Your smile makes a statement – it speaks volumes without a single word being uttered. But if you’re unhappy with your teeth, you aren’t putting your best smile forward. A chipped or broken tooth can make some people so self-conscious that they feel compelled to hide their smile. Fortunately, at Batavia Family Dental, we offer a quick and relatively inexpensive way to fix chipped teeth that also provides strong and aesthetically pleasing results. Dental bonding can repair a broken or chipped tooth or close gaps between teeth in less than an hour.
How does bonding work?
The key to this type of tooth repair is “composite resin,” which is a pliable, tooth-colored mixture of plastic and silica filler that the dentist applies in layers. Due to its strong adherence and hardening qualities, composite resin creates an exceedingly strong repair. The hardened bonding resin also can be sculpted so that the repaired tooth looks as good as new. It can beautifully transform imperfections and damage, helping you smile with greater confidence!
- repair decayed teeth and replace silver-colored fillings with attractive white ones
- strengthen and cover worn enamel, hide chips, and fill in cracks
- cover stained or misshapen teeth and close gaps
Dental bonding is also…
Cost-effective. It’s less expensive than veneers. If you need it done to fill a small cavity or for structural reasons, your dental insurance will cover the treatment.
Non-invasive. With our techniques and technology, we’ll be able to help you relax while we enhance your smile.
Fast. Most treatments can be completed within an hour … so you don’t have to spend an entire day in the dental chair.
Long-lasting. By properly looking after your smile at home, your bonding treatment can remain effective for as long as 10 years.
Is bonding right for you?
Once we get to know you and your smile better, together we can decide on which cosmetic option will get you the results you desire. If it’s right for you, we’ll give you maintenance tips to ensure your bonding treatment lasts as long as possible.

P.S. Dental bonding requires less enamel removal than porcelain veneers or crowns.
