Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding is a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, discolored or misarranged and is an alternative to veneers.

Tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. A plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed and polished to a natural appearance.

Bonding procedure can be completed in a single visit. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. It typically lasts 3 to 5 years before repair is needed.
