Bonding is an alternative to veneers (which uses tooth-colored porcelain overlay), using bonding liquid and composite resin that can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked or discolored. Composite resin is a filling material created to resemble the natural color of your teeth.
Unlike porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding can be completed in one visit. The procedure begins by lightly etching the surface of the tooth to remove some surface enamel and then applying a bonding agent. Once the bonding liquid sets, the composite resin is placed and shaped by our skilled dentist. When set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to restore your tooth’s natural appearance and function.
This quick, inexpensive treatment is an effective way to achieve the beautiful smile of your dreams.
