Understanding composite resin bonding
Composite resin bonding, sometimes referred to as dental bonding, is the use of a special material to restore the smile. This particular material is like a clay substance that can be shaped and hardened into position. The benefit of composite resin bonding is that it provides a same day solution to issues such as chipped and cracked teeth. It can be used to cover up permanently stained teeth, or to disguise issues such as gaps between them. Our dentists find that patients are able to quickly address problem areas of the smile with this treatment and enjoy a cosmetic enhancement for many years to come!

Composite resin bonding is beneficial for many of our patients because it is:
- Simple to care for

How composite resin bonding is used
When patients have imperfections of the natural teeth, the option of composite resin bonding is often considered. The area being treated is carefully filed down to create a rough surface for the bonding to adhere. Then, composite resin bonding is applied to the tooth and positioned into the shape and size needed. A curing light hardens the material, which is then filed and polished by the dentist to look like natural tooth enamel. The entire process can take just a few minutes, ensuring patients have a fast and effective way of addressing imperfections.
