Cosmetic Bonding

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained or have spaces between them. With bonding, tooth-colored materials are applied, or bonded, to the tooth surface with a bright light. Bonding is usually a treatment of choice when the defects are minimum and veneer is not an option. Consultation with a professional is highly recommended to discuss your options.
