It's traumatic to break a front tooth, but today a broken tooth can be restored to nearly new condition, function and appearance, thanks to new bonding techniques and materials.
Bonding is the artistic placement of a tooth-colored plastic material to restore a misshapen, discolored or broken tooth. Bonding is a flexible and adaptable means for repairing teeth, as it can restore the appearance and function of one tooth, or a number of teeth. And the effects are not merely cosmetic. Bonding protects teeth from additional wear and damage.


Before and after

The procedure
Bonding is usually a single-appointment procedure. The first step is the careful selection of the color and type of tooth-colored bonding material, called composite resin, to match the color of the teeth. Next, we lightly reduce the tooth with the dental handpiece, and a conditioning solution is applied to roughen the tooth surface and ensure that the resin will bond to it. Then, we apply the bonding material, sculpt and contour it to the proper shape, and then harden it with a harmless, high-intensity light. Lastly, we smooth and polish the new restoration to a high luster.


Bonding a broken tooth

Bonding is the artistic placement of a tooth-colored plastic material to front teeth to enhance their color, shape or length. You can have one tooth re-created with bonding, or we can transform your entire smile! And the effects are not merely cosmetic. Bonding protects your teeth from additional wear and damage.
Bonding may be the perfect option for you if you have:

  • Spaces between your teeth
  • Small or misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that have darkened or discolored


Lightening teeth

The bonding process
Bonding can usually be completed in one appointment. The first thing we will do is carefully select the tooth-colored bonding material, called composite resin, to match the color of your own teeth. Next, we lightly reduce your teeth with the dental handpiece. A conditioning solution is applied to roughen the teeth and ensure that the resin will bond to your tooth. Then we apply the bonding material, sculpt and contour it into the proper shape, and then harden it with a harmless, high-intensity light. Lastly, we smooth and polish your new bonded teeth.

Bonding is a comfortable procedure that can provide dramatic results in a relatively short amount of time.
