If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned or otherwise imperfect tooth that the needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest tooth bonding which can be done in one appointment. The process includes applying the composite resin, matching shade to blend with your tooth. A curing light is used to harden the composite resin, then the restoration is polished. In just one appointment, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile. However, you need to schedule a consultation with the dentist first to see if bonding work for your tooth condition. A chipped tooth usually is caused by a forced impact or tooth decay underneath which may incur other dental problems such as visible/ invisible fracture lines or dental infection.
CASE 5 :chipped upper front tooth with rough edges.
A simple tooth color bonding and smoothing out of rough edges can restore back a beautiful smile. The treatment can be done within 1 hour.
Fixing 1 chipped tooth corner with bonding costs approximately $150
CASE 7 : Large gap exists between 2 front teeth.
To close the gap, the bondings have to be done on both teeth. The bonding on side edges of teeth will close half of the space, so they will have the same size. Closing each gap involves 2 bondings.
We will not fix tiny center gap with less than 0.5 mm width
Cost: $150-$180 / bonding
Closing each gap between teeth with bonding costs approximately $300
CASE 8:congenital missing lateral incisors, leaving large spaces between teeth,
Bonding with composite resin to entire tooth surface can close spaces, change the shape of canines to more appealing shape of missing lateral incisors.
Cost: $300 / bonding.
CASE 9 :space between upper front teeth, the side teeth are smaller than normal. Bonding can help to close gaps, add body to the smaller teeth to change shape and even color of the tooth.
Bonding on 1 small lateral incisor in this case costs approximately $300
CASE 10 large gap between 2 center front teeth and root abfraction. We use tooth filling/ bonding technique to close large gap between teeth, cover tooth root exposed from abrasion and gum receding. In this case, 7 teeth were treated with bondings/ fillings.
Cost:$100-$380 / filling or bonding

Labial composite resin veneers/ bondings
Case 12: dark teeth from tetracycline stain or genetic,
These stains/ discoloration come from inside of the tooth. Teeth bleaching will not be able to remove these stains Labial composite veneers can mask the discoloration with lighter tooth color. The procedure usually does not require removal of any tooth structure and can be done in one appointment.
Cost : $ 380/bonding
Making teeth look more aesthetic with crown lengthening to recontour gum line and changing tooth shape with bondings
Case 13: the 2 lateral incisors have been missing, leaving small side gaps, gum line is not well defined. Additionally, when biting down, the front teeth locked into a slight criss cross position (image 1 and image 2)
Image 3: crown lengthening procedure has been performed to recontour gum line and make teeth appear longer
Image 4: bonding procedure has been done on 4 front teeth to close gaps and reshape the canines into lateral incisors. Edges of teeth has been adjusted to take out off criss cross position for better function.
Image 4 and 5: final result: very appealing smile!
