Dental Bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth.
Unlike veneers and crowns, which are customized tooth coverings that must be manufactured in a lab, Dental Bonding can be done in our offices. Another advantage, compared with veneers and crowns, is that the least amount of tooth enamel is removed. Also, unless Dental Bonding is being performed to fill a cavity, anesthesia is typically not required.
Bonding is an option for:
Repairing decayed teeth
Closing spaces between teeth
Improving the appearance of discolored teeth
Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
