Sometimes an unattractive tooth can take the beauty away from a smile. If this is the case for you, Dr. Sidney Adler is happy to help you with cosmetic dentistry, which is a branch of dentistry that can improve the appearance of your smile. Fortunately, there are many treatments available, and dental bonding is one of those treatments.
Dental bonding can help you if you have a cracked, chipped, broken, discolored, short, or oddly shaped tooth. It can also help you close spaces between your teeth, change the shape of your teeth, and protect tooth roots if they have been exposed.
This treatment is simple, easy, and painless. It typically doesn’t require anesthesia and it usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete, depending on the number of teeth needing improvement. It will first begin with Dr. Sidney Adler roughening the surface of the tooth with a conditioning liquid, which will help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. Then, they will place the resin on the tooth and will trim and shape it. Next, they will harden it with a special light. Finally, they will trim, shape, and polish it to give it the appearance you want.
