is a conservative cosmetic dentistry procedure used to repair minor damage to tooth surfaces. While not as durable or long-lasting as porcelain crowns or veneers, bonding is an economical approach to smooth chipped edges and close small spaces between teeth.
Bonded restorations are small “fillings that are made of resin composite. The composite material is mercury-free and comes in numerous shades to closely match your own teeth. They require very little tooth preparation or drilling and are applied using etchant and pliable plastic materials designed to adhere to the restoration using a special curing light process.
The nature of dental bonding materials gives our doctors the flexibility to change the design until you get exactly the look you want. We often temporarily place bonding to visually communicate and plan the shape, size and shade of porcelain crowns and veneers.
