Woman who has had cosmetic bondingDental bonding can be the ideal conservative treatment for teeth that are slightly stained, chipped or minimally flawed. Dr. Chalmers uses dental bonding to sculpt anterior (front) teeth with a tooth-like material called “composite resin”. Dental bonding can give your smile substantial yet subtle improvement. Cosmetic bonding is a painless procedure that has the ability to change the shape, contour, color and position of teeth in order to enhance the appearance of your smile.

FAQs About Cosmetic Bonding

Is bonding painful?

Since very little tooth structure is reduced— minimal drilling—bonding is often performed without anesthetic. The process is conservative—we leave most of your natural tooth undisturbed.

Do bonded teeth stain or discolor?
