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.

If you're not completely satisfied with your smile, you don't approach the world in the most confident way. You may struggle to feel comfortable showing off your teeth, which leads to hidden smiles and missed opportunities for friendliness. Your attitude towards your smile may even be making you come off as a less expressive, shy person. Our Schenectady dentist wants every patient to possess a smile he or she adores. Your smile should look great and make you feel great.

What are my options for transforming my smile? Won't I have to undergo some complicated cosmetic dentistry?

Altering your smile doesn't need to be complicated. With porcelain veneers, we're able to create new tooth surfaces in just two appointments.

Veneers are thin shells that bond to the front of  your teeth. Porcelain allows the veneers to be so thin that very little tooth reduction is needed to create room for the restorations. This reduces your need to wear temporaries between your first and second veneer appointments, and also reduces the need for anesthesia. The veneers may be made in any shape or shade. Should you decide to receive veneers on multiple front teeth, you may choose to go a few shades lighter than your natural teeth to permanently whiten your front teeth.

Porcelain veneers can change your teeth in the following ways:

  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Lengthen short front teeth
  • Whiten discolored teeth resistant to hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening
  • Reduce tooth sensitivity
  • Straighten crooked teeth

Porcelain veneers may be applied to any number of your front teeth. These beautiful alterations will last upwards of ten years. Learn more about how porcelain veneers could perfect your smile by contacting our Schenectady dentist. Your days of feeling anything but pride for your smile will soon be over.
