If you have chipped, cracked, or another cosmetic imperfection on your teeth, tooth bonding, also known as dental bonding, can help. As opposed to other alternatives, this is a more cost-effective and expedient solution for minor superficial ailments. Here are a few conditions in which bonding can improve the appearance of your smile:

  • Repair a decaying tooth
  • Fix a chip or crack
  • Enhance the appearance of discolored teeth
  • Tighten gaps
  • Alter appearance (length, shape, size)
  • Replace amalgam fillings

How it Works

Similar to setting veneers, your tooth surface will be prepared so the cement takes a stronger hold. To do so, we will use an acidic solution on your teeth before applying the bonding solution.

Once we apply the solution, we can use either ultraviolet light or a laser to dry and set then bond. However, you don't need to be worried, as lasers and UV lights are painless.

The Benefits and Bonding

While we can craft veneers and crowns in the same visit, bonding, especially for minor defects, is often the way to go. Here's why:

  • Avoid a complicated procedure
  • Usually painless, little to no need for sedation
  • The bonding solution is stronger than in veneers
  • Requires less tooth reshaping
  • In many instances, it will last just as long, if not longer, than other methods
