Tooth bonding can be a quick and economical option to address minor cosmetic concerns or to repair teeth that are chipped, cracked or damaged. This cosmetic procedure can be completed in our Sandy Springs dentist office, often during a single visit without the need for a numbing agent, or local anesthetic.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect
Cosmetic tooth bonding is basically the same process as a resin composite dental filling. Dr. Paulen will apply a tooth-colored resin directly to the tooth, sculpt it into the desired shape, and cures the material with a special light. Little or no preparation of the tooth is needed.
Dental bonding is a relatively affordable procedure, similar in cost to a dental filling. Although commonly covered by dental insurance, it is always best to determine your benefits prior to your treatment.
No. Although the tooth bonding process is compared to a dental filling procedure, it is not used to fill cavities. The material is different and may not sufficiently restore a tooth that has been damage by decay.
