Are small imperfections in the appearance of your teeth keeping you from smiling as fully and as often as you would like?

Cosmetic dental bonding is a simple and cost-effective option for improving the appearance of your smile. Bonding is most successful in treating minor dental flaws like chips and discoloration. Tooth-colored composite resin is bonded to your existing teeth to change the shape or color of your teeth. Dr. Nicole Holmes and Dr. Dan Holmes will carefully match the color of the resin to the color of your teeth to ensure that the results look natural and beautiful. Our dentists will then harden this material to your teeth by using a curing light, then polish it to a beautiful, natural shine.

Cosmetic dental bonding can be used to:

  • Reduce gaps or spaces between the teeth
  • Cover discolored or stained areas of the teeth
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth

Whether your child chipped a tooth having fun at summer camp or you simply bit down too hard on a peach pit, dental bonding can be applied to restore your smile to its pre-injury shape. Doctors Dan and Nicole have a strong sense of aesthetics and are committed to providing you with a natural-looking smile.

Dental bonding can also be used to treat localized tooth discoloration, such as that from tetracycline staining. Whether your teeth have yellow, brown (or even purple) streaks, spots or edges, we can use dental bonding to cover that area with a layer of tooth-colored bonding that will have you smiling again immediately. Imagine smiling and laughing at your next birthday with a mouth full of evenly-colored, natural looking teeth!

Another instance where dental bonding may be an effective treatment is in cases where the natural tooth is uncommonly small, short or where there are spaces between teeth. Bonding can be used to build up the visible shape of a small tooth to make it match the natural curve of your best smile.

Is food always getting caught in the small spaces between your teeth? Dental bonding may be used to close those small spaces in a way that looks, and functions, as it was meant to. In fact, some of our patients choose to whiten their teeth before the bonding procedure to maximize their aesthetic results.

In instances where the space between the two front teeth, called a diastema, is particularly large, we may recommend using dental bonding to make the space smaller instead of removing it altogether. That allows us to preserve the naturally rectangular proportions of your front teeth. Whether closing or reducing that gap, Doctors Dan and Nicole Holmes are trained to take into consideration both function and appearance, and they will advise you accordingly.

Your cosmetic bonding treatment can be completed in just one short visit to Holmes Dental. It not only has the benefit of being a relatively inexpensive procedure, but a non-invasive one as well, since it does not require the removal of any natural tooth tissue.
