What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding, also known as composite bonding or cosmetic bonding or teeth bonding, is a fast, easy and minimally-invasive procedure that fixes numerous dental issues such as teeth that are slightly chipped, cracked or discolored that it cannot be whitened by any other means.
It essentially involves the use of composite resin in addressing different problems. Composite resin is a very durable and flexible material we use to create dramatic improvements to even the most challenging of smiles. This treatment is called bonding because the composite resin material bonds to your tooth.
However, note that if your smile is crooked because of problems with your bite and jawline, this treatment won’t correct it. A visit to our office will help you determine the right dental treatment for you.

What is the process for teeth bonding?
✓ To start the process, you will first have a consultation with us to discuss your aesthetic goals. We may also carry out a physical examination of your mouth to determine if bonding is the best choice for your needs.
✓ If dental bonding is right for you, we use cosmetic resin that’s color-matched to the shade you desire and mold it to the shape of your tooth. Depending on your case, we may use it to cover discolored or misshapen tooth or use it to replace your missing tooth.
✓ Once you approve the appearance of the resin on your tooth, we harden it with a special high-intensity curing light. Finally, we polish the bonded tooth.
