The term dental bonding can refer to several different, yet related, dental techniques. Essentially, dental bonding is a procedure in which the dentist attaches tooth-colored dental filling material to a tooth, thus restoring the tooth's natural appearance and function. Bonding conceals natural tooth defects through the application of a thin biocompatible coating on the front surface of the tooth. After treating the tooth surface, our specialists apply a bonding material that is then sculpted, shaped and color-matched to best fit your specific needs. Once the bonding agent hardens the new surface is smoothed and polished to look and feel just like your natural teeth.
Bonding can lighten stains, decrease gaps, and even realign crooked or malformed teeth. We utilize the bonding technique to change the shape or color of a single tooth, or to improve the appearance of your entire smile. Dental bonding can be used to improve the surface of a tooth, to replace tooth structure that has been chipped or broken, or to repair damage caused by decay, illness, or injury.
