Cosmetic Bonding | Hoboken, NJ

People often ask when is tooth bonding the better choice vs. porcelain veneers.  If the teeth are perfect and all I am treating is space between teeth then cosmetic bonding is my go to.  This choice is conservative and does not unnecessarily grind away tooth structure.  In the above photos the treatment rendered was nothing more than removing the old bonding (composite) and simply adding composite material then shaping and sculpting it. Careful attention to color is critical.   There was no preparation (grinding) on this tooth.  The results are fantastic.

Bonding can be used to correct chipped teeth, dental fillings, discolored teeth and even crooked teeth.  It is a material that is biologically compatible with the human body and when used properly can help reduce Periodontal disease (gum disease), tooth sensitivity, tooth decay and tooth fracture.

Fluoride Standards for Children Revised | Pediatric Dentistry | Hoboken, NJ

pediatric-dentistry

The American Dental Association now agrees with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry that children under 2 should be using a “smear” of fluoride toothpaste twice a day.

The previous advice for parents was to wait until children were 2 years old to start using fluoride toothpaste. Until then, many parents were using toothpaste without fluoride, or what is often called a “training” toothpaste.

The update in fluoride use was published in the February issue of The Journal of the American Dental Association. The association hopes that stronger preventive measures will reduce the occurrence of cavities in young children.

Parents of young children often wait until age 6 to introduce fluoride toothpaste “because parents don’t think [children] can spit it out yet,” according to a quote in the New York Times by Dr. Jonathan Shenkin, spokesman for the ADA and a pediatric dentist in Maine.
