What is bonding?

Dental bonding is a simple, non-invasive way to improve the appearance of your smile. The bonding process involves placing a tooth-colored material known as composite resin onto your tooth structure. We can match the shade of composite resin to your natural tooth color for a natural-looking effect that blends in beautifully with the rest of your smile. Our dentist shapes the resin to fit the shape of your tooth and then hardens it with the use of a special light. Finally, we polish the bonding to match the natural appearance of your teeth. The entire dental bonding process can typically be completed in just one visit of less than one hour at our practice. In most cases, little to no tooth preparation is needed, so you can rest assured that your visit will be comfortable and pleasant.
