Dental Bonding

When you smile, you should be confident to flash the biggest grin you’ve got! Unfortunately, many of us are self-conscious of dental imperfections. At Garrison Family Dentistry in Smithville, MO, we are able to fix the look of many aesthetic dental issues with dental bonding.

Dental bonding is the process of using a tooth-colored composite resin to repair teeth that have been damaged or are otherwise unsightly. If you have gaps, cracks, or misaligned teeth, dental bonding can fix that. If you have misshapen teeth or discoloration, dental bonding can also fix that!

To begin the process of dental bonding, your dentist will first choose a composite resin that will match the color of your tooth/teeth. Then, the surface of your tooth will be lightly etched to aid a strong bond. Next, the resin will be applied to your tooth and molded into the right shape. For whitening purposes, a resin will be chosen that is brighter than your current shade and it will be applied over the entire surface of your teeth. The resin is then hardened and polished so it shines like a normal tooth. The next time something makes you laugh, you will be confident in letting that smile shine!

If you have been hiding your smile, it is time to talk to us about dental bonding or another one of our cosmetic options. To schedule an appointment with Garrison Family Dentistry in Smithville, MO, call our office at (816) 532-8778 or visit our website,
