What is Dental Bonding? Marietta Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental Care Center at Kennestone in Marietta understands the significance of a bright and confident smile. Unfortunately, one chipped or misshaped tooth can throw off the balance of your entire smile. The good news is that dental bonding is a versatile and pain-free cosmetic procedure that offers fast results.

How Dental Bonding Can Improve Your Smile

Dental bonding is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to rebuild small portions of tooth enamel to make teeth look whole and healthy again. We frequently use it to repair imperfections such as chips, cracks, discolorations, and small gaps.

The composite resin used in dental bonding can be color-matched to your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result. Instead of covering the tooth with a veneer or crown, bonding is only shaped over the area of concern.

Dental Bonding — The Procedure

If dental bonding is right for your chipped, stained, or misshaped tooth, we can complete your treatment in a single appointment. Unlike some dental procedures, minimal preparation is needed for bonding. Our dentist will choose a composite resin color that matches your teeth, then gently roughen the surface and apply a conditioning liquid.

Then, we will mold the pliable composite resin onto your tooth, sculpting it to the desired shape. A special light is used to harden the resin, curing it in place. When you look in the mirror, the treated tooth will look completely whole again! Numbing is rarely needed.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
