What is dental bonding?

Bonding is a simple, conservative cosmetic dental treatment. The goal of dental bonding is to correct cosmetic dental flaws to give you a more perfect smile that you love to show off and share. During the dental bonding process, our skilled dentists place a tooth-colored material called composite resin on the tooth structure. They then sculpt and shape the resin to match the appearance of your tooth and improve the beauty of your smile. Once the composite resin is properly shaped to fit your smile, it is hardened by using a special light. Drs. Sam and Melanie Huckabee will polish your tooth, then your smile is ready to go! Dental bonding typically requires just one short, pleasant visit to our office. The treatment usually involves little to no tooth preparation, so you can feel confident that your experience will be comfortable.

Do I need dental bonding?

If your smile is flawed and makes you feel self-conscious, you may benefit from dental bonding. Bonding is effective for correcting several types of flaws, including chipped, broken, cracked, discolored, gapped, or irregularly shaped teeth.
