Did you chip your tooth last time you played pick-up football? Or maybe you have a stain on a front tooth that bothers you. These problems are minor, but they can still be annoying. Luckily, these issues and many others can be fixed by a simple procedure: dental bonding.

If you need dental bonding services in Claremont, CA, San Dimas, CA, or La Verne, CA, contact Claremont Dental Institute.


Dental bonding is a process where a strong plastic resin is attached to your tooth or teeth, then hardened into place with a special light. The resin will match the color of your teeth perfectly. Dental bonding can be used for practical purposes, like filling a cavity, or for cosmetic purposes, like hiding stains. Other uses include:

  • Repairing chipped teeth
  • Changing the shape of teeth
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Protecting exposed tooth roots when patients have receding gums

If you don’t like the way your teeth look, you have several options, including veneers or crowns. However, these options often take a lot of time and money.

Dental bonding is painless, fast, and relatively affordable—it’s perfect for minor repairs.

“Bonding can ususally be done in a single visit to our office. Although not as permanent as veneers or crowns, it often is a great economic solution to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured, discolored tooth. I will explain the options and together we will pick out the perfect solution for you."
—Dr. Vijay Patel
