Does one of your teeth have some decay or damage? Do you want to get it fixed, but you’re looking for a more affordable way to do it? We can offer our patients dental bonding, which may have received its name because the material used bonds to your tooth, to help restore your tooth’s health and appearance.

A composite resin is used during dental bonding, which can be shaped and polished to look like the teeth surrounding it. Many people might choose this therapy for it’s cosmetic benefits because you can use it to potentially cover a tooth’s blemishes, cover small gaps or even alter the shape of a tooth.

A guide can help our dentist, Dr. Joseph Tagliarini, to select the shade of resin that can best match your teeth. Your tooth may be slightly etched to give it a rougher surface, and a light coating of a liquid can be applied that may help the bonding material stick. Then the resin can be applied, shaped, polished and hardened with a laser or light.
