Non-invasive Dental Bonding Can Transform Your Smile
Dental bonding is a quick, conservative way to address cosmetic imperfections and provide you with a more aesthetic smile. When you undergo dental bonding at our Farmingdale, NY, practice, Drs. Donald Kahn, Daniel Aldieri, or Angela Ferrari can conceal blemishes with tooth-colored composite resin. Our dentists use a detail-oriented approach to provide results that look natural and blend realistically with your teeth. This affordable and customized procedure can dramatically rejuvenate your smile – and your entire appearance.
Is Dental Bonding the Right Way to Enhance Your Smile?
Dental bonding can correct a range of cosmetic concerns such as:
- Dark or internal stains that will not respond to teeth whitening
- Chipped teeth
- Small or unusually shaped teeth
- Worn edges
- Gaps between your teeth
- Minor misalignment
Bonding and porcelain veneers offer similar results. However, to place veneers, your dentist would need to remove a small amount of enamel. Therefore, if you have suffered tooth erosion, you might not qualify for treatment. You can still undergo bonding if you have lost some enamel. Bonding is also a more affordable treatment, and is preferred by many patients on a budget. The material will not usually last as long as porcelain veneers. However, because this cosmetic procedure is so budget-friendly, it is usually easy to receive re-treatment, if desired.
Bonding can thoroughly transform your smile, concealing a wide array of cosmetic concerns at once. The treatment can enhance your entire appearance, and it may even help you to look several years younger.
What to Expect during Dental Bonding
Before performing dental bonding, your dentist will select a shade of composite that corresponds with your smile. With a wide array of shades to choose from, KFA Dental is sure to find one that is a near-perfect match. A member of our team clean your teeth before coating them with a mild chemical solution. The solution will gently etch your teeth, increasing the surface area to provide a stronger bond for the composite. We will then apply a bonding agent before coating your teeth in the resin. Throughout this step, your dentist will sculpt the material, giving it a smooth surface, concealing flaws, and refining the shape of your teeth. When finished, we will use a curing light to harden the material, and polish your tooth and the bonding for a natural shine.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Bonding can thoroughly transform your smile, concealing a wide array of cosmetic concerns at one time. This innovative cosmetic treatment can enhance your entire appearance, and it may even help you to look several years younger. Though similar to veneers, bonding is a more conservative treatment. Your dentist will not need to remove any enamel prior to your procedure. In addition, bonding is very quick, typically taking as little as 30 minutes per tooth. The procedure also involves minimal discomfort, and most patients do not require anesthesia. Finally, cosmetic bonding is very affordable and can be easily repeated in the future for long-lasting improvement.
