A crooked, chipped or gapped tooth is enough to make anyone self-conscious about their appearance. At Chicago Dental Arts, we specialize in cosmetic dental bonding, a relatively simple procedure that will give you back your smile and your confidence in just one pain-free visit. Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin that’s able to repair specific imperfections that you want to fix.
Why Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding, or porcelain bonding, uses composite resin to correct minor imperfections, such as:
- Minor Gaps,
- & Worn Teeth

Dental Bonding Procedure
Bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive of the cosmetic dental procedures. Each person has a unique case so the procedure will adhere to the type of bonding you need done for your teeth. In just one visit, Chicago Dental Arts can shape and restructure your teeth, permanently correcting any imperfections in only 4 steps:
- Roughening The Surface: The surface of your teeth will be – painlessly – roughed in preparation for the resin application.
- Gel Application: Gel will be applied to help the resin “bond” to your teeth faster.
- Shaping The Teeth: Once the resin has hardened, the doctor will shape your teeth. (You won’t feel a thing.)
- Hardening Process: When the desired shape has been created, a painless, yet high-intensity light is used to harden the resin and complete the bonding process.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes to one hour to complete, but if you are having more than one tooth done, it’s possible you’ll need to schedule several visits. Make sure you avoid eating or drinking foods that can stain your teeth for the first 48 hours after your composite procedure.
