Tooth Bonding Riverhead NY

Tooth Bonding An Overview

Dr. Lotardo offers experienced care for both general dental health and cosmetic dentistry needs. We can help you achieve a beautiful, natural smile with tooth bonding. With over 20 years of experience and a commitment to advanced training, Dr. Lotardo has an eye for the aesthetic when it comes to cosmetic dentistry for your smile.

Tooth bonding can serve both restorative and cosmetic purposes and is often an economical alternative to porcelain veneers. Suitable for a wide range of mild to moderate dental concerns, Dr. Lotardo offers results from tooth bonding that will blend with your natural smile and last for years with good oral hygiene.

Tooth bonding can be used to treat:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

Cost of Tooth Bonding

The cost of tooth bonding is much less than other cosmetic treatments. If it is being used to correct tooth damage or any other dental health concern, it will most likely be covered by your dental insurance. On the other hand, if you are choosing to use this treatment to correct cosmetic issues, that is considered an elective procedure and will most likely not be covered. Bonding is very affordable especially when compared to treatments like veneers. When you meet with Dr. Lotardo, he can assess your situation and recommend the best treatment option that will meet your goals. We accept a wide range of payment options including cash, check, major credit cards, and FSA/HSA dollars. We will do our best to explain all aspects of your treatment and all the associated costs.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

Your tooth bonding procedure will be completed during a single visit to our Riverhead or Roslyn dentist office. It is a very simple procedure compared to other dental restorations with immediate results. With little to no downtimes, patients can enjoy their new smile without damaged teeth. The treatment should last about thirty to forty minutes depending on the number of teeth being treated. After you leave our office, you can resume your normal daily activities.

Dr. Lotardo will begin the tooth bonding process by preparing the teeth. This involves removing a minimal amount of surface structure to allow for the composite material to be sculpted into place. The purpose of this is to create a strong bond between the tooth and the bonding material.

Dr. Lotardo will color match the material to that of your natural teeth by using a shade guide. He will do this to ensure that the bonding material will blend in naturally with the rest of your smile.

The bonding material will then be placed directly on the prepared teeth. Dr. Lotardo will then skillfully sculpt it into the desired shape and size by hand. Once the tooth blends in with your surrounding teeth and you are satisfied with the appearance, the composite resin will be cured with a special light. The tooth will be polished for a smooth texture and natural luster.

Proper oral hygiene and routine dental care can help you enjoy your new smile for many years.
