Dental bonding uses the same composite resin (white) to improve or change a patient’s teeth. Bonding treatments can be used to fix broken or cracked teeth, change the color of teeth, minimize spaces between teeth, make teeth look larger, or to cover an exposed root from receding gum lines. The bonding process is not only done for cosmetic purposes; it is also good to protect sensitive teeth, fill cavities, and to fill gaps so food no longer is trapped there.
Bonding can give you a better smile without the extensive and costly cosmetic procedure. In most cases, these procedures can be done in less than an hour and will last from six to 12 years. From chipped teeth to discolored teeth to broken teeth, bonding can fix it within minutes.
