Dental bonding is one of the fastest and least expensive cosmetic procedures. It can be an easy fix for teeth with minor flaws, such as chips, cracks, small areas of decay, discolorations, small gaps, minor abnormalities or exposed roots. Our dental bonding dentist can help you learn if you are a candidate for dental bonding.
Our expert in dental bonding will numb the area if necessary and remove any decay that is present. A tooth-colored resin material will be applied in layers and shaped to match the surface of your tooth. It will be cured with a special light that bonds the resin to the tooth, and then the material will be polished to match the other teeth. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to one hour per tooth from start to finish.
Dental bonding is one of the easiest and most affordable cosmetic procedures, and minimal natural tooth structure must be removed. Anesthesia is rarely needed unless a cavity is present. Unfortunately, dental bonding material is not as stain resistant as porcelain, which means that heavy smoking or coffee consumption could lead to discoloration. Bonding material is also less durable than other types of restorations, which means it may need to be replaced earlier than dental veneers or crowns. Because of the limitations of dental bonding, our dental bonding dentist often recommends the procedure only for minor flaws or damage.
Maintaining good dental hygiene after any procedure is important. Our expert in dental bonding recommends that our patients brush twice a day and floss once a day for the best results. Biannual dental checkups and professional cleanings are equally important. Although bonded teeth do not need special treatment or care, you will need to avoid bad dental habits, such as nail biting, chewing ice or using your teeth as tools. If your bonded tooth or teeth have sharp edges or feel rough, contact us for an evaluation. With proper care, dental bonding can last five to ten years or longer.

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
