Tooth Bonding in Hamilton & Lawrenceville
Tooth bonding in Hamilton, NJ is a highly affordable cosmetic dentistry option that can address a number of dental ills, including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Tooth discoloration
- Small gaps or spaces between teeth
Hamilton, NJ dentist Dr. Joseph Ricciardi can even use a durable resin material that is tooth-colored to reshape your teeth, giving you a more uniform smile.
Unlike some other cosmetic dentistry services, tooth bonding generally does not require anesthesia. The process rarely takes more than an hour per tooth; in fact, we can complete it in far less time. Tooth bonding can last for years with proper care.
Depending on the extent of damage and other factors, tooth bonding can be an alternative to more involved cosmetic dentistry treatments such as veneers. Dr. Ricciardi will be happy to review all of the options with you in his office, assessing the factors that are important to you and helping you make an informed choice.

How Does Tooth Bonding Work?
A dentist working with the resin material used for bonding procedures is almost like a sculptor working with clay or plaster.
Dr. Ricciardi will first lightly roughen the surface of your tooth and then apply a conditioning liquid, both of which help the bonding material cling tightly to the tooth. He then carefully molds the material and smoothes it out to produce the desired effect, whether it is covering a chip or fixing a misshapen tooth.
He uses a special light to harden the material and obtain a strong “bond.” Finally, Dr. Ricciardi performs some final shaping and polishes the material so it closely matches the appearance of your other teeth.
