Cosmetic dentistry isn't always a complicated process. While it is possible to have a full smile makeover, our Schenectady dentist finds patients are often more interested in correcting minor cosmetic flaws. Dental bonding is a wonderful option for those seeking small smile adjustments. Bonding can be completed in a single appointment, can strengthen teeth and beautify teeth, and is very affordable. But since dental bonding doesn't sound quite as glamorous as porcelain veneers or dental crowns, many patients don't know what it is. This week's blog post serves as a guide to dental bonding and all that it could accomplish for your smile.

Dental Bonding Is the Quick, Affordable Route to An Updated Smile

Dental bonding involves a piece of tooth-colored resin that is bonded to teeth. Our Schenectady dentist will match the resin to your natural tooth color, making your dental work unnoticeable. Our Schenectady dentist's skill will make for bonding that blends naturally and aesthetically with the rest of your smile. Dental bonding can repair so many dental concerns, including:

  • Gap teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Teeth that require structural support
  • Crooked teeth

The resin may be applied to nearly any tooth area that is not involved in heavy chewing. The process is painless and speedy. Our Schenectady dentist simply shapes the resin so that it will fit with your existing teeth, then bonds it in place. Because dental bonding creates new tooth structure, but does not involve porcelain restorations (a unique combination of factors for cosmetc dental treatments), the bonding can be completed without waiting to receive prosthetics from a lab. There will be no temporaries, and no second appointment.

Your dental bonding work will be with you for years to come. With proper care, results can be especially long-lasting.

If there's something about your smile that you're not completely happy with, contact our Schenectady dentist. Bonding could be your simple answer.

Do you struggle to share your smile with the world? Cosmetic concerns can prevent people from being completely themselves, hiding their teeth and even limiting their social interactions. We want you to be comfortable being yourself. Our Schenectady dentist will work with you until your smile is beautifully, naturally whole and something that brings you pride. One of our greatest aids in our battle against tooth wear and tear is the dental crown. This week, we'll discuss the wide variety of tasks crowns can take on and the ways they perfect a smile.

Dental Crowns' Capabilities

Crowns are similar to veneers, but add more tooth structure and greater security. Often called "tooth caps," crowns surround remaining natural tooth structure and attach new tooth material. This can hide problematic stains, repair teeth missing structure from decay or damage, and change a smile however you would like. Crowns' versatile nature allows them to accomplish so many dental changes:

  • Whiter teeth
  • Straighter teeth
  • A symmetrical smile
  • Reduced tooth sensitivity
  • Stronger teeth
  • Replacements for missing teeth

Dental crowns come in several materials, the most cosmetic being porcelain. Porcelain crowns may be fabricated in any shape and color, and will blend with your natural teeth to form a great smile. Dental crowns are often used in combination with other cosmetic dental restorations to complete a smile makeover.

The Dental Crown Procedure with our Schenectady Dentist

Receiving dental crowns doesn't need to be complicated. The procedure typically spans two appointments. At the first, our Schenectady dentist will reduce the teeth receiving dental crowns so that the restorations will fit. We will bond temporary crowns to those teeth to keep your smile whole until your second appointment. At the next appointment, your crowns will be bonded to your teeth and checked for proper fit and look. You will leave the office with a glorious smile!
