What is Tooth Bonding Used For?
Tooth bonding can be used to treat a variety of dental concerns, including:
- Spaces between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Minor chips, cracks or damage to teeth
- Tooth discoloration
What to Expect from Tooth Bonding
Tooth bonding is a quick, simple treatment that is typically completed in a single visit. Similar to a basic dental filling, tooth bonding is an additive procedure that uses a resin material to cover damaged areas of your teeth. Dr. Engelberg or Dr. Mullarkey will customize the bonding material to match the color of your natural teeth. This material is then applied directly to the damaged area and then sculpted into shape.
With good dental hygiene and routine professional care, your bonded tooth can last many years, though it may require some future maintenance. Tooth bonding is a semi-permanent treatment, meaning that it can be reversed later so that dental veneers can be applied. Until then, bonding provides a more conservative and less expensive alternative to veneers.
