Composite Resin Bonding
Composite resin bonding (or simply, bonding) is used in a variety of general, cosmetic and emergency dental procedures. However, the effectiveness of composite bonding really shines in cosmetic procedures. Today’s composites offer excellent shade matching, bond strength and physical properties that closely mimic natural teeth.
Composite Resin Bonding Services/Applications:
- Fill in natural gaps in between teeth
- Composite veneers to address discoloration
- Restoration of chipped, cracked, fractured and decayed teeth
- Elongation of worn-down teeth
- Temporarily stabilize a tooth that has been loosened by trauma
Composite bonding involves a high degree of artistry. The natural shape and curvature of teeth must be reproduced, so finding a dentist who has extensive experience in the discipline is crucial to the result. The experts at Bash Dental have the experience necessary to ensure the highest level of structural and cosmetic quality for desirable, long-lasting results.

- Typically takes just one visit
- Minimally invasive procedure with little to no pain during or post-procedure

A woman came to us concerned about the natural gap in between her two front teeth. She was looking for a more cosmetically pleasing smile. After discussing her options— Dr. Bash and the patient decided on bonding to fill in the gap. In just one visit, we were able to achieve an esthetically pleasing result.
This young patient is a hockey player and came into Dr. Bash’s office on a Sunday as an emergency. He had fallen while rollerblading and chipped his front teeth. Treatment was more than cosmetic as the patient ended up fracturing the root of his natural tooth. To prevent mobility and possible loss of the teeth, Dr. Bash applied a tooth-colored splint— confident it would heal.
Other approaches may have called for a more expensive treatment procedure like endodontic therapy (root canals, crowns or veneers). Dr. Bash was able to fix his teeth same-day, chair-side with fillings and contouring. Now, his smile looks brand new. Dr. Bash was able to gain the same effect with just filling material, which is less abrasive to the natural tooth. This will last just as long if not longer than alternative methods.
