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 Patients

"Dr. Gregory has been my dentist for 20+ years. He is an excellent and thorough dentist. Recently I undertook a smile restoration with 6 porcelain veneers. Dr. Gregory did an excellent job explaining all the ins and outs of the procedure, and did all of the work to his usual high standard. I couldn't be happier!"

"Dr. Gregory is the BEST dentist I've ever been to. He has taken great care of me for the almost 10 years that I have seen him for preventative care and also now is helping me straighten my teeth using aligners. He has a terrific "bedside" manner, only does what is necessary, and is clear and thorough in every cleaning. He will fit you in when you need to see him and takes ample time at every visit. At every routine care visit, he is incredibly thorough. He's also a nice person, and I love that it's a family business and his sister helps him run the business. You can't go wrong with choosing Dr. Gregory as your dentist!!"

"My husband and I have been patients of Dr Paul Gregory for over a decade. He is an excellent highly skilled dentist who is also a caring and conscientious and professional who always puts his patients first above monetary considerations. He is personable and trustworthy and makes each visit a pleasure and how many dentists can you say that about lol. Most importantly I know he has our best interest at heart and knows his field and we trust him to give us the best possible care. A shout out to his sister Linda who is the office manager. She is a lovely person who is extremely well organized and runs the office super smoothly and it is always a joy to chat with her. I give Dr. Gregory my highest recommendation."
