Dental Bonding

Dr. Karagodsky uses dental bonding as a quick, cost-effective way to correct minor cosmetic imperfections like chips, stains, and short or misshapen teeth. Dental bonding requires little preparation and minimal removal of existing enamel. The doctor will prepare the tooth and apply a putty-like resin, which is tinted to match your natural tooth color. Then he will shape the resin and harden it with a special curing light. Dr. Karagodsky uses bonding primarily on areas of low bite pressure, like the front teeth. Although bonding does not last as long as porcelain veneers or crowns, with good care it can last for several years before it needs to be replaced.
