Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that allows the dentist to reshape or repair your smile using composite resin. Cosmetic bonding is particularly ideal if you’re insecure about the appearance of your smile or want an affordable alternative to invasive and more costly procedures such as orthodontics or veneers. With bonding, chipped or uneven teeth can be repaired easily and affordably, restoring your self-confidence. Additionally, bonding is often completed in a single visit and doesn’t require any anesthetic!
As with most cosmetic procedures, bonding will wear and discolor over time, eventually needing to be replaced; however, bonding is very durable and typically lasts many years.
Reasons for cosmetic bonding:
What does dental bonding involve?
To begin, the dentist will isolate the teeth included in the procedure, etching them in preparation for bonding. After applying the etching conditioning liquid, the surface of the teeth will have small crevices that allow the tooth stronger adhesion with the bonding agent.
The dentist will then apply a bonding resin which cements the composite in place. After several layers of tooth-colored composite are applied, the composite and bonding resin are shaped and hardened with a specially calibrated light. Once the composite is fully set, the bonded areas are smoothed, buffed, and polished to blend in naturally with the surrounding teeth.

I meant Diane my Dental Hygienist for the first time and loved her. Very patience and explained everything before she started working with you. Asked how you were doing often and did amazing job on my teeth. I saw the before and after pictures. Even Dr Greco commented what a great job she did. Very pleased
Excellent. I'm amazed at the thorough explanation of my dental issues. I was seen quickly for my sudden tooth problem. I feel assured Dr Greco will fix my problem. Thank you.

This office is wonderful. I had an emergency visit and they were so friendly and efficient getting me in right away.

Dr. Greco is an amazing,kind, compassionate Dentist! His skills in cosmetic reshaping of crooked chipped teeth is unparalleled excellence!!! After having 14 cancer related surgeries my confidence in my smile had vanished. Dr. Greco offered to help me restore my smile! I wish I could Share with you my before and after pictures! Words of praise are NOT ENOUGH to express my GRATITUDE!!! Dr. Greco is the very epiphany of TRUST and ethics!!!! He NEVER Fails to properly explain in great detail what he is going to do. I should know for he has been my personal dentist for over 15 years. Anyone who would give a review to contradict this sadly mistaken and has no clue what they are talking about. There is no other Dentist in all of the valley as informative and professional as Dr.Greco and his amazing Staff!!

I’ve been going here for over 15 years. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. Everyone is so caring. Diana is an awesome hygienist and of course Dr. Greco is the best. Highly recommend!
Dr. Greco and his whole team are exceptional. I have been going to see him for seven years and have never had a bad experience. Today I had my second cleaning by his new hygienist, Diana, and she was exceptional. That is one of the things I love about going to see Dr. Greco, he always ensures that his team is extremely competent, friendly and happy.
Dr. Greco and His Staff are the BEST!!!! I didn’t like going to the Dentist now I look forward to going because of these people. They are truly caring people!!!! There are truly none Better than this office!!!!
