Improve your smile with dental bonding for teeth gaps in Montville, NJ
If you think you need to spend months or years in braces to improve the look of your smile, you’ll be happy to learn about dental bonding. Dr. Jon Ferrari offers this cost-effective alternative to braces and veneers for cosmetic issues such as teeth gaps, staining, and chipped teeth so patients in Montville, NJ, can improve the appearance of their teeth in a single visit.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a composite resin that’s designed to mimic the shine and appearance of your natural teeth. While it was designed to fill cavities, the resin is easy to mold, and Dr. Ferrari can skillfully shape it to improve the appearance of your teeth. In addition to improving the look of your teeth, dental bonding creates a seal against bacteria, so it can help prevent cavities on areas with worn enamel.
Dental bonding is cheaper than either braces or porcelain veneers, and it can be used to lengthen teeth, close gaps, repair chips, and cracks, or disguise mildly crooked teeth. Patients who choose veneers will need to have tooth enamel removed to place them, but dental bonding doesn’t require any drilling or grinding for a beautiful restoration. This conservative treatment is easily reversible without permanently altering your teeth.
What to expect from your procedure
Dental bonding typically takes about 30-60 minutes per tooth, and it is a totally painless procedure that doesn’t require a local anesthetic. Dr. Ferrari will polish the tooth to prepare it to stick to the bonding, then shape the composite resin directly on your tooth. Next, he’ll use a special light to help it harden and polish it again to help it blend in perfectly with your smile.
Dental bonding can last up to 8 years on average, but with proper care, it can last much longer. Dr. Ferrari will educate you on the best way to care for your teeth for the best results.
