Bonding is a cosmetic procedure used to restore chipped, stained, worn or misshapen teeth. It's may also be used to fix a gap between two of your front teeth. The procedure involves no loss of tooth structure and, in fact, can be used to repair minor structural damage.
Bonding involves the layering-on of a strong composite resin which is precisely color-matched to your natural teeth. After each layer is applied, it's hardened with a special, high-intensity light. When enough resin layers are applied, hardened and bonded, the tooth is sculpted and polished to a comfortable, natural-looking result.
