As a premier dental office in Morristown, NJ, our team at Morristown Cosmetic Dentistry strives to provide our patients with innovative solutions to enhance their smile. Dr. Victor Gittleman has over three decades of experience building natural looking, beautiful smiles.
Sometimes you don’t need extensive care to improve the appearance of your smile. With tooth bonding, we can address many cosmetic dental concerns and restore balance and beauty to your natural smile.
Cosmetic bonding is ideal for patients of all ages and is often described as a cost-effective, simpler solution to porcelain veneers. Bonding can address many of the same cosmetic dental issues as veneers, including gapped teeth, chipped teeth, discolored teeth, and uneven teeth.
Candidacy for Dental Bonding
The first step to determine if dental bonding is right for you is to visit our Morristown dentist office for a consultation with Dr. Gittleman. During your consultation, Dr. Gittleman will asses any damage to your teeth, discuss your cosmetic goals, and explore your treatment options.
In many cases, most patients are ideal candidates for tooth bonding. Bonding offers natural-looking, long-lasting results for many cosmetic issues. Patients choose dental bonding to address these common issues:
- Fixing a chipped tooth
- Covering a stained or discolored tooth
- Addressing cavities
- Fixing misshapen teeth
- Protecting the tooth root
Practicing a healthy oral hygiene routine, eliminating poor dental habits, and visiting our Morristown dentist office regularly can help increase the longevity of a bonded smile. In the event that you are seeking a more permanent resolution to your cosmetic concerns, Dr. Gittleman can explore your options and determine if dental veneers are right for you.
Dental Bonding Process
In many cases, we can complete your dental bonding procedure in one visit to our Morristown dentist office. Usually, no anesthesia is needed to keep you comfortable during your visit. In some cases, we may numb the affected tooth to help keep you comfortable as we prepare the tooth. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Gittleman will explore your shade range to ensure we choose the composite resin that blends seamlessly with your existing teeth.
The tooth is chemically etched to create an adequate bonding surface for the composite resin. Once the tooth is carefully prepared, Dr. Gittleman will gently shape and mold the composite resin onto the tooth. After the desired shape is reached, the composite resin is hardened into place using a special curing light.
When the resin has hardened, it is carefully polished to create a natural shine and luster that resembles a natural tooth.
While dental bonding is not a permanent solution to your cosmetic issues, it can last many years with proper care and routine maintenance. Be sure to practice a healthy oral hygiene routine, visit the dentist regularly, and receive professional dental cleanings.
