Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve person’s smile.

Dental bonding is an option that can be considered to:

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • Make teeth look longer
  • Change the shape of teeth
  • Protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede
  • Repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)

Bonding is considered as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
