Composite Dental Bonding

We help with your cracked tooth or injured teeth, give us a call.
Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a chipped, decayed, fractured, discolored tooth or as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings. Bonding is a cosmetic procedure where the dentist applies a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shapes it, allows it to harden and polishes it. It can also be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged. These repairs generally can be resolved through this relatively conservative means. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, tooth bonding is most useful for repairing chipped teeth. This is due to the fact that the bonding materials used are natural in color, which allows for a finished product that closely matches your surrounding teeth.

Here's How it Works

The dentist prepares the tooth surface so the bonding material will adhere. Once it has been applied, the dentist will shape it so it has a natural appearance. Then the material is allowed to harden, usually with the help of a light. Finally, the composite is polished and buffed so that the surface is smooth.


The consumption of tea, coffee, other substances and cigarette smoking are a few of the things that may increase and play a role in staining the resin used in bonding. Flossing, brushing your teeth often, and having them professionally cleaned every six months by a dental hygienist can help the longevity of the bonding.

Bonding is a perfectly adequate and affordable solution to certain dental problems. Dental bonding can take less time to accomplish and is usually completed in one visit. Perhaps dental bonding can offer you a solution. Give us a call at (860) 331-8748 so we can discuss options with you.
