What can Dental Bonding treat?
As an alternative to veneers, dental bonding is a versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment that lets our dentists give you a beautiful smile in just one visit.

What’s the benefit of dental bonding?
We know how important and influential your smile can be, and tooth bonding is generally an inexpensive cosmetic dentistry procedure. And, unlike veneers or crowns, dental bonding does not require the removal of enamel, meaning that there is less preparation involved. However, the composite resin is not as durable as other materials, so you may need to have the procedure redone every few years.
During an initial consultation, we’ll work closely with you to determine whether or not tooth bonding will be an effective solution for your chipped, discolored, or damaged tooth. If you need a more durable or more permanent repair, our team may suggest that you consider veneers or a crown.
The ease and cost of tooth bonding make this treatment a desirable option for many patients. If you’re looking to quickly and efficiently transform your smile, bonding may be the right treatment for you!
What does a dental bonding treatment look like?
Tooth bonding takes only one 30-minute visit. During an initial consultation, our El Paso dentist will match the shade of your teeth so that the composite resin used will blend in with your surrounding teeth. Following your consultation, we will prepare your tooth by etching it and applying a liquid that will help the bonding material adhere to your tooth. Once the resin hardens on your tooth, he will shape the tooth, giving you a beautiful smile.
No pain, just a gorgeous outcome!
