What is Dental Bonding?

Watch this video to learn more about how we utilize composite resin material to bond and restore damaged or cracked teeth.

What if you look in the mirror and you see your teeth aren’t quite perfect, but you don’t want to make the investment of veneers or crowns and have a complete smile makeover? Well, maybe bonding is your answer. Well, what is bonding? Think it of it’s like an artist and his clay making a sculpture. We’re able to add bits and pieces.

We can change the rotation a little bit, maybe make them a little bit longer, take some cracks and chips away. There are many things we can do with bonding, so we don’t have to do veneers. And a well done bonding case is absolutely gorgeous and will last a very long time. Bonding is not appropriate for everybody. Your lifestyle, that makes a huge difference with that.

But in many cases, bonding is a very conservative, less expensive way to get a great looking smile. So if you’d like some conservative bonding, please give us a call and we’ll see if you’re appropriate for that.
