Dental Bonding

What Is Dental Bonding?

A dental bonding procedure is performed by a dentist who uses a tooth-colored material to address minor dental imperfections, such as gaps or chips. Once your dentist applies this material, they then shape it and harden it with light in order to make your teeth look as good as new

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

The dental bonding procedure is a quick, straightforward cosmetic procedure that involves the use of composite resins that are applied to a patient’s teeth. With the help of a UV light, this resin material hardens and sticks firmly to a patient’s tooth to cover up any existing damage.

Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding works best for patients who are experiencing minor/cosmetic dental issues such as discolored, chipped, and/or cracked teeth. Issues like these don’t typically require invasive and extensive restorative procedures; patients experiencing minor gaps between teeth or minor tooth decay can also benefit from dental bonding.

Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth`s surface, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile. This procedure usually can be accomplished in a single visit.


Bonding is often performed in order to fill in gaps or change the color of your teeth. It typically only entails one office visit, and the results last for several years.


Bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping than other forms of restoration such as veneers. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice. Bonding also is used as a tooth-colored filling for small cavities and broken or chipped surfaces.


In addition, bonding can be used to close spaces between teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape. Crowns, also known as caps, are used in cases where other procedures will not be effective. Crowns have the longest life expectancy of all cosmetic restorations, but are the most time consuming.
