Composite tooth bonding can be the perfect solution for patients who have minor cosmetic concerns or tooth damage, or younger patients not ready for a more permanent solution such as dental veneers. An experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Bard Levey can provide tooth bonding that will look natural and blend beautifully with your smile.
Is Tooth Bonding Right For You?
Dr. Levey will meet with you to perform a dental exam and discuss your personal goals when it comes to the aesthetics of your smile and longevity of results. Tooth bonding is effective in addressing minor tooth damage and imperfections such as gaps between teeth or discoloration.
- Completed in one visit
- Only removes a small portion of tooth surface
- Economical alternative to dental veneers
In some cases, when considered a necessary treatment for tooth decay or damage, tooth bonding may be covered by dental insurance.
Tooth Bonding: What To Expect
The tooth bonding is typically completed in one visit to our Croton On Hudson dentist office. Dr. Levey will begin by gently removing as little tooth surface structure as possible to ensure a good result. Combining the artistry and skill acquired through years of education and experience, he will sculpt the composite resin onto the tooth and create the desired shape.
After curing the composite with a special light, your tooth will be polished for a smooth texture and natural look. Tooth bonding can last for up to 10 years with good oral hygiene and routine dental care.
