At our dental practice we have many different specialists on staff who are able to provide you with all types of dental care. When you want to be sure that the dental practice you use is the finest dental practice around, you will want to see us at Fifth Avenue Dental Associates. Many patients come to see us for dental care in Bay Ridge when they either want to get porcelain dental veneers or have dental bonding performed.
Both porcelain veneers and dental bonding are used to correct cosmetic problems in teeth. Our dentist will be able to assess your individual situation and let you know which type of treatment method will best correct your cosmetic smile problem. Just one of our many dentist is Dr. George Diacoumakos. When you make an appointment to come to our dental practice, you will be able to have an appointment with the dentist who provides treatment in your current area of need. Both cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers are two effective ways of fixing teeth with cosmetic problems. However, it does take an expert dentist at our practice to let you know which type of dental care in Bay Ridge will work best for you.
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are made to cover the front portion of the tooth. The porcelain veneers are extremely thin, but they are also very strong. Porcelain veneers are made to permanently cover the front portion of the tooth and can be used if you have a tooth that is chipped or has surface cracks in the enamels. Cosmetic problems may also be able to be treated using dental bonding. When our dentist uses dental bonding, a cosmetic resin is used to cover or repair the tooth problem. You can think of this cosmetic resin as a type of putty which can be molded into shape before it is cured. Once the dental bonding is cured, it cannot be distinguished from your own tooth enamel. Dental bonding can last a long time and is less expensive to get than a porcelain veneer. However, dental bonding is not a good solution for teeth with larger cosmetic problems. The porcelain veneer will be stronger than the dental bonding in many situations. You will be happy to know though, that our dentist is highly skilled in fixing teeth with dental bonding. This is very important whenever you get dental bonding performed, since the success of the treatment largely depends on the dentist’s ability to successfully and aesthetically mold this type of material.
