‘‘Everything was top-notch from start to finish! The office is modern and streamlined, clean in appearance. I enjoyed looking at all the canvas art paintings on the walls of bright white smiles and creative glittery lipsticks! Alexis did a GREAT job cleaning my teeth, and she took digital images of my teeth to supplement the x-rays. Very thorough, I’m excited to return! ALL of the staff, including Dr. Griffin, was welcoming and professional.’’

Dental Bonding FAQs
- How long does dental bonding last?
Dental bonding can last up to a decade with proper oral hygiene care. It depends on the location of your bonding and your eating habits.
We encourage patients to avoid biting directly into food to ensure the sustainability of your dental bonding!
- Is dental bonding painful?
Dental bonding is a non-invasive and pain-free procedure. The composite resin used is sculpted on your tooth, hardened with a special light, and then polished to match your natural teeth.
It can be applied and finished in one visit, which can take anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour! Some procedures can take at least two appointments, depending on how many teeth you want to be fixed.
- What’s the difference between dental bonding vs. veneers?
Dental bonding is an alternative and less invasive cosmetic procedure when compared to porcelain veneers. It’s a great choice for low-pressure areas like your front teeth, because of less daily wear and tear.
Dental bonding is less expensive and requires less alteration of your natural tooth structure when compared to porcelain veneers. However, veneers do tend to be stronger and more durable.
Dental bonding is perfect for filling cavities, hiding dark tooth discolorations or stains, repairing chipped or cracked teeth, and closing gaps between teeth. If you require more dental care to achieve your dream smile, we encourage you to check out our other cosmetic dentistry services!
