Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is used to restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in small gaps between teeth, and even recolor teeth.

A special resin is thinly layered onto your natural teeth to improve the look of your smile. This procedure is for patients with a chipped tooth or those wanting to fill a space between their teeth without placing a crown or veneer.

With cosmetic bonding, you usually do not need to be numb unless you are sensitive to the air and or water used in the process.

How does cosmetic bonding work?

Dr. Barnett or Dr. Geiger will roughen up the front of the tooth and then apply a thin layer of tooth colored resin to the tooth. Once you and the doctor are happy with the shape and appearance of the tooth or teeth, we will check your bite and polish the bonding material to make it look natural alongside your other teeth. Right after leaving your visit, you will be okay to drink, eat and go about your life!
