What is bonding?
If your teeth are affected by minor chips, cracks, or other small flaws, your dentist may recommend bonding. Dental bonding is a simple yet effective cosmetic dental treatment that can noticeably enhance the beauty of your smile in as little as one visit to our friendly office. During the dental bonding treatment, we will place a material called composite resin onto your natural tooth structure. Composite resin is a tooth-colored substance that forms a strong bond with your tooth. After shaping the resin to fit your tooth, we harden it with a special light and polish it to match the appearance of your natural tooth. In most cases, we can complete teeth bonding in Juneau, Alaska, in just one comfortable visit to Alaska Dental Arts. Because cosmetic bonding typically requires little or no tooth preparation, you can feel confident that your visit will be comfortable and pain free.
Do I need bonding?
We may suggest dental bonding if your smile is flawed by:
- Cracked, broken, or chipped teeth

- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Spotted or stained teeth
- Exposed tooth roots
To discover whether dental bonding is right for your smile, we welcome you to contact our office today and schedule a cosmetic consultation with our dentist. We look forward to enhancing your smile!
