When we talk about cosmetic dentistry, probably the easiest and quickest way to provide that to a patient is through bonding. And what bonding is is when we take a tooth-colored filling material and basically bond it to the surface of the tooth. The way we do that is really, really requires very little prep on the tooth side, but we're able to go in and bond a thin layer over the tooth to maybe change the shade of the tooth or bond a little bit of material here, there, to straighten the tooth out or to maybe add tooth surface if a tooth doesn't really touch another tooth in the front, maybe needs to kind of close those gaps. Oftentimes we do bonding to do that. It's less expensive than a typical veneer would be and also less invasive to the tooth. And so relatively quickly and easily and really affordably, we're able to take bonding and change smiles for patients and appearances that way.

Tooth Bonding Can Give You a Brand-New Look
Teeth bonding uses a strong composite resin material (the same material we use for our beautiful, tooth-colored fillings) to quickly repair many smile flaws. Bonding is great for getting rid of chips, cracks, deep stains, gaps, uneven teeth, and worn teeth.
Dr. Fitts will custom-shade the composite material so that it blends in perfectly with the rest of your smile. That’s why you may want to combine a bonding procedure with teeth whitening treatment. Once we’ve whitened your teeth to your desired level, then we can match the exact shade of composite to create your beautiful new smile.
Dr. Fitts will artistically apply the composite resin to your teeth to give them a gorgeous, uniform appearance. Once the composite looks perfect, he will use a special light that instantly cures and hardens the material. Gone will be all those teeth flaws that were giving your smile a drab, worn-down appearance. In their place will be beautiful, white teeth that will automatically create better first impressions when you meet new people. You’ll feel bolder about speaking up in public and enjoy more confidence to work toward that promotion or new job you’ve been wanting.
