Are you looking to change tooth shape or repair a cracked tooth? Our dental bonding services in Monmouth County, NJ, can help. Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored resin to the tooth, reshaping it, and polishing it for a natural look. It is an effective solution to replace cracked teeth and improve your smile.
Dental bonding is generally not a painful procedure. The process involves minimal tooth preparation and usually does not require local anesthesia. However, if there is a need for repairing a severe crack or extensive tooth reshaping, your dentist may use anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Dental bonding is a durable solution, but its lifespan can vary depending on various factors. On average, dental bonding can last between 4 to 8 years. Proper oral hygiene, regular dental check-ups, and avoiding habits like biting on hard objects can help extend the longevity of dental bonding.
Yes, dental bonding is designed to match the color of your natural teeth. The composite resin used in dental bonding comes in different shades to closely match the color of your existing teeth. This ensures a seamless blend and a natural-looking result.

It should be noted that dental bonding is best used for small cosmetic changes such as when there is an isolated tooth that needs repair or improvement. It is not meant for larger cosmetic corrections. Bonding is a better aesthetic choice than using silver fillings called amalgams and for those that do not want mercury in their mouth. Because bonding is a more conservative approach to fixing a small chip or crack than other cosmetic dentistry procedures, it is often the choice of young adults as there is little to no removal of tooth enamel. It is also an alternative to porcelain.
The process of bonding has improved over time and is considered a very good choice that has an excellent outcome. It can also be used as a temporary correction when you have a long term plan for other more involved cosmetic dentistry. Another big benefit is that it takes less time than other more involved procedures and can often be done in one visit. The results are an improved smile, a more confident smile and relief from any discomfort from a chipped or broken tooth.
