Our dentist in Jackson Heights, NY offers cosmetic teeth bonding as a conservative treatment for minor cosmetic imperfections and tooth damage. Dental bonding is a simple and pain free treatment that your dentist can complete during one dentist appointment. Drs. Bruce and Richard Corbin often recommend it because it is the most economical and conservative option. Other options such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns require a significant amount of tooth structure to be removed where bonding does not.

- Close teeth gaps
- Fix chipped or broken teeth
- Fill small cavities
- Fix misshapen teeth

- Improve the appearance of stained teeth
How Tooth Bonding Works
Dental bonding is a fairly simple and routine procedure that can be completed in a single visit. During your appointment, your Jackson Heights, NY dentist will first need to prepare the tooth. They will gently etch the tooth to roughen up the surface. This will help the composite resin bond to the surface better. Dr. Richard or Bruce will then apply the resin to the tooth and shape it until it looks completely natural. Our dentists in Jackson Heights, NY will then use a curing light to harden the resin to the tooth’s surface.
Dental Bonding for Kids in Jackson Heights, NY
