Composite Bonding Florham Park NJ
Dr. Raj Upadya offers cosmetic dental bonding as a conservative treatment for minor cosmetic and functional issues. Cosmetic dental bonding is a simple procedure, typically completed in a single visit.
In dental boding procedures, Dr. Upadya uses a tooth colored, biocompatible composite resin. Similar to a “white filling”, the dental resin is applied directly to the tooth and sculpted into the proper shape and form, then cured using a special light.
Composite dental bonding is used to treat a number of issues including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Discolored tooth structure
Dr. Upadya uses dental bonding whenever possible because it is such a conservative option and does not remove any of the tooth’s natural structure as is required for porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
It is important to remember that dental composites are not as durable or long lasting as porcelain restorations and may need to be retouched or replaced in the future. Also, dental composites are more susceptible to staining from foods and beverages, so special care should be taken to ensure long term success.
