Composite Bonding

Bonding is a technique that improves the appearance of your teeth by the direct application of the tooth-colored composite resin. Bonding is typically used for repairing chipped or cracked teeth, hiding stained areas on the tooth's surfaces or closing the gaps in between teeth.

Bonding can also be used to change the size or shape of your teeth, creating a smile that appears more symmetrical, space free and aesthetically pleasing. Unlike crowns or porcelain veneers, composite bonding removes little, if any, of the original tooth. Although bonding may not be as long lasting as porcelain veneers or crowns, it can last for a number of years with proper care.

Bonding is an option that is considered in the following situations:

  • Repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Make teeth look longer
  • Change the shape of teeth
  • Use as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • Protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede

Bonding can be used in a variety of ways. Some of the more common applications are as follows:

  • Filling a cavity or decayed tooth
  • Correcting discolored tooth
  • Filling gaps between teeth
  • Repairing minor chips or cracks
  • Reshape your tooth (to look more squarish)

Our Happy Customers

"As excruciating as going to the dentist is, I always look forward to my visits here. Dr. Gregory has been my dentist for a few years now and he is absolutely amazing at what he does. Linda, his sister, who manages the office is awesome and accommodating. Highly recommended!"


"Dr. Gregory is truly the best. He (and his office manager / sister Linda) are very pleasant to work with, but most importantly, he is extremely thoughtful and someone who I trust completely in a field in which that can be very hard to find. I never feel that he is trying to "up-sell" some procedure that is unnecessary, and in fact on several occasions has recommended against certain cosmetic procedures that others had recommended. He really is a trusted "dental consultant" (if that makes sense?)- and always willing to offer his time when needed. Don't hesitate to go to him!"


"I've been going to Dr Gregory for ten years and he's still the best in his field . I left for a year due to insurance changes and was miserable. The office is super clean . Linda is fantastic ."
