What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a common practice that dentists trust to repair a damaged tooth, cover a cosmetic flaw, or use in place of an amalgam filling. Dr. Munro can customize your bonding solution to look completely natural in your mouth, making it a cost-effective way to fix minor tooth damage and cosmetic imperfections. Best of all, dental bonding is a minimally invasive and virtually painless procedure.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
There are several benefits to dental bonding that make it a popular dental treatment, such as:
- Versatility: Dr. Munro can use dental bonding as both a cosmetic and restorative treatment.
- Affordability: Compared to more costly procedures like porcelain veneers, dental bonding is a cost-effective treatment option.
- Short Procedure: Your dental bonding treatment can be completed in just one visit to our Pembroke office. Dental bonding takes about one hour per tooth.
- Longevity & Durability: Dental bonding is a durable restoration designed to withstand your daily activities, and can last up to 10 years with proper care.
- Minimally Invasive Procedure: Dental bonding is a virtually painless procedure that doesn’t require any form of surgery.
What Can Dental Bonding Fix?
Dental bonding is a versatile treatment that Dr. Munro can use to repair a host of dental problems. He may utilize this treatment to:
- Repair decayed teeth

The Dental Bonding Process
Our dental bonding process is typically completed in one short appointment at our Pembroke office. Typically, dental bonding takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.
There’s hardly any preparation needed before we apply your dental bonding treatment. We offer sedation dentistry for patients who need it, but many patients don’t need this step. Patients who benefit most from sedation are those who have decayed or broken teeth that expose or are near the tooth root.
Dr. Munro will style your dental resin to ensure it blends seamlessly with your natural smile. Once he’s made the perfect match, he’ll place the solution on your tooth. Once it bonds with the tooth, we’ll smooth it to your desired shape. Dr. Munro will finish by brushing a polishing treatment over the tooth. You’re then ready to leave our Pembroke office with a beautiful new smile!
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does dental bonding last?
With the proper care and maintenance, dental bonding can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced. Proper care and maintenance include brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing with mouthwash between meals. It’s also important to schedule biannual appointments at our Pembroke office for routine dental exams and cleanings. This will keep your oral health and dental bonding in good condition.
How much does dental bonding cost?
The exact cost of your dental bonding procedure will depend on several factors, such as how many teeth require treatment. Dr. Munro will provide you with a cost estimate at your initial consultation.
We also recommend visiting our financing page to learn more about our affordable payment options, including CareCredit, a third-party financing company designed to help patients cover their treatment costs. Applying online is quick and easy, and you may be eligible for financial aid regardless of your insurance status.
What’s the difference between dental bonding and porcelain veneers?
Unlike porcelain veneers, dental bonding utilizes a special resin to restore your damaged or stained teeth. Porcelain veneers, however, consist of thin, tooth-colored shells affixed to the surfaces of your teeth. Typically, dental bonding is the better solution to repair chipped or cracked teeth. Dr. Munro will determine which treatment is best for you at your initial consultation.
