Dental bonding is an alternative to teeth veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misaligned.
The tooth is prepared for dental bonding by roughening the surface, lightly etching the tooth, and then, applying a bonding agent. Once the bond sets, a white composite resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.
The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the composite resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding will typically last five years before need of repair but many composites can last much longer.
