What is Teeth Bonding?

Teeth bonding is a treatment in dental care where a tooth colored resin material is applied to the surface of the teeth. This resin is a durable plastic that is shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth to make the repair virtually invisible. This tooth repair procedure is quick and painless, and is usually completed in a single visit. The bonding process is a fast and effective dental treatment for tooth restoration.

You can find more information on the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered here at Roy C. Blake III, DDS, MSD, Maxillofacial Prosthodontist, including bonding, implants, and veneers here.

Types of Dental Bonding

There are two main types of dental bonding, and the type chosen depends on the patient's specific needs.

Direct Composite Bonding

This is the most common type of bonding process, where we apply a composite resin directly to the tooth. It is primarily used for minor repairs, such as filling cavities, repairing chips, or covering discolorations.

Adhesive Bonding

Adhesive bonding is different in that a restoration is also attached to the tooth using an adhesive. The restoration may be a veneer, crown, or bridge. This procedure is used for more extensive dental work.

The Procedure

The process of teeth bonding can be completed in a single visit, but it is completed after several steps.

Consultation and Planning

During the initial consultation, our team examines the patient, and forms a plan for the procedure.


Little to no patient preparation is needed for tooth bonding, and anesthesia is unnecessary, except if dental bonding is used to fill a decayed tooth. We carefully select a resin color that closely matches the patient's natural teeth.


The surface of the tooth is roughed slightly and a conditioning liquid is applied. This helps the bonding material adhere to the tooth.

Application of the Resin

We apply the resin to the tooth and mold it to the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light that activates the chemicals in the resin. This reaction causes it to cure and harden.

Finishing Touches

Once hardened, the bonded tooth is further trimmed, shaped, and polished to match the rest of the tooth surface, and surrounding teeth.

Benefits of Teeth Bonding

Teeth bonding offers numerous advantages, making it a popular choice for cosmetic dental treatments.


Bonding improves the appearance of teeth. It is especially useful for hiding discoloration, and minor imperfections.

Cost Effective

Compared to other cosmetic dentistry procedures like veneers and crowns, bonding is more affordable. This makes it accessible to many more patients.


The procedure is quick, often completed in just one visit, which allows patients to achieve a better smile in very little time.

Minimally Invasive

Unlike veneers or crowns, bonding requires little to no removal of the tooth enamel. It preserves the natural structure of the teeth.


Bonding is used to address many different dental issues, from minor repairs to significant cosmetic improvements.

Risks and Considerations

Tooth bonding is safe and effective, but there are some risks involved with every medical procedure, and some considerations to keep in mind.


The bonding material is not as strong as natural teeth, or other restorative materials like porcelain or ceramic. The material may chip or break when subjected to excessive force, such as chewing on hard objects, or teeth clenching.


Composite resin is more prone to staining than natural teeth, especially for patients who consume a lot of staining substances such as coffee, tea, red wine, or tobacco. Avoiding these substances, practicing proper oral hygiene, and regular professional cleanings help mitigate stains.


Bonding typically lasts between three to 10 years before it needs to be touched up or replaced. Its lifespan depends on the location of the bonding, and the care taken after the procedure.


Bonded teeth require good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, dental check ups, and professional cleanings. Avoiding habits that are hard on the teeth like nail biting and chewing on hard objects prolongs the life of the bonding.

Aftercare for Bonded Teeth

Proper aftercare is essential to ensure the longevity and appearance of bonded teeth.

Dental Care - Oral Hygiene

After bonding, a diligent oral hygiene routine of brushing at least twice a day, and flossing daily before bed, is crucial to combat staining.


Avoid foods and beverages that stain. This includes coffee, tea, red wine, and cola. If you do consume these, rinse your mouth immediately afterward, and brush your teeth.

Regular Dental Visits

Bonding requires regular check ups and cleanings. We can monitor the condition of the bonding at these appointments, and make adjustments as necessary.

Avoid Hard Objects

Do not chew on hard objects like ice, pens, or your fingernails. This damages the bonding material.

Use a Mouthguard

If you play contact sports, clench, or grind your teeth at night, please use a mouth guard to protect your bonded teeth.
