If you have a damaged, chipped, or cracked tooth, dental bonding is a quick and easy way to fix the problem and restore your smile. Dental bonding is a procedure in which a type of composite resin is applied to your tooth. Once it hardens, it looks and feels like your natural tooth. Dental bonding can be used to fill in gaps and even out your smile without the use of orthodontics.
Dental bonding has many uses, both functional and cosmetic, including:/p>
Dental bonding is one of the least expensive ways to repair your teeth. The procedure itself is quick and usually doesn’t require anesthesia. The finished product will look completely natural, as your dentist will color match the resin to the rest of your teeth. Dental bonding also does not require large amounts of your natural tooth enamel to be removed, as with crowns of veneers; instead, the surface is etched so the resin will have something to adhere to.
While dental bonding might not last as long as veneers, it’s cheaper, quicker, and can last over a decade. If your dental bonds crack or break, your dentist can easily replace them.
