Composite Bonding

Bonding is a technique that allows us to produce dramatic results quickly and easily. We can fill gaps in your teeth or make a chipped tooth whole or cover stained teeth. It is the most flexible technique we have and according to the bonding procedure one of the most inexpensive.

Composite bonding is much like having a sculptor use beautiful white materials to treat problem areas with your teeth. We can fill gaps in your teeth, change shapes, change color (cover stains) or change a chipped tooth to a whole tooth. It is a technique that our patents describe with wonder.

The Procedure

We begin by preparing the tooth or teeth to receive the composite bonding materials. We use a mild solution to condition the surface of the tooth so the composite materials will adhere. We then apply several layers of material and sculpt the shape of the tooth to its most attractive form. We also control the shade or whiteness of the tooth, which gives us a great deal of aesthetic latitude.
