Tooth Bonding Rockland County, NY

Tooth Bonding An Overview

Dental bonding is a cost-effective way to fix minor cosmetic interactions. This versatile treatment completely transforms a damaged, broken, or dull smile.

At Cosmetic Dentistry Associates, we provide dental bonding, a natural-looking, durable solution to your restorative and cosmetic dentistry needs. We can often use tooth bonding to address these key dental issues.

  • Chipped or cracked tooth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Minor alignment issues
  • Small gaps between the teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

In many ways, tooth bonding is similar to porcelain veneers. They can address some of the same dental concerns as porcelain veneers. However, veneers are a permanent solution to your cosmetic concerns. Although tooth bonding is a great solution, they are less durable than porcelain veneers. We can work with you to determine which solution best suits your needs.

During the bonding procedure, we use a composite resin that can be color-matched and shaped to blend naturally with your neighboring teeth. Dr. Peter Auster and our dental care team will work with you to create the most natural-looking result.

Hudson Valley Magazine has named Dr. Auster “The Face of Cosmetic Dentistry in the Hudson Valley” for the past two years. His advanced training, skill, and expertise make him one of the most sought-after dentists for cosmetic dentistry in Rockland County.

I’m a private, temp dental hygienist and a patient of Dr. Auster. I work part time Monday through Friday at two different offices, and then I temp on Saturday mornings for Dr. Auster. It’s always a treat! Because I see both ends of it, I’m equally impressed – as a patient and as an employee. Dr. Auster is a pleasure to work with, his standard of care cannot be beat. His attention to detail and his thoroughness and his kindness makes him the ultimate dentist in my opinion. Even his employees who have been there for decades all want to be there. That’s a huge difference from every other dental office that I’ve worked for. I’ve learned so much from Dr. Auster’s full-time hygienists.

I had very small teeth when I was younger. After I had braces, I was told to have bonding to fill in the small spaces. I never did that, so everything moved back out of place. I was so unhappy. Because this is my line of work, I needed to smile, but I was too self-conscious. Dr. Auster recommended the laminate veneer on six teeth and bonding on the rest, to match and make everything look more uniform. He was very thoughtful, and it was a great experience. It has completely changed my life. Now I’m excited about my wedding pictures. I actually want to take pictures!


Tooth Bonding What to Expect

At Cosmetic Dentistry Associates, your satisfaction and comfort are important to our team. We take the time to listen to your cosmetic goals and tailor a treatment plan that best suits your needs.

Once we determine tooth bonding is right for you, we will develop a treatment plan and explain all aspects of your care during your first appointment. We can complete your tooth bonding treatment in one visit to our office.

The bonding procedure is typically performed without sedation. However, we take the necessary steps to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your appointment. We may also apply a local anesthetic to numb the area before your treatment begins.

We will apply a special etching solution that creates a proper bonding surface for the composite resin. After the tooth is prepared, we will carefully apply the composite resin. To achieve the desired appearance, we gently shape the composite resin until it blends seamlessly with your existing teeth. Once completed, we will gently polish your bonded tooth to reveal a beautiful, natural-looking glow.

Tooth bonding can last many years with excellent oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist office.

Tooth Bonding FAQs

How long does dental bonding last?

With good oral and dental hygiene, dental bonding can last up to 10 years before it needs to be touched up or repaired. The length of time may vary depending on the material used for the bonding treatment.

Does dental bonding fill cavities?

Some differences exist between getting your teeth bonded and a cavity filled. The main difference is that getting a filling is often related to the health of your teeth, whereas bonding is associated with the cosmetic and aesthetic look of your smile.

Can tooth enamel be regrown?

Unfortunately, no. Tooth enamel isn’t living tissue like hair, skin, and nails. Once it’s gone, it can’t be regrown, but with dental bonding, you can repair your smile to its former glory. Ask your dentist about your cosmetic treatment options.

Does getting tooth bonding hurt?

No, you shouldn’t feel any pain with the dental bonding process. You may only experience some sensitivity in the days following the procedure. We have to roughen your tooth’s surface so the bonding material adheres better.

Can I whiten my bonded tooth?

No, bonding material doesn’t respond to traditional whitening techniques. While the material is stain-resistant, it can still discolor over time. If you’re unhappy with the color of the bonding material, we’ll remove it and replace it with material that we color to match your desired shade.

Am I a good candidate for tooth bonding?

One of the best things about dental bonding is that almost anyone is eligible for it. It’s temporary and can even be used on children’s dental concerns without permanently impacting their smiles. It’s also one of the most affordable dental restorations.
