Cosmetic Dental Bonding Huntersville, NC
A Natural-Looking Solution to Tooth Damage
Let’s face it— accidents happen. Whether you’re busy on the go or playing your favorite sport, one thing can lead to another and you’re suddenly left with a damaged tooth. Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth, while typically harmless, can make it difficult to smile with confidence. Fortunately, dental bonding may be the ideal solution to restoring your beautiful smile.
At Lake Norman Dentistry, our Huntersville dentist Dr. Guice can complete a dental bonding procedure to restore your damaged tooth or make aesthetic changes that will improve the appearance of your smile.
We’re proud to offer this affordable, durable, and convenient treatment to patients of all ages across Mecklenburg County. We also accept North Carolina patients from Charlotte, Mint Hill, Concord, and surrounding areas.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic restoration in which our expert dentist applies a customizable resin material to your tooth, shaping it until it fits perfectly within your smile. Dr. Guice will ensure the resin matches the shape and color of your surrounding teeth for a seamless appearance.
This non-invasive treatment can help conceal minor cosmetic imperfections like they never even happened. Dental bonding is a convenient alternative to placing porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Since we can typically complete cosmetic bonding in just one visit to our Huntersville office, it’s the fastest way to complete your smile transformation.

Dental Bonding Process
Dental bonding typically takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth, so many patients can enjoy a rejuvenated smile after one visit to Dr. Guice’s office. Best of all, because this procedure is quick and non-invasive, most patients won’t require local anesthesia.
Unlike dental crowns or veneers, dental bonding doesn't require any preparation before application. You’ll begin to enjoy a new smile while retaining your tooth’s natural structure.
After Dr. Guice has matched the dental resin to your natural teeth, he’ll bond it to the targeted tooth and mold it to the desired shape. After smoothing the resin and making any necessary adjustments, your Huntersville dentist will finish the procedure with a polish. You’re then ready to show off your new smile!
