Common cosmetic dental procedures can correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. Also, they can change the overall shape of teeth—either teeth that are too long or short, have gaps, or simply need to be re-contoured. Often dental bonding is considered in the following situations:
To repair: decayed, chipped or cracked teeth
To restore: renew discolored teeth or close gaps
To reshape: lengthen or contour teeth
To reinforce: protect an exposed root caused by receded gums
Bonding is a procedure in which tooth-colored material is used to close gaps or change tooth color. Of all cosmetic dental procedures, including veneers and crowns, bonding can be the quickest and most affordable option and is usually accomplished in one office visit unless multiple teeth require attention. Dr. Pizzino or Dr. Sirotinski will discuss with you the best options for your cosmetic dental restoration.
