If you have a tooth that is cosmetically damaged, you do not necessarily need to spend a lot of money to have it repaired. You will want to visit us at Montclair South Dental, to meet with our Montclair best dentist
, Dr. Fara Azar, to see if you are a good candidate to have your tooth repaired with dental bonding.
When a tooth is fixed with dental bonding, it receives the same type of treatment that a tooth receives when a composite filling is being applied. In fact, it is often the same dental bonding material that is used to fix a damaged tooth. Dental bonding can be used to repair small chips or cracks in a tooth. The dental bonding material will be made to perfectly color-match your tooth so no one will be able to tell the tooth has been treated with dental bonding. The dental bonding material is applied to the tooth in thin layers which need to be completely dried before the next layer is applied. For this reason, the tooth bonding procedure can take a bit of time, but it is usually completed in just one dental visit by our Montclair best dentist. If you have a tooth that is cosmetically damaged and needs more expensive repair, our dentist may recommend instead that your tooth is cosmetically fixed using a porcelain veneer. A dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain which is made to be permanently attached to the front of your tooth. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin but extremely strong, and will last for many years. For more severe cosmetic tooth damage, our dentist may recommend that the tooth is covered with a porcelain crown. A porcelain crown will cover the tooth on all sides and will also strengthen the tooth and protect the tooth, as well.
When you have cosmetic damage to a tooth it can have a real negative impact on your smile. However, with dental bonding many cosmetic dental problems can be easily and cost-effectively fixed by our Montclair best dentist
