Dental Bonding in Brooklyn NYC

Chipped or discolored teeth can be embarrassing. You can regain the natural appearance of your teeth through various cosmetic surgical procedures. Tooth bonding is a treatment offered by Starrett City Dental specialists, where tooth-colored resins are applied using adhesives or high-intensity light to restore teeth’ size, shape, and color. This is called tooth bonding because it entails bonding the resin to the surface of the teeth.

Teeth bonding at Starrett City Dental can solve a number of dental problems. Here is a non-exhaustive list of the issues solved in this way:

  • repair and restoration of a destroyed tooth with composite resin;
  • reconstruction of a cracked or chipped tooth;
  • improving the appearance of a discolored tooth;
  • reduction of spaces between teeth;
  • visual lengthening of the tooth;
  • change in the shape of the teeth;
  • protection of the exposed part of the tooth due to receding gums.

Two primary methods for bonding teeth are adhesive bonding and direct composite bonding. Neither procedure typically requires anesthesia, and patient can resume regular activities right after the treatment.

During a direct composite bonding procedure, a Starrett City Dental dentist uses tooth-colored resins to repair and restore the appearance of damaged teeth. The composite material is applied directly to the surface of the teeth and is used to augment the tooth for enhancement. Direct composite bonding is commonly used to fill cavities, close gaps, repair cracked teeth, and build up tooth structure to improve appearance.

On the other hand, adhesive bonding is the process of attaching a restorative material to a tooth. This technique is commonly used for inlays, onlays, bridges, crowns, and porcelain veneers.

Starrett City Dental and its specialist will select any treatment methods based on the patient’s individual needs.

Pros and cons of the process→

The many advantages of composite materials outweigh the disadvantages. The most notable benefit of tooth bonding is its transparency because the tooth-colored material blends seamlessly with the teeth to give them a completely natural look.

The main disadvantage may be the limited lifetime of the composite material, which gives it a shelf life. However, there are bonding materials that last more than 5-10 years.

In addition, smile makeup treatments performed with composite dental adhesives are much cheaper and more effective than other temporary fixes. They are also fast so that you can return to your daily life without obstacles.

Generally, bonding teeth offer a quick, affordable, and effective solution compared to many other smile transformation procedures. Procedures are fully completed in one visit to Starrett City Dental, and the patient won’t have to miss much work.

But, it is better to make the decision to glue the teeth after a consultation, where the dentist will analyze the patient’s dental requirements and offer a smile treatment based on this analysis.
