Tooth bonding can improve a patient's appearance in a couple of different ways that come to mind. One is, you've got a cavity and that's obvious. And with the materials that we have, you can put those in there and you can't even tell that there was anything ever done with the tooth. Another thing is, too, is somebody's got some teeth that are not aligned perfectly. You can do things with bonding materials that actually will build that tooth out on one side or on another, and it makes it look like they're perfectly lined up.
Another thing you may see sometimes, you'll see people who have these big triangles between their teeth where the teeth are more rounded or a super sharp canine. You can actually put bonding materials in there and kind of level those things out too, as well. So there's a lot of different things that you can do with composite materials to improve a smile.

Learn the Types of Flaws Bonding Can Correct
As we get older, our teeth will naturally suffer from wear and tear. In time, we might find it more embarrassing to smile and show our pearly whites. Tooth bonding will fix minor cosmetic dental flaws and make it easier to smile boldly. Bonding is a great cosmetic dentistry option to repair these types of problems:
- Gaps between teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Short teeth
- Inadequate root protection due to receding gums
Learn the Process of Bonding Teeth
Dental bonding is similar to applying putty to a wall to cover up holes or cracks. Most of the time anesthesia is not needed, although our staff is great at relieving any anxiety you might have about your procedure.
The bonding procedure takes approximately 30-60 minutes per tooth. We’ll start with a shade guide to precisely match the bonding material to the color of your other teeth. Then we’ll etch your tooth slightly, applying conditioning liquid to help the bonding process. Dr. Yung or Dr. Jelinek will then apply a natural-looking resin material to the tooth, molding it to the proper size and shape. An ultraviolet light will then be used to cure and harden the resin. Finally, your dentist will trim and polish the bonded tooth to ensure it looks and feels just like you want it to.
