In this post, we’re covering one of our popular services: cosmetic bonding. We’ll go more in-depth on what’s provided with this service, the benefits involved, and if cosmetic bonding is right for you.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves bonding a tooth to improve your smile aesthetically. During the process, tooth-colored composite material is applied to the surface of your tooth. This material is bonded with your existing teeth and is colored to match the look and feel of your natural teeth.

Why is it Used?

When our teeth become chipped, cracked, or have a severe change in color, it can greatly affect how your teeth appear. In order to maintain a healthy-looking smile, these teeth must be fixed for aesthetic purposes. Cosmetic bonding is used to fix teeth that are chipped, cracked, or have severe discoloration. This service is very safe and effective for your cosmetic dentistry needs. The material used is very strong and doesn’t chip or crack very easily. Our professionals have years of experience with cosmetic bonding, so you’re always in good hands with us.


When compared to other cosmetic dentistry services, cosmetic bonding is very effective and affordable. People everywhere are starting to see the amazing benefits of cosmetic bonding and how it can help their smile. Take a look at some of the advantages of this service:

  • Compared to other cosmetic dentistry services, cosmetic bonding isn't very expensive
  • A cosmetic bonding appointment only takes about one hour to complete
  • The natural tooth structure usually stays preserved after this service
  • Very little tooth enamel is removed—sometimes none at all
  • The bond can last for at least three years—usually longer

As you can see, there are many advantages to receiving composite bonding for your teeth. In as little as one office visit, you can obtain a healthy, aesthetically pleasing smile in only one hour!

Is it Right For You?

Now that you understand how cosmetic bonding works and the many advantages involved, it’s now time to decide if the service is right for you. When trying to decide, it’s important to know that you have options when it comes to aesthetically improving your smile. Crowns or veneers are other options to consider, and these are typically more durable and long-lasting. Additionally, these options seem to stain less often compared to composite bonding. However, these methods are also more expensive. We recommend consulting with our dentist to discuss the options you have, and which option will work best for your needs. No matter what you decide, we’d be happy to help you through the whole process.
