Dental bonding, also known as tooth bonding, is a quick and cost effective way to address a number of cosmetic and general dental problems. Tarrytown dentist Dr. Wanda Mejia can use dental bonding to improve the appearance of teeth that are:
- Irregularly sized or shaped
- Slightly crooked or gapped
She can also use this treatment to protect roots exposed by receding gums and to strengthen and protect teeth that are:
- Weakened by decay or large fillings
- Chipped, cracked, or broken
How dental bonding can serve your needs is best determined during your appointment with our experienced Tarrytown cosmetic dentist.
If you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mejia, please contact Advanced Dentistry of Tarrytown online or call (914) 332-4402.
About Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is able to serve a number of purposes without requiring much tooth preparation. Made of composite resin that can be colored and molded to fit seamlessly into your smile, it requires little more than a slight roughing of enamel prior to placement. This allows dental bonding to produce remarkable results while still protecting the integrity of your tooth.
It is applied in layers and hardened with a special light in between. After the final layer has been applied, our Tarrytown cosmetic dentist will sculpt and polish the bonding to produce a completely natural looking end result. This process can be completed in a single office visit.
While bonding will need to be touched up over time, proper care can allow a single treatment to provide years of service. Dr. Mejia will be happy to discuss how to care for dental bonding during your regularly scheduled appointments.
It is a fast and effective way to address many dental issues, but it is not as strong as porcelain veneers or dental crowns. During your appointment Dr. Mejia will carefully assess your smile, discuss all of your options, and help you determine if dental bonding is right for you.
