Dr. Sivi Jones has a great deal of experience in dental bonding, and can provide his patients with high-quality, well-matched repairs for chipped, discolored or cracked teeth as your family dentist in Irvington NJ.
Dental bonding is a procedure that utilizes a composite resin (tooth-colored material) to cover flaws in your teeth. A thin coating of bonding agent (dental adhesive) is applied to the surface of your tooth. Our dentists sculpt, color and shape the material to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light hardens the composite material and the surface is finely polished.
What Can Dental Bonding Do?
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- Close spaces between teeth
- Make teeth look longer
- Change the shape of teeth
- Protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede
Dental Bonding, Veneers or Crowns?
For some of the above situations, veneers and crowns can be better solutions for cosmetic work than dental bonding. Dental bonding is usually a less expensive solution but does not resist stains as well as crowns or porcelain veneers and is not as strong.
