Do you have a minor dental imperfection, such as a badly stained or chipped tooth that detracts from your beautiful smile? Dental bonding can correct minor imperfections and restore a bright, even smile. The process involves applying a composite resin to your tooth’s surface to provide a flawless finish.

What Problems Can Dental Bonding Solve?
Dental bonding works effectively at addressing minor dental flaws such as:
- Cracks, chips, or fractures
- Tooth decay
Besides restoring your smile and self-confidence, bonding can also improve your oral health. Even a minor crack can create a place for bacteria to collect and cause an infection. Fixing your smile with dental bonding prevents you from requiring costly and invasive dental treatment.
The Dental Bonding Process
Dental bonding is one of the simplest dental procedures. Depending on how many teeth need correcting, our dentists usually complete the process in a single appointment.
First, Dr. Shultz or Dr. Raimondo will smooth out any rough edges of the problem tooth. Next, we’ll work with you to choose a shade of composite resin that matches your natural teeth. The bonding process begins with roughening your tooth’s surface so that the bonding agent can attach to it.
Dr. Shultz or Dr. Raimondo will apply a bonding resin to cement the composite. After applying several layers of composite, our dentists sculpt it to complete the structure of the damaged tooth before hardening the resin with a curing light.
Finally, we’ll make adjustments as needed, and polish the tooth to blend in naturally with the surrounding teeth.
With proper care, bonding can last up to a decade. Keeping up with your regular brushing and flossing routine extends the lifespan of the bonding materials. We also recommend biannual checkups and cleanings, during which we’ll evaluate the status of your bonding and make any necessary adjustments.
