Why Choose Dr. Allan S. Mohr for Cosmetic Bonding?
- Alternative Treatment to Porcelain Veneers
- Instantly Corrects Stains, Small Chips & Minor Gaps
- Specially-Formulated Color to Match Your Natural Smile
What is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is a non-invasive procedure in which Dr. Mohr applies a composite resin material to a compromised tooth and literally molds it to hide flaws. With it, he can make the following things disappear:
- Stains that don’t respond to bleaching
- Small chips
- Minor gaps
- Slightly misshapen or undersized teeth
What is the Procedure Like?
After a brief exam with Dr. Mohr, he’ll place a liquid composite resin on your tooth that has been specially colored to match your smile. This will be used to build up any missing or damaged enamel. Once it is on your tooth, Dr. Mohr will shape it to improve your tooth’s appearance in every way. After getting your final approval, he’ll harden it with a curing light, and your new smile will be ready for the world!
Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding
- Fast: The procedure can usually be completed in an hour or less.
- Painless: Patient’s don’t even need local anesthesia to feel completely comfortable from beginning to end.
- Durable: While cosmetic bonding isn’t as permanent as porcelain veneers, the results can be expected to last for up to 10 years with the proper maintenance (which only consists of regular oral hygiene).
- Affordable: Cosmetic bonding is one of the most cost-effective cosmetic treatments available today.

Cosmetic Bonding FAQs
Cosmetic bonding is a wonderful treatment for most patients who want to correct minor flaws in their teeth. Before you commit to it, however, you likely have some questions about it. That’s why we have compiled the following list of cosmetic bonding FAQs. If you don’t see the information you were hoping for, please contact our team directly.
Does Cosmetic Bonding Ever Stain?
The bonding material can look good for many years, but it might become stained over time with repeated exposure to coffee, red wine, and other staining substances. To protect your new look from discoloration, you may find it helpful to drink dark beverages through a straw and be moderate in your consumption of foods that might cause stains (such as berries). Also, keep in mind that smoking may cause the bonding to become yellow over time.
What Is the Bonding Material Made Out Of?
The resin used in cosmetic dental bonding is the same material that we use for tooth-colored fillings. It is composed of a mixture of plastic and glass particles. It is quite biocompatible, which means that it tends to work well with the human body.
Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Because cosmetic dental bonding is usually considered a purely elective procedure, it is unlikely that your insurance will provide any type of coverage for it. If you do not want to pay for the entirety of your bonding treatment upfront, our team can help you look into third-party financing from CareCredit or Lending Club.
Is There a Recovery Period After the Bonding Procedure?
There is virtually no recovery period following the dental bonding procedure. The curing light will ensure that your bonding is as hard as it is going to get, so you will be able to eat and drink immediately following your appointment. If you feel any soreness in your mouth, it should be very mild and subside within a few days. Also, you may notice that your mouth feels a little strange. That is normal because the oral cavity is very sensitive to any changes. You should adjust to the new feeling of your smile fairly quickly.
How Many Teeth Can I Get Treated with Cosmetic Bonding?
Usually, we recommend that patients who would like to improve the appearance of just one or two teeth get cosmetic bonding. If you would like a more extensive smile transformation, we might suggest that you invest in porcelain veneers or another treatment that is designed to offer more dramatic results.
