Cosmetic Bonding is a procedure in which the dentist uses a tooth-colored composite resin to create a more ideal shape for your tooth. This is an excellent option for patients who have teeth with small chips, spaces, or discolored areas.
Cosmetic bonding is generally completed in one visit, and depending on the patient's desires, often without getting numb. First, the tooth is prepared for the bonding by removing any discoloration, decay, or rough areas. An etching gel is then applied to the tooth followed by a bonding agent. Composite resin is then sculpted on your tooth. After shaping and polishing, your tooth will have a beautiful, natural look.
Cosmetic bonding is less expensive and less invasive than crowns or veneers. However, they are less durable than the other options. Patients need to be more careful with these teeth because they can chip or wear over time.

“I had to find a new dentist in 1977. I elected to try the new Byron Dental Group, which had just opened. I’ve been going there for 30 years and I sure made the right choice. The staff is excellent; they use up-to-date equipment and resources, all generating a more personal touch.”

“I was a patient at the Byron Dental Group for over 20 years. A career change brought me to Texas. My new dentist told me I needed several thousands-of-dollars’ worth of work. I called and scheduled an appointment at the Byron Dental Group while returning for the holidays. Their second opinion revealed no such work was needed. I really appreciate their honesty.”
