To learn more about how dental bonding can impact your life, read our guide below.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a popular treatment for patients looking to enhance the appearance and health of their smile. For this procedure, a durable dental resin is applied to damaged or flawed teeth and molded to help correct any issues. Though the material isn’t as tough as porcelain, it’s a great solution for cosmetic or restorative problems in a smile.
The resin is completely customizable, meaning Dr. Kovacevic can match the color and shape of your surrounding teeth to create a flawlessly blended appearance. The doctor can use the resin to correct teeth with any of the following issues:
- Stains and discoloration
- Chips and cracks
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding offers several unique benefits that other cosmetic procedures don’t, including:
- Convenience — Dental bonding is typically completed in one appointment lasting roughly an hour, depending on how many teeth need treatment.
- Cost — Dental bonding is one of the more affordable cosmetic treatments. Best of all, insurance frequently covers most of the cost as it is both a cosmetic and restorative procedure.
- Durability — With proper care and treatment, your bonding can last up to ten years.
- Versatility — Unlike some cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening, dental bonding can treat a range of different issues, even sometimes simultaneously.
- Attractiveness — The resin used for bonding mimics the color of your natural teeth to ensure a stunning appearance.
The Dental Bonding Process
Typically, the dental bonding procedure takes about an hour and can be completed in the comfort of our Greensburg office. The process is painless and non-invasive, so no anesthesia is required.
First, we’ll clean the tooth thoroughly to remove any existing plaque buildup. Then, we’ll shave a small portion of the enamel off to create a surface the resin can attach to effectively. The dental resin will dry and adhere to the tooth securely, whether it’s filling a hole, fixing a gap, or reshaping a tooth.
Once the composite resin has set, Dr. Kovacevic will shape it so that it feels comfortable and natural in your bite. We’ll also ensure that the color matches your surrounding smile perfectly to complete your enhanced and beautiful smile.

How is the recovery following a dental bonding procedure?
What’s the difference between dental bonding and veneers?
With a proper oral hygiene routine consisting of brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and rinsing in between meals in addition to regular checkups and professional cleanings at our office, you can expect dental bonding to last ten years.
Porcelain veneers are capable of dramatically changing an entire smile, while dental bonding can enhance the structure and aesthetics of individual teeth. Veneers are more durable, typically lasting up to 20 years. They require two visits to our office, where an impression will be made and the veneers will be placed on the front of the teeth. While dental bonding is added to the teeth, veneers are thin-wafer shells that are attached to the fronts of the teeth.
