A fresh, bright smile can be yours, with custom cosmetic bonding – all while you experience a completely different type of dental office, built around a superior patient experience. Cosmetic dental bonding involves placing tooth-colored composite material onto the tooth to create a more pleasing look. It is used to produce small cosmetic changes, like repairing chips, cracks, or flaws in teeth. With their expertise in matching and shaping the resin material, our cosmetic dentists consistently achieve stunning results with dental bonding.

Instant Smile Restoration with Bonding

Because of the instant results and affordability, it is a great alternative for many other more extensive cosmetic procedures. Dental bonding can be completed in one visit and creates an instant result. It can be used to address the following concerns:

  • Repairing small chips
  • Restoring a broken tooth
  • Lengthening short teeth
  • Close spaces and gaps between teeth
  • Reshape teeth
  • To cover heavy staining
  • Fix imperfections on the tooth’s surface

No Impressions, No Waiting – Immediate Results with Cosmetic Dental Bonding

The advantage of bonding is that it is an affordable and conservative way to restore a tooth. No impressions are required, and you will not be facing any waiting time. However, if you have teeth that are extensively damaged, or your dentist thinks other dental issues may affect the success and longevity of cosmetic bonding, other options, such as crowns and veneers, may be a more appropriate way to restore your smile.

What is Dental Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a treatment in which a specialized, tooth-colored composite material is applied to resculpt the shape and surface of a tooth that shows damage or is unsightly due to discoloration. The tooth is artistically shaped by our skilled cosmetic dentist, and then hardened and polished.

The Treatment: What Should I Expect?

For the tooth-colored material to be “bonded” to your teeth, the surface of your teeth need to be treated are gently prepared for bonding by applying an etching material that provides better adhesion for the resin. This part of the procedure is painless. After the tooth has been prepared, the bonding material is applied, sculpted, and then hardened with a special light, after which it is polished.

What Are the Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding has many advantages, including:

  • Less expensive than some other types of dental restorations.
  • Immediate results – no waiting, with about one hour needed to restore a single tooth.
  • No anesthesia required for most cases.
  • Conservative restoration

Is Cosmetic Bonding Right for Me?

If you have a minor cosmetic dental issue you want to resolve easily, quickly, and affordably, cosmetic bonding may be right for you. Your teeth can be reshaped, recontoured, and your smile made more attractive and pleasing in a short dental visit. While bonding is not as durable as veneers, the treatment can quickly repair smaller cosmetic concerns.

How Do I Care for My Bonded Teeth?

To keep your cosmetically bonded teeth looking brilliant, always drink water and rinse your mouth after drinking wine, coffee, or tea. They function normally, but we recommend being cautious to not bite down too hard on anything.
