Dental bonding is an alternative to teeth veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for chipped, cracked, discolored, or misarranged teeth.
How does dental bonding work?
The tooth is prepared for tooth bonding 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. The resin is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance.

Considerations for Dental Bonding
The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can significantly improve the appearance of teeth. Because 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. Typically, bonding lasts three to five years before the need for repair.
