New York Dental Bonding
Fix your teeth's smaller issues with dental bonding.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that improves the appearance of teeth by aesthetically covering the surface with tooth-colored materials. Dentist Dr. Lue of New York’s process uses tooth-colored plastic to change the shape, color, size, and position of teeth as well as improving their strength and durability. It's used predominantly on the front surfaces of teeth because these areas show when a person smiles or talks.
Bonding can be performed to:
Repair cracks and chips in teeth
Close gaps between teeth
Cosmetically alter the appearance of discolored, misshapen or misaligned teeth
Dental bonding procedures typically take 1 visit to complete the process; however, follow-up appointments may be necessary. Dr. Lue, dentist in New York, will need to see you again if not all of your dental problems could be completed at once or if dental complications occur.
What are the benefits of dental bonding?
Bonding has been in use for many years and is typically used when there is a small amount of damage to the tooth. However, dental bonding has also been performed more recently to repair larger dental work such as fractured or broken dental crowns and veneers on teeth with generally positive results. In addition to the widened scope of use, the following are also commonly cited advantages by Dr. Lue, New York dentist, of bonding:
Cosmetic advantages for teeth that are chipped, discolored, or slightly misarranged
Inexpensive alternative to porcelain veneers (unlike porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding doesn't require removal of any enamel)
Cosmetic bonding is a removable process, so if you don't like the results, you can always have it removed
Bonding doesn't affect your oral health because there's no drilling or cutting involved
