Getting a better smile here at DiBona & Scamardella Dental Studio is easy. We offer two outstanding options: porcelain dental veneers and dental bonding. Which is best for you? That depends on various factors, some of which are specific to the individual. A consultation with our dental care in Staten Island NY will lead to a determination.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that strongly resemble the look of your natural teeth, except without the imperfections that you’re trying to cover up. Impressions are taken and sent to the dental lab. They will make your veneers to precise standards of quality and fit. They are placed over the fronts of your teeth by our dental care in Staten Island NY. To do so requires the filing away of a small amount of tooth material in order to keep your veneers even with your other teeth that do not have them. Dental bonding serves the same purpose, but the process is different. For one thing, there is no need to wait for the dental lab. It’s all done right here at our office. As such, dental bonding is typically quicker and less expensive. Instead of porcelain, resins are used. They are soft and therefore easily mold-able. Our dental care in Staten Island NY will shape the resins to meet your needs. Only when you’re happy with the feel and look will the resins be hardened using a special light. Veneers are more durable, often lasting as long as 10 years. Bonding will not have that kind of longevity.
If you are interested in having a more attractive smile, devoid of chips, cracks, discoloration, misshaped or crooked teeth, or gaps that are too wide, the answers are right here from our dental care in Staten Island NY. All you have to do is contact us to book your appointment. We’ll do the rest.
