Cosmetic bonding is a dental technique for:
Repairing and fixing chipped or cracked teeth
Hiding discoloration on the tooth’s surface,
Reducing unsightly gaps between the teeth.
Bonding is used to improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your
smile. It refers to any composite material, usually resin, which is bonded
to an existing tooth. Unlike the placement of crowns, cosmetic bonding
requires removal of little, if any, of the original tooth structure. Cosmetic
bonding has many advantages over crowns: It is a quick process, which
typically takes less than one hour.
It is a popular choice because it does not reduce the tooth’s original
structure and is less expensive. Composites are typically not as durable
and long-lasting as veneers and crowns and may need to be retouched or
replaced every few years.
