Tooth bonding is a great option for people who want to do aesthetic dentistry but really don't need a full-mouth makeover. What we do instead is we can go in and selectively use white-colored filling, that's what bonding is, onto the front of the tooth, the top of the tooth, the side of the tooth, and cover either an area of decay, or maybe it's an area that's brown or yellow stained that you wish to get rid of, and the rest of your teeth are white and you want that area to match the rest. We can go on in and do selective bonding into those areas so that we can change the shape and even the look of that tooth to become a natural, just like the rest of your teeth look.

Issues Tooth Bonding Can Improve
It is a highly versatile cosmetic option. Here are just some of the smile issues dental bonding can conceal or repair:
- Misshapen or worn-down teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Pits and grooves in the surface of your teeth
Our Tooth Bonding Process
Tooth bonding is a procedure in which we carefully place tooth-colored resin onto the surfaces of your teeth to improve their shape and color. Once the material is in place, we will use a special light to harden the bonding material.
Depending on your situation and how many teeth you wish to improve, the entire dental bonding procedure will typically take only one appointment.
In some cases, we may recommend dental veneers as an alternative to dental bonding.
Providing You with Dental Sedation & Comfort Options
There shouldn’t be any discomfort associated with dental bonding so we will not need to use any anesthetic to numb your teeth before starting your procedure.
If you are nervous, however, we can relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options.
We also provide headphones and ceiling-mounted TVs in every care room so you can enjoy your favorite shows while we improve your smile!
