Dental bonding is a procedure where the teeth can be repaired or reshaped with a tooth-colored resin material and cured with light. In addition to being used to lend structural support to areas of the teeth where decay has been removed, dental bonding can be used as a quick, effective means of closing gaps and achieving a more cosmetic result. It can be used to reshape and redefine teeth, masking chips, cracks, stains, and other imperfections to create an entirely new, stunning smile that is free from aesthetic flaws.
At offices in Hamden, East Haven, or Branford, Dr. Gross roughens the surface of the tooth, applies a bonding agent, and then adds the tooth-colored resin material. He then cures the material and polishes until the treated teeth perfectly match the size, shape, color, and texture of surrounding original teeth. As with all cosmetic dental procedures he performs in his practice, Dr. Gross combines his artistic sensibilities with his carefully honed dental skills to ensure the most natural looking, aesthetically pleasing results possible. These results will last for years with proper care.
