Cosmetic bonding is done by bonding tooth-colored material to the front teeth. This strong, durable material is also used to repair cavities in the back teeth. Dr. Ayer will perfectly match the color to your existing shade, so some of our patients prefer to whiten beforehand so their smile looks even better afterward. Cosmetic bonding is a great option for many issues because, in addition to replacing damaged enamel, it also improves your smile’s overall appearance.

This procedure is fast and easy. It typically takes 30-60 minutes per tooth and, oftentimes, numbing is only necessary when tooth decay is involved.

The last step is polishing and smoothing your new bonding so that it looks and feels great.
