Dental Bonding: The Quick-and-Easy Way to Improve Your Smile

Do you only smile with your mouth closed because of the appearance of your teeth? You don’t need to hide your smile anymore.

Ready for some good news? Here at Rozenberg Dental NYC, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, we offer dental bonding as part of our wide range of cosmetic dentistry services. This quick, noninvasive treatment can transform your smile in just one visit. 

Our gifted provider, Lana Rozenberg, DDS, is a talented and experienced cosmetic dentist who combines science with an artistic touch. She uses dental bonding to reshape and tint your teeth, creating beautiful custom smiles. 

About dental bonding

Dental bonding is a minor, noninvasive procedure, but it can cover up multiple smile imperfections. Here at Rozenberg Dental, we use a material called composite resin. Composite resin is customizable. We can tint it to match your natural teeth and sculpt it to hide your specific dental imperfections.  

This procedure gets its name from the process of the composite resin permanently bonding to your teeth. When dry, the resin matches your natural tooth so that no one can tell the difference between the treated tooth and its neighbors.

Improving your smile with dental bonding

Dental bonding isn’t just fast, easy, and relatively affordable — it’s also versatile. In only one visit, Dr. Rozenberg can apply dental bonding to correct one or more dental imperfections. And, in most cases, you won’t need anesthesia! 

Some of the imperfections we can correct include:

Damage

Cracked and chipped teeth are common dental injuries. Simple things like sports collisions or biting down on hard food, biting the wrong way, or chewing on ice can cause a small chip or crack.

Depending on the severity of your break, Dr. Rozenberg can apply dental bonding to close and seal the damage, restoring the appearance and function of your tooth. Dental bonding is a quick and effective way to repair chips and cracks so you can smile confidently again.  

Gaps and abnormally sized teeth 

Unevenly shaped teeth and gaps are also prevalent dental imperfections. If you don’t like a gap in your smile, Dr. Rozenberg might be able to correct the problem with dental bonding, helping you avoid braces. She can also even out the shape or length of your teeth if any of your teeth have a different shape or size.  

Dental staining

Many factors contribute to tooth discoloration. For example, your morning cup of coffee or tea can stain your teeth. Medications for seasonal allergies, blood pressure, or even mental health disorders can change the color of your teeth. Aging also contributes to dental discoloration since your tooth enamel thins as you age. 

If you have deep, severe dental discoloration that won’t respond to traditional teeth whitening, we can give you whiter, brighter teeth in no time!

Cover fillings  

If you have traditional metal amalgam fillings, you might hate the appearance of the gray or black spots on your teeth. Fortunately, composite resin is an excellent material to fill cavities and restore an even, bright smile regardless. We can even cover or replace any existing fillings or dental work.

The dental bonding process

In many cases, Dr. Rozenberg can perform dental bonding in just one visit. She begins with a thorough dental exam to evaluate your teeth and ensure that bonding is the right treatment for you.

Then, Dr. Rozenberg selects a shade of composite resin to match your teeth. She carefully scores your tooth and applies a special liquid to help the resin bond to your teeth.  

When your tooth is ready, Dr. Rozenberg applies the resin, carefully molding it by hand to match the shape of your tooth or achieve the desired shape. She shines a special light to harden and dry the bonding material

When the bonding process is complete, Dr. Rozenberg checks for any rough or sharp edges and polishes the tooth until it shines like your natural teeth.
