WHAT IS TEETH BONDING?
Teeth or Dental bonding is one of the simplest cosmetic dental procedures that can make your teeth look even and more beautiful. Dental bonding for front and back tooth has proven to be beneficial if you need to improve:
- gapped teeth
- misshapen or cracked teeth
- damaged or decayed tooth.
- sensitive teeth
- stained teeth
In general, dental bonding provides a great solution for cosmetic improvement.
Benefits of Teeth Bonding
Because bonding is a very simple procedure, it is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic treatments available. Here are some of its main benefits:
However, bonding may need to be treated or replaced at a future date (though it will typically last for many years before any replacement is needed).

Teeth Bonding Procedure
Dental Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite material (resin) on your damaged tooth or teeth.
Before the bonding process, your dentist will carefully choose the color and shade of the composite that closely matches your surrounding teeth.
Your dentist will continue to reshape and prepare your tooth. After reshaping, your tooth will be coated with a liquid that helps the bonding composite adhere.
Next, your dentist will apply the resin (a putty-like material) and use a special light for the material to harden (or bond) to your tooth surface. Finally, the closing trimming and polishing will give your smile a perfect look. The whole process typically lasts about an hour and you will see wonderful results!

Teeth Bonding FAQ
Our office works with PPO plans, so you will definitely be able to use your insurance for dental bonding. If you have this type of plan and you need dental bonding, you can get the best treatment under the most relaxing and comforting conditions, and then get reimbursed directly by your insurance company.
When you have a cracked, chipped or damaged tooth, your dentist will make a comprehensive examination of your mouth to determine which treatment is best for you. If the crack or damage is minor, you can simply get it repaired with dental bonding in just one office visit. However, if the damaged area is larger or more severe, you may need other restorative treatments such as crowns or veneers.
While fixing a tooth with dental bonding means you will get a composite material adhered and shaped onto your tooth, a dental crown involves restoring your tooth by using a “cap”. This cap is specially designed in a laboratory to be placed onto your tooth or implant. Bonding and crowns serve quite different purposes, although both are used for restorative and cosmetic treatments. Bonding is much simpler and can fix minor gaps, chips or stains. Crowns are aimed to protect wider areas and tend to be more definitive restorations.
When you have dental bonding done, your tooth needs to be slightly prepared. In general, the treatment is quite simple and does not require anesthesia. However, some patients are extremely sensible to dental tools. In such case, your dentist can suggest to numb the area so that you feel comfortable and at ease during the whole process.
Dental bonding could last anywhere between 5 and 10 years, depending on your bite, oral home care, etc. Bonding may not be as long-lasting as a crown, for example. However, with good regular hygiene and proper care of your teeth, bonding can last for many years. As with all restorative treatments, after the bonding procedure you should avoid biting on hard foods or anything that can break the composite material adhered to your tooth. If you grind your teeth at night, consider wearing a night guard to prevent cracks or fractures. Also, right after the bonding treatment, avoid drinking tea or coffee, as these can stain the composite material. As a general rule, visit your dentist every six months and you will make sure your dental bonding does not need replacement.
