Tooth Bonding An Overview
Chapel Hill dentists Dr. James Furgurson, Dr. David Hoyle and Dr. Nathan White can correct minor tooth damage and cosmetic dental concerns using cosmetic tooth bonding. This is a fast, affordable treatment that is usually completed in a single visit to our Chapel Hill dentist office.
Tooth bonding is similar to a dental filling, a relatively easy and painless procedure that can be used to treat a range of concerns:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Tooth stains
- Gaps between teeth, diastemas
Tooth bonding is often a convenient and economical treatment option for young patients or adult patients not ready for dental veneers.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect
How Does Tooth Bonding Work?
Cosmetic tooth bonding is basically the same process as a resin dental filling. Your Chapel Hill dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin directly to the tooth, sculpt it into the desired shape, and cure the material with a special light. Little or no preparation of the tooth is needed.
How long will it last?
With proper care and maintenance, you can expect most tooth bonding to last up to 10 years or more.
How much does tooth bonding cost?
Dental bonding is a relatively affordable procedure and is commonly covered by dental insurance, especially in the instance of tooth decay or damage. Our staff will work with you to maximize your dental health benefits and discuss your portion of the total cost.
