Dental Bonding uses a tooth colored resin material that is applied and cured with a special dental light. This creates a long lasting dental bond with the material and the tooth to restore or enhance a person’s smile. Dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry to repair cracked or chipped teeth, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, close gaps between teeth, change shape of current teeth, as a cosmetic alternative to traditional fillings. Dental bonding has the ability to transform your smile in as little as one dental visit. Most dental bonding can be completed in about one hour.
