About Dental Bonding
To perform dental bonding, Dr. Herskovits will carefully select the shade of dental resin that most closely matches the natural color of your teeth. Next, he will treat your teeth with a mild acid solution. This painless process will produce microscopic fissures in your teeth, creating a stronger bonding surface for the dental material. Next, the dentist will coat your teeth in a bonding agent before applying the dental resin. Next, he will sculpt this resin to achieve a natural look that closely matches the appearance of your surrounding teeth. After he has concealed all imperfections and achieved the desired results, Dr. Herskovits will harden the material with a curing light, trim any excess porcelain, and polish the surface of your teeth.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding can be used to conceal a variety of imperfections, including:
Gaps between teeth
Worn or unusually shaped teeth
Small or mildly crooked teeth
Dr. Herskovits can typically complete the entire procedure in one office visit, making it fast and convenient to achieve a smile that looks healthy, symmetrical, and attractive.
Dental bonding is also affordable, offering results similar to porcelain veneers at a lower cost. Eventually, you may need a touch-up to maintain the results of bonding, or you may wish to consider a more durable solution, such as veneers or crowns. During your initial consultation, Dr. Herskovits will discuss your goals and analyze your smile to recommend the treatment or combination of treatments that will best meet your expectations.
Candidates for Dental Bonding
If you feel self-conscious about any superficial imperfections in your smile, and you are in generally good dental health, you may be a candidate for bonding. Dr. Herskovits will treat any other conditions, such as gum disease or dental decay, before performing bonding or any other cosmetic dentistry procedure. After all, the health of your teeth and gums are the foundation of a beautiful smile.
