Find out how this simple cosmetic procedure can restore your smile

It’s annoying when little discolorations or cracks in our teeth seem to affect the overall appearance of our smiles. Luckily your Chatham dental bondingcosmetic dentists Dr. Domenic Riccobono and Dr. Vicki Cohn are here to provide an array of cosmetic treatments like dental bonding that could repair small flaws and improve your smile.

Stained teeth: Not all stains and discolorations will respond as effectively to professional whitening treatment. Internal stains caused by excessive fluoride exposure, direct trauma or taking certain medications are best treated through other cosmetic treatments like bonding. Plus, some patients experience tooth sensitivity and don’t feel comfortable getting teeth whitening. In this case, bonding allows your dentist in Chatham, NY to cover over these stains with this tooth-colored resin.

Chipped teeth: Whether eating hard foods or through an injury or accident there are many reasons a chipped tooth can occur. It’s important to prevent the tooth from sustaining further damage, and the bonding material will allow us to restore the tooth back to its normal appearance.

Misshapen teeth: Another benefit to composite resin is that it can also change the shape and size of your teeth. Bonding can make teeth look more even or add more width or length.

Gaps between teeth: If you have small gaps between teeth it can certainly take away from your smile’s appearance. You may think your only option is braces, but if you are only dealing with minimal gaps we may be able to cover these gaps using dental bonding.

Crooked teeth: While bonding can’t fix more serious crookedness, if teeth are slightly out of alignment you may not need to consider braces as your only option. With bonding resin, we can reshape your teeth to make them appear straighter and more even.

Cracked teeth

Crunching down on ice or experiencing a facial injury can leave you with small fractures or cracks in your teeth. While these cracks may be so small that they don’t actually impact your smile’s function they can affect your appearance. Luckily, we can use dental bonding to hide these cracks.
