Correcting Minor Tooth Imperfections with Dental Bonding

Cosmetic bonding involves the “bonding” of composite resin directly to your tooth in order to improve its appearance and fix discoloration or chips. The composite resin is then shaped and polished to match your natural teeth.

Dental bonding is an easy process that takes place in our Greeley, CO, office during one visit. First, the dentist will prepare your tooth for bonding by removing a small amount of enamel—the outer layer of your tooth. Once your tooth has been prepared, your dentist will apply a special liquid that will help the composite resin bond to your tooth effectively.

Your natural tooth enamel and dentin—the layer of your teeth beneath the enamel—are fused together with the composite resin to create a strong structure. The dentist will then shape and polish the composite resin to match the shape of your natural teeth. Finally, the dentist will harden the resin using a special light or laser.

Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding

  • Repairs chipped or cracked teeth – Dental bonding is an easy solution to repair teeth that have minor chips or cracks.
  • Improves the appearance of your teeth – The composite resin used in dental bonding is made to match the natural shade of your teeth, improving the appearance of discolored teeth.
  • An affordable alternative for tooth repair – Bonding is a more affordable alternative to repairing chipped or broken teeth in comparison to dental crowns and porcelain veneers.
  • Quick procedure – The dental bonding procedure happens within our office and only takes one appointment to finish. This is because unlike crowns or veneers, the resin does not need to be created in a dental laboratory by technicians. It can be applied and shaped in-office.
