What is dental bonding?
Composite resin material used in white/tooth colored fillings can be bonded directly to the outside surface of the tooth. This allows us to change the size, shape, and (to some extent) color of the tooth.
How does the procedure work?
Composite bonding works particularly well to close gaps (diastemas) and spaces between teeth. Composite bonding has three benefits over other cosmetic treatment options. First, bonding costs much less than veneers, crowns or braces. Second, unlike veneers and crowns, bonding is very conservative because we don’t need to grind down any part of the natural tooth… we are only adding to the tooth surface. Third, the bonding procedure is a fast, same day, direct procedure which doesn’t require multiple visits.
