Cosmetic tooth bonding

Bonding uses tooth colored composite resin filling material to restore or improve a person’s teeth and smile.

When is dental bonding considered?

  • To repair decayed teeth (especially in front teeth and visible areas)
  • To repair chipped teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • To protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed because of gum recession.

What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Bonding?

Advantages: Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. Unlike veneers and crowns, which are customized tooth coverings that must be manufactured in a laboratory, bonding usually can be done in one office visit unless several teeth are involved.

Disadvantages: Although the material used in dental bonding is somewhat stain resistant, it does not resist stains as well as crowns and veneers. Another disadvantage is that the bonding materials do not last as long nor are as strong as other restorative procedures, such as crowns or veneers. Additionally, bonding materials can chip and break off the tooth
