Dental Bonding at Hudson Valley Dental Arts
Bonding is the placement of "space-age" plastic over the teeth to enhance their appearance. Although not as strong as applying porcelain, this procedure is more reversible and less expensive. It can also be done in just one visit. Dr. Hamburg has performed hundreds of bonding cases with wonderful results, giving patients glorious smiles.
The process involves placing a composite resin on the surface of the tooth. This can accomplish many of the same results as porcelain veneers. It is minimally invasive, can be easily altered or repaired, is less expensive, and provides an immediate result.
Dental bonding does have some disadvantages. The tensile and compressive strengths of the material are not comparable with porcelain, which means that the location where it’s used is extremely important. It can also pick up stains from food and drink more easily, making oral hygiene that much more important. It takes a very high skill from the dentist placing the material to get an exceptional result, and that’s just what Dr. Hamburg will provide.
