DENTAL BONDING

Bonding is an alternative to porcelein veneers, and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped cracked, discolored or misarranged.

HOW DOES BONDING WORK?

The tooth is prepared for the bonding procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid.
Once the liquid sets, a plastic 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. 

CONSIDERATIONS

The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly.
However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth.
Bonding typically lasts2-3 years before need of repair.
