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.
