What is Dental Bonding?
If you have slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth, dental bonding might be the right option for you. Dental bonding is a conservative aesthetic dentistry method to repair slightly damaged or unsightly teeth. The bonding process works by applying a color-matched composite resin to a damaged tooth to improve its function and appearance. This material will “bond” with your teeth and will be trimmed, smoothed, and polished to give a natural appearance.
Dental bonding can be used on the front as well as the back of teeth depending on the location and extent of the area requiring restoration.
Thanks to the strength of modern adhesives and the natural look of tooth-colored restorations, dental bonding is just one more way you can seamlessly repair your smile.
