What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment involving a putty-like resin material applied to your teeth’s surface. Dr. Flax then sculpts the resin into the ideal shape to perfect your smile’s look. He matches the bonding resin color to blend with your surrounding teeth seamlessly.

What Can Dental Bonding Fix?

Dental bonding is highly versatile, allowing Dr. Flax to address many cosmetic dental flaws:

  • Close small gaps between teeth
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Reshape uneven or irregular teeth
  • Lengthen short teeth
  • Cover intrinsic stains on teeth surfaces
  • Fill excess spaces from missing teeth
  • Improve the appearance of silver amalgam fillings

Dr. Flax meticulously sculpts bonding resin into the ideal shape and shade for stunning improvements suited to your unique smile. The result looks and feels beautifully smooth and natural.

The Dental Bonding Procedure


Our Sandy Springs dentist will begin the dental bonding process by examining your teeth to determine the precise improvements. He then slightly roughens the teeth surfaces using a mild etching solution that creates tiny grooves for the resin material to adhere to. Dr. Flax only etches the enamel that will have bonding material — just enough for ideal adhesive strength.

Local Anesthetic

Your comfort is Dr. Flax’s top priority, so he may administer a local anesthetic to numb the bonding area before applying the resin. The numbness will block any sensitivity or discomfort as he sculpts the resin on your teeth.

Resin Application and Sculpting

Dr. Flax selects a resin material perfectly matched to your natural tooth shade. He then meticulously sculpts the putty-like resin into the desired shape to fix chips, close gaps, lengthen teeth, or create other improvements. Dr. Flax’s artistic eye and experience enable him to create stunning, seamless dental bonding work.

Curing the Resin

Once the resin is sculpted for beautiful effects, Dr. Flax uses a special curing light to harden it. The light triggers the bonding material to set hard and adhere to the teeth below. The resin is now securely bonded to create your new smile.

Finishing and Polishing

Artistry goes into the polishing stage as well. Dr. Flax carefully polishes the cured resin using fine-grit tools to achieve a smooth finish. The bonding will look and feel natural against your tongue. There are no rough spots or edges — just flawless new teeth.

The moment you’ve been waiting for arrives when Dr. Flax lets you look in the mirror to see the final result! Thanks to his attention to shade-matching, shape, and polish, your dental bonding will appear beautifully seamless and bright.

Caring for Dental Bonding

With proper care, your dental bonding results can last five to 10 years or more. Dr. Flax recommends:

  • Brushing twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing once daily to remove plaque buildup
  • Seeing Dr. Flax every six months for professional cleanings 
  • Avoiding extremely hard, crunchy, or sticky foods
  • Wearing a night guard if you clench or grind your teeth
  • Not biting nails or chewing on pens/pencils
  • Giving up tobacco, if applicable, as smoking can stain bonding
  • Visiting our Atlanta dental office immediately if bonding chips or cracks for repair

With good oral hygiene and avoiding damaging habits, your dental bonding will maintain its beauty. Dr. Flax can easily patch any damaged spots or replace old bonding as needed over time.


Does dental bonding stain?

Bonding resin can absorb stains from foods, smoking, and other environmental factors. Be diligent about brushing after eating or drinking stain-causing products. See your dentist every six months for polishing to keep your bonding looking its brightest.

Can you match the dental bonding color to my natural tooth shade?

Yes, matching the color is key for beautiful, natural-looking results. Your dentist will carefully assess your tooth hues and select the perfect bonding resin shade to blend with surrounding teeth seamlessly.

Is dental bonding painful?

Not at all! Your dentist will numb the treatment area so you won’t feel pain during the bonding application and sculpting process. Most patients report high comfort levels.

How long does dental bonding last?

With good care, bonding typically lasts five to 10 years. Avoid biting hard foods or habits like nail biting. See your dentist twice annually to assess bonding condition and repair any damage early.
