What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment option that uses a special tooth-colored resin to restore or alter an existing smile. Our doctors are professionally trained to utilize dental bonding in a variety of ways. The bonding material is malleable and the doctor will shape and smooth the resin to ensure that no matter what the issue is, the resin will fit comfortably in your mouth. The material is colored to match your surrounding teeth, ensuring it blends in seamlessly with your smile.
Dental bonding may be the right option for you if your smile suffers from any of the following cosmetic issues:
- Crooked, misshapen teeth
- Stained, discolored teeth
- Chipped, cracked teeth
- Decayed Teeth
- Awkwardly spaced teeth
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment amongst dentists and patients alike because of the unique benefits it offers, including:
Speed – The procedure can often be completed in one simple, quick appointment.
Durability – The bonding resin is tough and can last up to 10 years with excellent care.
Affordability – Dental bonding is one of the most cost-effective cosmetic procedures.
Non-Invasive – The treatment is non-surgical, so it rarely requires anesthesia, resulting in a painless experience.
Versatility – The dental resin can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic issues.
The Bonding Process
The entire bonding procedure typically takes only 30 to 60 minutes per tooth., Because the procedure is painless and non-invasive, you won’t require an anesthetic unless you experience heightened sensitivity.
First, the teeth are cleaned to ensure the resin will bond securely. Then, we’ll dry the tooth and lightly shave a portion of the enamel in order to apply the composite resin. Once the bonding material sets, our team will shape it to suit your unique smile.
Finally, we’ll use a special ultraviolet light to cure the material. We’ll provide additional polishing to ensure the resin matches the color and fit of your teeth perfectly. Once you and the doctor are satisfied, you’ll be free to leave the office with your stunning new smile!

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does dental bonding cost?
A great benefit of dental bonding is that it is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments available. The average cost ranges between $300 and $600 per tooth.
Can dental bonding resin stain?
Like your natural teeth, the composite resin used for dental bonding can stain. Unfortunately, once the material stains it cannot be whitened like your tooth’s enamel. To change the color of your resin, you would need to have your bonding reapplied.
Is dental bonding painful?
A wonderful advantage of dental bonding is that the procedure is non-invasive and virtually painless. You’ll require no anesthesia except in very rare cases of heightened sensitivity. If you experience severe dental anxiety or nervousness, talk with a doctor before the procedure about sedation options to help make your experience smooth and comfortable.
