Do you feel embarrassed about wanting to change your smile?
If You Feel Self-Conscious, You Are Not Alone
Dental Bonding Is a Popular Dental Procedure
Do you hide your mouth when you speak? Are you embarrassed about smiling and showing your teeth? Whether your goals are cosmetic or functional, bonding can solve a variety of dental issues.
Dental bonding uses tooth-colored resin to cover visible concerns in your teeth and enhance your appearance. The putty-like composite resin is molded and shaped to your tooth for a hard finish that matches the appearance of natural enamel. Though simple, this dental procedure yields dramatic results.
What can bonding address?
Chipped TeethDental bonding fills and smooths chips, blending to your existing tooth enamel for a natural look and fit.
Discolored TeethBonding transforms stubborn teeth that don’t respond to standard whitening procedures, leaving you with a radiant smile.
Size AdjustmentOur dentist can apply the resin to enlarge or elongate a tooth to match surrounding teeth and enhance alignment.
Teeth GapsIf you have gaps between your teeth, Dr. Carpenter can use composite resin to discreetly fill the spaces.
Receding GumsIn the early stages of gum recession, dental bonding can help protect exposed roots and reduce tooth sensitivity.

Dental Bonding Before & After
Comparing Dental Bonding and Veneers
Dental bonding is more affordable than veneers and other forms of dentistry, making it a popular choice among patients not wanting to break the bank.
Have an event coming up and want to look your best? Dental bonding is completed in just one visit with immediate results. Veneers take time to manufacture in a dental lab.
Unlike veneers, dental bonding does not require the removal of tooth enamel. Once a patient gets veneers, they cannot go back to their natural teeth.
What to Expect during Treatment
Maintaining Your Smile
Dental bonding can last as long as 10 years before needing to be touched up or replaced. To maximize the benefits of treatment, it’s essential to practice good oral health and stay on top of your annual dental visits. Please be mindful of certain foods or habits that could potentially damage your teeth. We recommend patients avoid:
- Eating hard food such as nuts, candy, or popcorn.
- Foods and drinks such as wine and coffee that may cause staining. Composite resin isn’t immune from discoloration.
- Opening packages with your teeth.
- Chewing on your nails, pens, or ice.
Additionally, it’s essential to be mindful of habits like teeth grinding. If you grind at night, we may recommend a mouth guard to prevent wearing down your dental bonding.
How Much Does Dental Bonding Cost?
Dental bonding is a popular option due to its inexpensive but effective results. Bonding typically costs between $100 to $400 a tooth, depending on your individual needs and goals for treatment. Our office accepts CareCredit® financing to help patients afford dentistry.
