Dental Bonding Services

Dr. Colletta is proud to offer professional dental bonding services for your entire family. Dental bonding is the application of a composite resin to your existing tooth. This resin is hardened and bonded to your tooth with the use of an ultraviolet light. Dental bonding has two unique purposes:

1. Dental bonding can be used to repair decayed or decaying teeth.

The bonding resin used to repair teeth can also be used to fill cavities, resulting in a white or natural looking appearance once complete. Many patients find this option more attractive than the silver filling option.

In addition to filling cavities, bonding can be used to protect a tooth’s root. Unhealthy gums can recede over time, leaving a tooth’s root exposed, unprotected and in many cases sensitive. An exposed root can cause future problems and immediate pain. Bonding the tooth’s root can protect it from future damage and decay while eliminating any pain or discomfort.

2. Dental bonding can also be used cosmetically to correct minor imperfections in your smile.
Bonding is an easy, cost effective and efficient way to fix small issues in the appearance of your teeth. It is also a fast process, taking less than an hour in most cases. By attaching, or ‘bonding’ a small piece of resin that has been color-matched to your existing teeth, the following flaws can be professionally corrected or masked:

  • small gaps between teeth
  • minor chips and cracks on teeth
  • tooth discoloration
  • tooth shape or length
