What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a quick, simple way to improve the appearance of your smile. Also called teeth bonding, dental bonding involves using composite resin to correct cosmetic dental flaws. Composite resin is a durable material that can be matched to your original tooth color for a natural, attractive effect. The resin is placed on your tooth and skillfully sculpted by our talented dentist to fit your tooth and enhance your smile. Once the resin is properly shaped, it is hardened through the use of a special light. Dr. John Deakins will then polish your tooth, giving you a beautiful, natural-looking finish. In most cases, dental bonding in Liberty, Missouri can be completed during just one appointment of less than one hour at our office.

Do I need dental bonding?

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Stains or discoloration on the surface of the teeth
  • Spaces and gaps between teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Very worn teeth
