Interested in getting a discolored or damaged tooth restored? Jersey Smile is delighted to offer state-of-the-art dental bonding to our esteemed patients.
Tooth bonding is a procedure involving the application of a tooth-colored, putty-like resin to mask dental abnormalities or discolorations. The results are completely natural, and no-one can tell where the natural tooth ends, and the bonded material begins.
Visit a reputable dentist near you for information on bonding and smile makeovers.
Our dentist in Berkeley Heights, NJ suggests that dental bonding is used for patients who have the following cosmetic issues:
Bonding procedures can be used to correct discolorations that cannot be minimized with standard teeth whitening.
The dentist will use composite resin to smooth out the tooth and camouflage the crack. When skillfully done, the chipped tooth is well concealed when you smile.
For patients who have small, unsightly gaps between teeth, we will apply bonding material to the insides of the tooth to ‘extend’ them a little to close the gap.
If your teeth are too small and causing you embarrassment, we can use bonding procedures to lengthen the tooth to let in blend in with the rest of your natural teeth.
Similarly, bonding can be applied to the biting surface of the tooth to make it appear longer (this is slightly different from enlarging a small tooth).
We are happy to offer top-notch dental bonding in Berkeley Heights, NJ.
While bonding is not a permanent solution, it can certainly be a long-lasting one with proper oral care. Patients who follow a regular oral care routine with brushing and flossing keep their bonding intact for ten years or more.
While bonding material is durable, it’s not as strong as natural teeth, and you should avoid biting down on very hard foods like nutshells or ice. If you grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist for a mouthguard to protect your bonded tooth.
