Dental bonding is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile. Our dentists may recommend dental bonding in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. We will use a shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your teeth for a natural-looking effect. We can also use a slightly lighter shade if you plan to whiten the color of your teeth.
Dental bonding typically requires just one visit, and because this treatment usually necessitates little to no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your visit will be quick and comfortable. During the bonding process, Dr. Timothy E. Gillespie and our highly skilled dentists and team place the malleable, putty-like composite resin directly onto the tooth surface. It is then shaped and sculpted to perfect any flaws in the tooth prior to hardening, trimming and polishing, resulting in a lasting, aesthetic restoration for your smile.
