temporary fixes. Unfortunately, direct bonding typically lasts only three to five years before repairs are needed; however, good oral care may extend that longer.
