Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure to repair discolored, slightly chipped or crooked teeth. During dental bonding, a composite resin material is placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The composite resin is matched to the color of your natural teeth and offers a simple, convenient way to correct cosmetic flaws.

Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and lasts approximately three to five years with proper maintenance. It is non-invasive and is considered to be a cost-effective alternative to permanent restorations like porcelain veneers and crowns. Due to the limitations of bonding, it is best suited for temporary correction of cosmetic defects or for areas with low bite pressure.
