The Art of Dental Bonding in Garden City

added on: February 11, 2013 | By: Dr. Nancy Tobin

Accidents happen, and one accident that’s mostly an annoyance is breaking off part of a tooth. It can be caused by biting down on a hard food, or a metal filling can break or fall out. We hope you aren’t using your teeth to open things, but that’s a big risk as well!

If you haven’t experienced cosmetic dentistry yet, you may be surprised to learn that a broken tooth, and many other dental needs, can be quickly and easily repaired in just one visit to the dentist with dental bonding in garden city. It’s one of the most versatile methods to:

  • Fill cavities with non-metal, tooth-colored restorations
  • Refine the shape of a tooth or close minor spaces between teeth
  • Lengthen a tooth that is shorter than the rest of your teeth
  • Cover a badly stained tooth

Because it requires minimal preparation of the tooth, and can be completed in 30 to 60 minutes, it sounds like a simple procedure. In some ways, it is. But, to make cosmetic changes in your smile with dental bonding, the dentist needs advanced training, superior skill, and an artistic sensibility

Dental bonding is achieved by sculpting and shaping a custom-colored resin that’s hardened with a special light. It requires considerable skill to create bonding that’s strong enough for chewing, thin and translucent enough to match your teeth, and adheres tightly enough to prevent any food or liquid seeping in between the bonding and your tooth.

Dr. Nancy Tobin at Tobin Dental Care in Garden City has advanced and refined her skills at some of the most well respected facilities, such as the Dawson Center for Advanced Dentistry. You can trust that when your dental bonding is completed, you won’t be able to see the difference between the bonding and our other teeth! Call our Garden City dental office at 516.747.2535 today!
