What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a quick, conservative way to enhance the appearance of your smile. This treatment can be used to effectively improve minor cosmetic dental flaws and give your smile a more inviting, attractive appearance. During the bonding process, our dentist places a tooth-colored material known as composite resin on the tooth structure. We then carefully shape the resin to fit your tooth and improve imperfections. The resin is hardened with a special light, and finally, we polish it and make any last adjustments to give it a natural, beautiful look. In many cases, little to no tooth preparation is needed for bonding, so your treatment will not require any shots, needles, or drills.

Do I need bonding?

Dr. Alberto A. Herrero may recommend dental bonding if you are searching for a cosmetic dental treatment that is noninvasive and fast; we can typically complete a bonding treatment in just one visit of less than one hour.

  • Gaps in between teeth

  • Cracked, broken, or chipped teeth
  • Exposed tooth roots
