If your teeth are in need of some minor cosmetic repairs and you are searching for an inexpensive solution, dental bonding with composite resin may be a good option. Read on to learn more about how resin can give your smile the appearance of veneers.
What is Bonding with Composite Resin?
The tooth bonding process uses a versatile dental material known as composite resin. This material can be shaped and molded to create the perfect shape for your tooth. It goes onto the teeth easily, but a special light is used to harden it into place.
Bonding with composite resin can be used to treat a host of dental issues. When it comes to improving the appearance of your smile, resin can close gaps, repair cracks or chips, whiten the teeth, and alter the shape of the teeth. A crooked smile can look straight and beautiful for less cost and less time in the dental chair with composite resin.
Are You a Candidate? While composite resin may sound like a great solution to your dental issue, it is important to note that it isn't right for everyone. If your smile is misaligned due to an under-bite or overbite, composite resin won't be able to fix it. You may need more in-depth work, as dental bonding is primarily used for people who see cosmetic solutions for teeth that are otherwise healthy.
The Bonding Process
Dental bonding is quick and painless. Preparation is minimal and involves roughening the surface of the tooth before the application of a conditioning liquid. This will help the resin to adhere to the tooth, and it is molded and smoothed to the desired shape. Once the material is hardened with a bright, blue light, any excess material will be trimmed for the desired look.

Our patients come back to us because we truly care about the care you receieve. Here are some of the things our amazing patients have to say about us:
The staff are super friendly and made me feel really comfortable. I had to get implants for two "baby" teeth i still had left b/c i never grew permanent teeth in their place. I had to be sedated for the operation and expected to be out of commission for a couples days and in a lot of pain the following week. However, that evening I felt surprisingly good with minimal pain.
Dr. Myers is the best. I have been a patient of his for about 5 years and every time I come he makes me feel super relaxed and at ease. I have had everything from a simple cleaning to crowns and everything is virtually painless afterwards. I would recommend him to any person who is seeking a great dentist and staff.
