Dental Bonding

​Dental bonding is a quick, effective, and practical way to improve the shape, color, and appearance of your teeth. Dental bonding also helps preserve your original tooth structure, making thin teeth stronger and promoting your oral health now as well as in the future.

Bonding is the application of a composite resin (plastic-like material) that matches the color of your teeth in order to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured, or discolored tooth. It can also make teeth appear longer and can be used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings. 

How long does the bonding process take?

Bonding can be done in a single visit to Greenwood Dental Smiles.

How are teeth prepared for bonding?

The dentist will lightly etch the surface of the tooth and then apply the bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied.

Will the plastic resin look like my real tooth?

Yes. There are multiple color options to match the color of your other teeth. Also, the plastic resin is sculptable and can be shaped to look like your other teeth. Once set, the resin can be trimmed, smoothed, and polished to look like it’s your natural tooth.

How long will the bonding last?

Dental bonding will not last as long as a veneer or crown, however, if you practice good oral hygiene and are careful not to abuse your teeth by chewing ice or grinding your teeth you should be able to enjoy the benefits of bonding for close to a decade. Brushing your bonded teeth after drinking liquids that can stain, like coffee or red wine, can help to maintain their bright color. This is important because bonding is resistant to whitening products. Dental bonding is a great cost-effective treatment for chipped, yellowed, or misshapen teeth.

"Greenwood Dental Smiles made my first visit to the dentist in 10+ years as painless as possible. The staff is super friendly, and you can feel the support and love between the team during your visit. Highly recommend! And my next visit was just as wonderful. They are truly consistent with their experiences! Love my dentist "

Kelsi Faletic

"Amazing team! I really can't say enough about Greenwood Dental Smiles and their entire staff. They're always super friendly and do phenomenal work. Due to my refusal to floss regularly I’ve given them a few small “projects” over the years beyond just routine cleanings. I’m totally petrified of shots/needles but they’re some of the best in the business at guiding me through it those scenarios. If you’re looking to get some work done or just schedule cleanings, look no further. I would never go anywhere else; in fact maybe I’ll continue not flossing just so I can come back more frequently :-D"

Tom Leeper

"Hands down the best dentist I've been to in my 30 years. From the beginning everyone was friendly. The dental hygienist, Paige, put me at ease and was very gentle with the cleaning. The dentist was extremely nice and explained everything to me. I'm so glad I finally found a dentist that I enjoy going to."

Abby Chumin

"Wonderful experience. Staff was very friendly, teeth feel very clean. Explained procedures clearly, communicated openly and were easy to understand. "Greenwood Dental Smiles" is a very fitting name because smiles were abundant all around!"

Jared Wilson

"I highly recommend Greenwood Dental Smiles! Upon entering, I’m greeted by name- who doesn’t love that!? Everyone else I encounter is incredibly friendly and patient with all my questions. Whether I’m there for a cleaning or a different procedure everything is explained to me, step-by-step. The recently remodeled office is always clean. If you’re looking for a new dental office, Greenwood Dental Smiles is the place to go!"
