Dental bonding is an alternate to teeth veneers and may be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged.

Dental Bonding

How does dental bonding work?

The tooth is ready for dental bonding by gently etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and carved into the specified form by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.

Considerations for dental bonding

The bonding procedure will typically be completed during a single workplace visit, and may improve the looks of a tooth considerably. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your own enamel, it's more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding usually lasts 3 to 5 years before need of repair.
