Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a decayed, fractured or discolored tooth. Unlike veneers, which are lab fabricated and require a customized mold to achieve a proper fit, bonding can be done in a single office visit. The procedure is called bonding because the material essentially bonds to the tooth.
Bonding is among the easiest and cost effective cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be color matched, shaped, and polished to closely resemble the surrounding teeth. Bonding is often used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer, or to change the shape or color of teeth.
Bonding is also generally preferred as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed due to gingival recession.
Please be aware that composite restorations may stain and is more susceptible to breakage than other cosmetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers or full coverage crowns. If the restoration does fracture or chip, please let us know as soon as possible. The restoration can generally be easily repaired in one visit.
