Cosmetic Dental Bonding
The Most Natural and Conservative Way to Improve Your Smile
What if you could improve your smile without lengthy or invasive surgeries and procedures? Biologically friendly, BPA-free composite bonding is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments in our Katy, TX dental office.
As part of her holistic approach to dentistry, Dr. Katie strives to preserve the healthy part of your teeth, while reshaping and improving them by adding to the existing structure. Oftentimes, our cosmetic treatments are reversible!
The Misconception about Dental Bonding
Many dentists choose to make only small repairs to the teeth using tooth bonding because traditionally, dental crowns and veneers are the most accepted way to alter the appearance of teeth. Dr. Katie, however, has received extensive training in Brazil and the United States to learn and implement cosmetic bonding to solve cosmetic issues that go beyond mere chips and gapped teeth.
Dr. Katie is world-renowned for her work with cosmetic bonding both for small cosmetic fixes and complete smile makeovers. Because changing teeth changes the bite, Dr. Katie uses T-scan technology to ensure a properly balanced bite. A balanced bite means fewer headaches and long-lasting dentistry.
She not only provides this innovative treatment to families in Katy, but she also teaches other dentists to successfully use dental bonding in their own practices.
Cosmetic dental bonding can address:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen or worn teeth
- Shortened teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Non-uniform looking teeth
- Damaged teeth
- Disguising gum recession and protecting roots

Artistry Meets Dental Science
For smile makeovers, Dr. Katie will take impressions of the teeth and design the restorations on a model before beginning treatment in your mouth. This allows her to test the appearance of the teeth as well as how they bite together and function while you eat and speak.
In most cases, she can even make it possible for you to try on your new smile before treatment even begins. We use digital photography, 3-D scans, and predictive software to give you an accurate glimpse of what your face and smile will look like once treatment is complete—even while talking and making different facial expressions. It’s almost like seeing the future!
Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding
Unlike crowns and veneers, which require the removal of substantial tooth structure to make space for these indirect (from the laboratory) cosmetic treatments, dental bonding adds to existing tooth structure while removing as little healthy tooth as possible. In many cases, no anesthetic is required, and treatment often takes just a single dental appointment.
Since composite comes in a variety of colors, Dr. Katie can realistically shade the teeth to look natural with darker and lighter areas, just like your natural teeth. She can even create composite veneers right in our dental office. This results in a smile that looks like you were born with it—only better!
