What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is one of the easiest cosmetic treatments available and can be completed in just one appointment with Dr. Kirk E. Kooker, our practiced dentist. Dental bonding is a treatment in which we apply composite resin to the surface of a tooth in order to restore and improve the appearance and function of the tooth. Composite resin is a type of durable plastic that we will match to the color of your natural smile.

How does dental bonding work?

Dr. Kirk E. Kooker prepares the tooth for dental bonding by lightly etching the tooth enamel and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, the composite resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape. After it hardens, the composite resin is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural and beautiful shine.
