Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a corrective dental treatment that is used both to keep the functionality of the affected teeth and for cosmetic purposes. Bonding involves the use of tooth-colored resin to repair chipped teeth, remove spaces between teeth, lengthen teeth, change the shape of teeth, fill in cavities, cover the surface of stained teeth for whitening purposes, and protect the roots of exposed teeth that due to receding gums. It is one of the most versatile, affordable, and popularly done dental procedures.

The Napa Valley Dental Group in Napa, CA provides cosmetic bonding as a solution for dental conditions that only need minor treatment.

What Takes Place During Bonding?

Bonding can be done during one dental visit. However, if many teeth need to be bonded, several visits may be required to complete the treatment. After inspecting the suitability of bonding for your teeth, your dentist will refer to a shade guide to select which resin color matches the color of your natural teeth.

Next, etching will be slightly done on the surface of your tooth to roughen it, so that the bond will more easily take hold. After clearing away residual debris from the etching, dental conditioner is placed on your tooth to ensure adhesion of the bonding material further.

When ready, your dentist will apply the tooth-colored resin, molding and smoothing it until it is in the correct shape. Ultraviolet light is then used to make the resin hard.

More molding and shaping may be done as necessary. The whole procedure typically takes one hour for each tooth that is cosmetically bonded.

Why Bonding is Well Accepted by Patients

Unless it is used to fill in cavities, bonding will not require the use of anesthesia. It is a relatively inexpensive and simple procedure to perform, which does not significantly limit or inconvenience patients and their day-to-day routines.

Bonding also lasts long, provided the bonded teeth are not subjected to dental trauma or abuse such as repeatedly chewing on ice. When well taken care of like natural teeth, teeth that have been bonded may last for many years. Bonded teeth may require a touch-up only after your dentist notices some chipping on the resin.

Your dentist will recommend cosmetic bonding as long as it is suitable for your teeth. For your consultation, please contact us online or call (707) 257-2400 to schedule your appointment. Our office is located at 2119 Jefferson St. Napa, CA 94559.

Excellent care and wonderful front of house staff which makes such a difference. 5 stars! We were very happy with the dental work out son received in a caring and warm atmosphere.


I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved
