Dental bonding is an alternative to porcelain veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or poorly spaced. We prepare the tooth for the procedure 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. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished.
Cosmetic bonding can often be completed in a single office visit, and it can improve the appearance of your tooth significantly. However, since 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. Dental bonding typically lasts three to five years before it needs repair.
