Dental Bonding Cosmetic Dentistry for the Owasso Community

Dental bonding is a quick and painless cosmetic procedure that adheres composite resin to an affected tooth. Dr. Cary shapes the resin while it’s still pliable, solidifying it with a specialized UV light to finalize its form. We use dental bonding to repair chips and cracks, hide tooth discoloration, and change the overall shape of your teeth.

Our Dental Bonding Process in Six Simple Steps

  • Color Matching
    The shade of resin needs to match the natural shade of your tooth.
  • Tooth Prep
    Next, we shave and coarsen the surface of your tooth.
  • Conditioned Liquid
    After prepping your tooth, we apply a special liquid to help the resin stick.
  • Resin Application
    We apply, shape, and smooth the resin into the desired shape.
  • UV Light Application
    We use a special light to bond the resin to your tooth’s surface.
  • Finishing Touches
    We complete your dental bonding procedure with shaping and polishing touch-ups.

Breaking Down the Benefits of Dental Bonding

Standard Dental Procedure

As one of the most commonly performed procedures in modern dentistry, dental bonding is significantly less intrusive than procedures requiring enamel removal and tooth alteration. Dental bonding attaches a new layer of molded resin to your existing teeth, whereas dental crowns and veneers call for more invasive changes to your smile.

Variety of Use-Cases

Dental bonding is a remarkably versatile dental procedure used to treat an array of cosmetic challenges. Many patients come to us with small chips, cracks, gaps, and other wear and tear they want to fix. However, we occasionally raise their eyebrows when recommending bonding as a discoloration solution. Dental bonding is one of the more cost-effective options to remedy many common, minor imperfections in your smile.

One and Done

We complete dental bonding procedures in a single visit to our Lexington Dental of Owasso office. Bonding is minimally invasive and usually wholly painless, classifying it as a fantastic option for quick cosmetic issues without breaking the bank.
