Changing Smiles by Bonding
Skill, Technology, and a little “Magic”
With the wonderful age of dental bonding, teeth can be made healthy and beautiful in most cases without multiple appointments, anesthesia, temporaries and at less expense than crowns.
Magic? Not really.
Bonding techniques have been around for years, and improvements in dental materials have made it one of the most effective and versatile treatments in dentistry.
Bonding is a procedure in which a white composite resin is applied to the natural outer surface of the tooth. The tooth is first polished, then “conditioned” by painting a clear solution on the surface. The final composite material sticks to the conditioning solution and is cured with a high-intensity light that hardens the bond in seconds.
Bonding works its real magic repairing chipped teeth and filling diastemas, or spaces between front teeth. We can also change the shape of teeth to make crooked or uneven teeth straighter. And what about the color? We can match the color of your existing teeth, or go as bright and dazzling as you wish.
Bonding works best in low-stress areas of the mouth. It’s not a cure-all for every dental problem, but in most cases, it can improve your smile in almost no time. Give us a call if you’re interested, chances are we can work some magic on your smile!

Dr. Angela Burns moved to Austin 10 years ago and instantly fell in love with our beautiful city. Dr. Burns is originally from the Texarkana area. She attended Texas A&M for her undergraduate degree and The University of Tennessee Health Science Center for her degree in dental surgery (DDS). Dr. Burns is committed to providing her patients with gentle, technologically advanced dental treatment. She attends an average of 60 hours of continuing education every year. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Texas Dental Association, and the Capital Area Dental Society. Dr. Burns and her husband, Gary, have an 11-year-old daughter, Sydney, who is a proud 6th grader at Hill Country Middle School. She is also very involved in the Eanes PTO, her church, and loves raising her family in the Westlake community. “Growing up, I was drawn to mediating and helping others feel more included and less anxious. I was a camp counselor, student government officer and being the oldest of five, I was the family mediator. I found that I had a calling to help alleviate stressful situations for others and realized that being a good listener was something that was key to this. These skills really helped guide me into becoming a dentist that has based my practice on relationships, empathy and a sense of comfort. I knew that I wanted to provide an atmosphere that felt like home when others walked in. Our practice is small, personal and state of the art and we hope you feel like you’re hanging out with friends when you are here!” When she is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Burns enjoys traveling, hiking the greenbelt, enjoying Austin’s music scene, and eating Amy’s Ice Cream.
