Posted By: Dr. Joel Eley

Having a chipped tooth can be painful, not to mention it makes eating and speaking a challenge. At 321 Family Dental, we offer various restorative dental services to fix broken, fractured, and chipped teeth. One of these services is dental bonding. We invite you to keep reading to learn more about this treatment and how it can benefit you.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a restorative treatment involving composite resin to reshape, rebuild, and correct minor dental damage, like chips and cracks. Dr. Eley and our dental team are highly experienced in restoring teeth, and we will ensure your smile looks and feels natural. 

What Can Dental Bonding Fix?

Dental bonding can fix numerous dental concerns, such as:

  • Treat cavities
  • Repair chips, cracks, and breaks
  • Conceal discoloration 
  • Fill in gaps and uneven spacing
  • Modify misshapen or short teeth 
  • Replace silver fillings
  • Cover exposed tooth roots due to gum recession

The Dental Bonding Process

First, we perform a thorough oral health evaluation and might take some x-rays or intraoral images to pinpoint the area of concern. This also helps us ensure precise and personalized treatment outcomes. Next, we prepare the tooth's surface and apply a conditional liquid to help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. 

We color-match the putty-like composite resin to match your tooth and surrounding teeth; no one will even be able to tell you've had dental work done! Next, we apply, mold, and smooth the resin to the desired shape and finish the process by curing the material with a special light. The final curing stage hardens the material and ensures its security on the tooth.
