Nothing can ruin your day quicker than a chipped tooth. Especially when it's in the front of your mouth! It may not be bad enough to cause pain, but even a small chip is very noticeable and embarrassing. The good news is that Dr. Mark Gladnick has a quick and easy fix for you.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Ideal for repairing small chips and fractures in your tooth, cosmetic bonding utilizes a material called composite resin to restore your smile. Composite is also the material of choice for dental fillings. It's pliable and easy for Dr. Gladnick to work with, so it can be molded and designed to restore your tooth and not be noticeable. What makes it virtually invisible is the fact that it can be custom shaded to match your tooth, so no one will notice your dental work. Composite is very durable and can potentially last for many years with the right home care.

Porcelain Veneers

For patients who may be dealing with larger chips or fractures, Dr. Gladnick may recommend a porcelain veneer. This is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded directly to your tooth. It's also custom shaded to match your teeth, or multiple veneers can be used to enhance your entire smile. Veneers are ideal for repairing other dental issues such as:

  • Discoloration and staining
  • Wear
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps or spacing between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

If you have a tooth that is chipped and in need of repair, look no further than Dr. Gladnick. With over thirty years of experience in helping patients restore their smiles, you can rest assured that you're working with an expert dentist. Dr. Gladnick can determine which type of repair will be right for your needs and get your tooth restored in no time. The result will be a restoration you can trust and rely on.
