If you have missing or unaesthetic teeth, restoring them with a cosmetic dental procedure may the best way to achieve a better smile. And if you are looking for a dentist in Bay Ridge that offers a wide array of cosmetic tooth restoration options, especially if you’re considering porcelain veneers or dental bonding, then the dental office of Fifth Avenue Dental Associates is for you. We demonstrate the highest competence, knowledge, ability, and proficiency in both the surgical and restorative aspects of implant and cosmetic dentistry, as well as in critical aftercare.
There’s a considerable amount of overlap in the issues treated by both porcelain veneers and dental bonding. If your tooth or teeth aren’t missing and merely have gaps, chips, stains, misalignments, if there is damage to the enamel, or if teeth are misshapen, then these issues can be addressed using these cosmetic treatments from our dentist in Bay Ridge. Both dental bonding and veneers are natural in appearance, and are a perfect alternative for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of dental porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth. Dental bonding, on the other hand, uses cosmetic resin to cover or repair flaws. The resin, which is similar in form to putty, is applied by your dentist and then shaped and molded before it is hardened or cured by a special light. Once cured, the resin is difficult to distinguish from your own enamel and will last a long time. One of the benefits of dental bonding is that the process is relatively inexpensive and can be completed in a single day. Which treatment is right mostly depends on the extent of the damage. For smaller repairs, dental bonding is usually a better option because it requires less alteration of your tooth and can be completed on the same day. If you have more extensive damage that needs to be fixed, veneers may be the right choice. Overall, veneers have a more natural look than dental bonding, especially when bonding is applied over a large area.
We believe that people look different, teeth look different, and so every patient deserves a customized service. On the other hand, all patients are equally important and treated as friends and family. Our dentist in Bay Ridge will determine the best possible solution to restore your teeth based on your individual needs. Regardless of which method is right for you, restoring and replacing your teeth with cosmetic dentistry will surely restore your beautiful smile.
