Bonding

» Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored tooth.

» Unlike veneers, which are manufactured in a laboratory and require a customized mold to achieve a proper fit, bonding can be done in a single visit. The    procedure is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth.

» Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures.

» The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to    improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth.

» It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth.

» Sometimes, bonding also is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when    gums recede.
