Direct bonding is a simple and conservative cosmetic solution for fixing minor smile flaws, such as spots of discoloration, small chips, or thin gaps between the teeth. This procedure typically only requires a single visit here in Torrington, CT. Dr. Graicerstein will apply a special, custom-shaded composite resin to the dental surface and sculpt it artistically into place for a natural-looking result that fits right in. Afterward, patients will see an elegant and recompleted smile in the mirror.
For many of our patients looking to correct minor cosmetic imperfections in their smile, the choice comes down to either porcelain veneers or direct bonding. Which one is best? It all depends on a patient’s specific situation and goals.
For those who want to correct tiny flaws that affect just one or two teeth, then direct bonding is the better choice. It’s faster, more affordable, and delivers truly beautiful results. However, if a tooth has a large stain, chip, or if there is a sizeable gap, a veneer would be the right choice. They are made out of a more solid material and can cover more dental structure with ease. We’ll help you decide which one is best when you come to see us for a consultation! Whichever one you choose, we’ll make sure you absolutely love the results!
