Dental Bonding Queens / Bayside and Oyster Bay, NY
Cosmetic bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that has been around for quite awhile and is still one of the best ways to repair a chipped, damaged or imperfect tooth. It’s a simple procedure that also happens to be pain-free which makes it a popular choice for those looking to repair a tooth’s appearance.
In whole, cosmetic teeth bonding involves the use of a white paste-like composite resin that is applied over the chipped or damaged tooth that is then hardened using a special light. The greatest thing about this composite resin is that it can be tinted to match the exact color of your tooth so it’s undetectable when used to replace a missing piece of a tooth. The dentist is able to shape it and size it so that it not only matches the shape of your other teeth so that you get a natural looking smile, but more can be added to it to fill in gaps between teeth that you may not be happy with.
To give you a better idea how cosmetic dental bonding will work should you decide that it’s what you want for your chipped, cracked or broken teeth, here is how dental bonding will work in more detail. Your Oyster Bay / Queens dentists, the Corbin's will need to create a rough surface for the composite resin to adhere to and will do this using a special chemical on the tooth or teeth that are having the bonding done. The next step will be to tint the resin so it matches your teeth and then apply it. The dentist will apply the resin in layers and then use the special light to harden the resin. Then you’re ready for the final step which is the shaping and polishing of the resin until you are left with a tooth that looks smooth and natural and matches your other teeth to your satisfaction. That’s all there is to it.
Cosmetic teeth bonding is very safe, effective and painless. As a matter of fact, it is so safe and painless that it can be used on children too.
