Bonding is a procedure used to correct minor dental imperfections. Bonding, or cosmetic bonding, is a quick and affordable way to correct a variety of dental flaws. These include cracks, discoloration, gaps, low bite pressure (caused by short or uneven teeth), and tooth decay. If you have any of these dental issues you may be a good candidate for bonding.

After inspecting the tooth in question, our staff will select a color for the composite resin. We want the bonding to very closely match your tooth. Dr. Hoover or Dr. Yanda will then roughen the outer layer of your tooth, removing a minimal amount of tooth enamel. This is done so that they may apply a strong adhesive that will help the resin stick. The resin will then be shaped to fill in any cracks/gaps or to change the contours of your tooth. Afterwards, a strong LED light is used to “bond” the material to your tooth. A local anesthetic is generally only required when tooth decay or nerve damage is involved.

In its totality, dental bonding can usually be performed in a single visit, even if you are having several teeth bonded. The procedure usually takes between an hour and two. Recovery time is minimal. If you’re having your teeth lengthened, it might take a few days for you to get accustomed to the new shape.

The composite resin used in bonding can last between 3-5 years (sometimes longer) before it needs to be repaired or replaced. Most insurers will cover some or most of the cost of bonding, especially when its purpose is reconstructive rather than cosmetic.

    What our Patients are Saying About our Doctors

    • I have never had such an excellent experience with a dentist and staff. Dr. Hoover, the way you took time to learn my medical history during the exam meant so much to me. The person who took all the x-rays was so caring and gentle, making it as comfortable as possible. I am just so happy to have you as my dentist!
    • I appreciate the staff at Dr. Yanda's office very much. I never feel rushed. My hygienist is very thorough and compassionate towards fearful people like me!! I have referred friends to Dr. Yanda. It's hard to believe, but now when I go to the dentist, it's like I am visiting with friends.
    • Dr. Hoover is exceptional. His assistant is very kind and very perceptive to a patient's needs. I feel fortunate in choosing Dr. Hoover for my dental needs.
    • It is one thing to get great ongoing care, which we do, but quite another to get the immediate attention I did when an unexpected (complex) problem arose. As always, the care was thorough and top notch. A great local treasure!
    • Drs. Hoover and Yanda have been providing excellent and professional dental care to me for almost 30 years!
