Cosmetic Dental Bonding | Plymouth, MN

Teeth issues like chips, cracks, and decay can lead to pain and negatively impact your smile. Fortunately, the Smile Design team can address these problems effectively and holistically. Some people may think these minor issues don’t justify tooth replacement or restoration, but that’s where our dental bonding service excels. It offers a discreet solution for minor dental problems. Discover more about dental bonding and how it creates your ideal smile.


What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Bonding repairs cracks and chips to produce a more symmetrical and pleasing smile. The process involves layering a custom-shaded resin to restore the tooth. It is a non-intrusive procedure.


What Materials are used?

We use custom-shaded composite resin. While it is not as durable as natural teeth, it produces a pleasant feel and seldom breaks. While the lack of hardiness may be a downside, this procedure is not as intrusive as other cosmetic treatments.


How Cosmetic Dental Bonding Works

First, you will visit our team at Smile Design for a consultation. If we decide dental bonding is the best route to getting your dream smile, you will return for a second appointment. Our dentist will use a shade chart to create the perfect resin match for your smile. Then, they will roughen the area of the tooth and apply a conditioning liquid. The resin is then applied, molded, and cured. Once the hardening process has finished, our team will polish the tooth.


How long does bonding take?

Depending on the complexity, the process takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. Another benefit of this treatment is that you can continue as usual after finishing the process.


Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Bonding

The number one reason people choose cosmetic dental bonding is to improve smile aesthetics and self-confidence. Chips and cracks lead to an asymmetrical smile. At Smile Design, we want you to have the smile you deserve. We also appreciate the non-invasive nature of this procedure. This treatment does not remove current tooth material. It is also a budget-friendly option for small-scale repairs.


Common Uses of Dental Bonding

The primary problems are:

  • Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Reshaping misaligned or uneven teeth


Candidacy and Considerations

The most essential prerequisite is having no issues like cavities or gum disease. The natural color and alignment of teeth are crucial, as bonding may not be adequate for stained teeth or significant misalignments. We also ask our clients to consider their long-term dental goals and be willing to adopt good oral habits to maintain the longevity of the bonding material. Please note that bonding aims to repair minor cosmetic issues. For more extensive concerns, consider our alternative cosmetic treatments.



There are two steps: maintaining oral hygiene and dental check-ups. Brushing and flossing twice a day will help the dental bond look as good as possible for as long as possible and preserve the tooth so that no repairs are needed. Checkups are excellent, but if you have a dental bond, we want to monitor it and ensure no touch-ups are required.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. They are a cornerstone of cosmetic dentistry, offering a revolutionary way to correct dental imperfections such as chips, stains, gaps, or misshapen teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions


Can dental bonding fix all dental imperfections?

Our bonding service is ideal for minor chips, cracks, and reshaping needs. Severe imperfections like veneers or crowns may need a different treatment.


Is dental bonding painful?

Before the bonding material is applied, the dentist may etch the tooth’s surface to help it adhere better. Some of our patients may experience minor discomfort or sensitivity. Local anesthesia is not required unless the tooth is sensitive.


How long does dental bonding last?

The lifespan depends on several factors, including the patient’s oral hygiene, biting force, and location. On average, our bonding can last between 3 to 10 years before requiring touch-ups or replacement. Maintaining good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing, flossing, and check-ups, prolongs the lifespan.


Can dental bonding be reversed?

Dental bonding is not a reversible procedure in the same way as dental implants. However, if a patient is dissatisfied or the material becomes damaged or discolored, our team will replace or remove it. The process involves removing the material and applying new bonding to achieve the desired outcome.
