Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly-chipped, discolored or crooked teeth, often for cosmetic purposes.
The bonding process involves placing a white filling on your tooth to improve its appearance. The tooth-colored filling "bonds" with your teeth and closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth, depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.
Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and can usually be completed in one visit to our office. However, bonding can stain and breaks more easily than other cosmetic treatments like porcelain veneers.
If your bonding does break or chip, please let us know. We can generally patch or repair bonding in one visit.
