Bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that is very effective for filling gaps and cavities. Bonding is a great alternative to amalgam fillings.
Bonding can also be used to enhance the natural beauty of your smile by transforming teeth so they will be longer and more shapely. Whether your teeth are slightly misshapen, have gaps, or are discolored, bonding resin is an affordable, painless way to transform your smile.
For those with gingivitis or periodontitis who have receding gums that cause sensitivity and danger of bacterial infections when sensitive areas of the tooth are left exposed, bonding resin can protect your teeth and prevent decay and loss due to infection.

How does the bonding process work?
1. Custom Consultation
Because bonding requires very little preparation, it takes far less time than other dental projects, such as veneers and crowns. The first step in the bonding process is to find the right color to match your teeth to provide the most natural appearance possible.
The first step in adhering the putty-like, resin bonding material to your teeth is to apply a conditioning liquid. The conditioning liquid will allow the material to adhere to your teeth. The resin is then placed and molded to the proper shape and size, while a small handheld ultraviolet light is used to harden the material.
3. Fit and Function
Once the material is hardened, Dr. Moore will ensure the bonding material does not interfere with your bite. The resin is then trimmed, shaped, and polished to match the rest of your gleaming pearly whites.
What are the advantages of bonding?
1. Appearance + Feel
Bonding material looks and feels like real teeth, and we can customize the adherence to create a bite that is comfortable and functional, so you can have a beautiful smile feeling any noticeable changes.
Bonding is a very cost-effective way to treat minor cosmetic fixes. Unlike crowns and porcelain veneers, bonding does not require us to send custom molds of your teeth to a lab for creation. Most bonding procedures can also be done in one office visit, saving you both time and money.
While you may feel pressure and movement, the process of bonding is not painful. In fact, anesthesia is not even required for bonding treatments, unless a cavity is being filled.
