Tooth bonding is the process of applying a tooth-colored composite to repair the tooth. The most common use of bonding is to repair decayed, chipped, fractured, and discolored teeth. Bonding helps make the teeth appear longer and is a cosmetic alternative to filings. Bonding can be done in a single visit to your dentist.
One of the biggest benefits to bonding is that it’s the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedure. Other benefits include the ability to shape and polish the bonding to match the surrounding teeth. It can also be used to close the space between teeth.
