Dental bonding is a treatment that can address multiple cosmetic problems at once. It can change the shape, color, and position of your teeth to improve the appearance of your natural smile. Tooth bonding addresses deep tooth stains, restores chipped and cracked teeth, and can cover gaps between teeth.

The Dental Bonding Procedure
The dental bonding procedure is relatively simple and only requires one office visit. Prior to treatment, Dr. Greenberg will review your oral health goals, budget, and dental history to ensure that dental bonding is right for you. To begin treatment, Dr. Greenberg will remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth receiving treatment. This is done so that the bonding material can easily adhere to the tooth. Then, Dr. Greenberg shapes the biocomposite bonding material and sculpts it onto the tooth. He molds the material and then uses a special curing light to bond the material.
Dental Bonding FAQs
Does dental bonding look natural?
Yes, Dr. Greenberg color-matches the bonding material that he uses to ensure that it blends in with natural teeth. He can also brighten your smile by several shades if you have deep stains on your teeth.
How does tooth bonding compare to dental veneers?
Dental bonding and porcelain veneers can both be used for cosmetic treatment but differ in price and longevity. Tooth bonding is a temporary fix to cosmetic problems. Porcelain veneers provide more longevity. Dental bonding treatment benefits patients who want to try cosmetic dental care.
Can I use dental bonding for crooked teeth?
Your results with bonding will depend on the results you want as well as how crooked your teeth are. Tooth bonding is best suited for patients who want a cosmetic solution. Invisalign is better for patients who want restorative results. Dental bonding can be used to cosmetically fix one or two slightly crooked teeth.
