Tooth Bonding An Overview
Dental bonding is a cost-effective way to fix minor cosmetic interactions. This versatile treatment can completely transform a damaged, broken, or dull smile.
At Cosmetic Dentistry Associates offers dental bonding as a natural looking, durable solution to your cosmetic and restorative dentistry needs. In many cases, we can 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 not as durable as porcelain veneers. We can work with you to determine which solution best suits your needs.
During the bonding procedure, we use a composite resin which 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.
Dr. Auster has been named “The Face of Cosmetic Dentistry in the Hudson Valley” by Hudson Valley Magazine 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!
