What Does it Do?

Cosmetic tooth bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the affected tooth or teeth. Our skilled dentists carefully sculpt and shape the resin to correct imperfections, such as chips, gaps, or discoloration, and achieve a natural-looking result that blends seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. Bonding can be used to improve the appearance of individual teeth or to enhance the overall aesthetics of your smile.

Symptoms of Needing Cosmetic Tooth Bonding

  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Small gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Irregularly shaped or uneven teeth
  • Desire for a more attractive smile

Treatment Process

Cosmetic tooth bonding is a quick and minimally invasive procedure that can typically be completed in a single dental visit. Our dentists will first select a shade of composite resin that closely matches the color of your natural teeth. The tooth surface will then be prepared and conditioned to ensure proper adhesion of the bonding material. The resin is applied, shaped, and cured using a special light to harden it into place. Finally, the bonded tooth is polished for a smooth and natural-looking finish.
