Cosmetic Dental Bonding in El Paso, TX

Repair misaligned, discolored, gapped, or chipped teeth with cosmetic dental bonding.

What is Composite Bonding for Teeth?

If you want to improve the look of gapped teeth, stained teeth, slightly crooked teeth, or other aesthetic issues, composite bonding may be right for you.

Bonding is an affordable, cosmetic dental treatment in which a tooth-colored composite resin is placed directly on existing teeth. The entire procedure can be completed within a single appointment, sometimes even under an hour depending on the desired results. Mesa Street Dental is your go-to dentist for dental bonding in El Paso, TX.

When might you need cosmetic dental bonding?

  • Discolored Teeth: The bonding agent can cover the entire surface of a tooth to brighten a discolored tooth.
  • Chipped Teeth/Tooth Gaps: Dental bonding can also be attached along the edges of a tooth that’s been chipped or to fill in a tooth gap.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Bonding can also be used to correct the appearance of teeth that are misaligned to a small degree.
  • Disproportionate Teeth: For patients with short or small teeth, composite bonding can lengthen or widen teeth that appear disproportionate next to others.
  • Weakened Teeth/Exposed Roots: Teeth with decay and cavities can be held together in place with strong, composite bonding. Or, if a patient’s gums are receding and exposing tooth roots, composite dental bonding can cover the roots for extra protection.

The composite bonding lasts for about 3-5 years before needing to be replaced. The material might either wear down or begin to stain, but will last longer with regular dental care including daily brushing and flossing and professional dental cleanings twice a year.

Dental Bonding FAQs 


Veneers are very thin layers of porcelain that cover an entire tooth. Dental bonding can cover a tooth or just be added to areas of it to create a more aesthetically pleasing look. While they can be used for a single tooth, in general, veneers are used for multiple teeth to create a perfect smile. Composite dental bonding can be used on just one tooth to fix a wide variety of issues. While much cheaper than veneers, dental bonding may not last as long.

No! Dental bonding is not an invasive procedure so there are no needles required. Your El Paso dentist may use a drill but it will only be to shape or polish the resin after it’s been bonded to the tooth. As this is not your natural tooth, it won’t cause any pain. 

No matter how much bonding your tooth needs, there are many shades of resin your dentist can use to match the color of your natural enamel. Dental bonding is a great way to fix imperfections without having to resort to a full set of veneers. If you live in the El Paso, TX area and you’re looking for a dentist near you who provides dental bonding services, give Mesa Street Dental a call.

Maintain a good oral hygiene routine by flossing daily, brushing twice daily and seeing your dentist every 6 months. Be aware that dental bonding can stain if overly exposed to things like red wine, coffee or cigarettes and this may cause a discrepancy in the color of your teeth. If you are thinking of getting your teeth whitened, do this before the dental bonding process so your El Paso dentist can match the composite bond to your new tooth color.
