What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a type of cosmetic procedure that helps to cover minor imperfections and slight flaws at the front of your smile. Bonding uses a composite resin material, which is matched perfectly to your existing teeth. When placed, the material covers areas that are chipped, cracked, stained, discolored, or unevenly spaced. Bonding can last for 10 or more years before it may need to be replaced.
Why is Dental Bonding needed?
You may want to consider dental bonding if you are unhappy with the look of your teeth. Because the procedure is relatively noninvasive, and can be done easily in our office, it’s suitable for most adult patients wanting to make a dramatic change to their smile. Some of the imperfections that bonding can help cover include:
- Spaces and gaps
- Uneven teeth

Who’s a candidate for Dental Bonding?
The majority of patients who want bonding done can easily and safely have the procedure performed in our office. Our goal is to provide you with a gorgeous, full smile that you can feel confident in showing off. We will begin with a consultation and exam done by Dr. Ghosh. We can determine if bonding is right for your teeth and fits with your own unique dental needs.
What happens during the procedure for Dental Bonding?
Dr. Ghosh will begin by buffing the area that will be receiving the bonding, and applying a bonding gel. The material that is used is carefully matched with your smile for a flawless finish. The composite resin is applied to the tooth, and smoothed into place to blend flawlessly with your natural smile. A special curing light is used to harden the material, keeping it firmly in place. Caring for your new bonding is as easy as brushing and flossing your teeth. You can expect years with a beautiful smile, and can have the bonding redone over time if it begins to wear or show signs of damage.
