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.

"Dr. Mark and his staff are the greatest! They are all so genuinely happy to see me and my family. He's been my dentist for 30+ years and my whole family goes to him.
