Erase Aesthetic Imperfections with Cosmetic Bonding
Dental bonding is a minimally-invasive cosmetic dental service that we offer in our Princeton, NJ dental practice to address imperfections such as:
- Chipped or misshaped teeth
- Small gaps in your smile
- Uneven or atypical enamel surfaces
- Severe staining and discoloration
- Uneven teeth
Used alone or in combination with our laser gum recontouring, cosmetic bonding (Princeton, NJ) can help your teeth look fuller and properly sized in just one appointment. Numbing may not even be necessary!
Affordable Princeton Cosmetic Dental Treatment
Bonding uses tooth colored composite (similar to white fillings) to reshape atypical areas of enamel so that the tooth appears properly sized and contoured in a way that it blends in with the teeth around it. Material is added to the tooth, compensating for areas that may be lacking.
Each bonded area is carefully matched so that it isn’t easily distinguishable from the enamel next to it. Bonding works great for heavily stained areas that won’t respond to bleaching. It can also straighten slightly crooked teeth or cover up tiny chips and gaps.
It’s a great option if you’re thinking about cosmetic dentistry but need to stay on a budget!
What to Expect
To have a tooth bonded, our cosmetic dentist in Princeton, NJ will buff the front surface of the enamel to be covered. After prepping the area with special conditioner, Dr. Bestandji will sculpt your restoration by hand from a composite material matched to the shade of your surrounding enamel. Usually, no local anesthetic is required.
The entire procedure only requires one short appointment. As soon as the bonding is cured into place, you’ll be able to look into the mirror and see an entirely new smile. It’s amazing what correcting one minor imperfection can do!
If you have any desire to whiten your teeth later on, we recommend that you do so about two weeks before scheduling your cosmetic bonding appointment. This allows us to match the material to your newer, brightest shade. Being that composite cannot be bleached into a whiter shade, it must be matched properly or changed out in the future if you decide to whiten further down the road. We recommend one of our KöR teeth whitening solutions, which are available in take-home or in-office options.
