Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is used to restore or improve a smile.

Cosmetic bonding a procedure that uses a tooth-colored resin that is applied and hardened with a special light that helps it fuse to the teeth. This is a versatile procedure that has many applications such as:

* Repair of decayed teeth

* Repair of chipped or cracked teeth

* Improving the appearance of discolored teeth

* Closing gaps between teeth

* Changing the overall look of teeth

* Cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings

* Protection of exposed teeth after gum recession

Cosmetic bonding is also an inexpensive option to more costly procedures such as veneers and crowns. It can also be completed in a relatively short amount of time, 30-60 minutes, per tooth with a minimal amount of enamel removal. However, bonding is not as stain resistant and doesn’t last as long compared to other restorative procedures like crowns, veneers, or fillings. This makes cosmetic bonding ideal for temporary corrections.
